What is First Step?


If you spent time with us online or in-person this past year, we’d like to personally invite you to FIRST STEP.

FIRST STEP is specifically designed with you in mind. Pastor Stephen is there along with other staff members and elders who share our heart for who Hope is and who God is calling us to be in the years ahead.

We have a very clear vision and sense of direction, and we would love to help you discern whether or not God is calling you to join us. It’s always nice to be anonymous initially, and we know it’s been more challenging to connect over the past year due to COVID, but if you’re open, I would like to encourage you to take the FIRST STEP into community. Maybe you’ve already started to get connected, but we’d still love to meet you!
