Frequently Asked Questions

What time does worship begin?
Worship service begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Family Life Center. The primary focus of our services is to worship the risen Lord Jesus Christ through prayer, song, and faithful expository Biblical preaching. The service incorporates both an amazingly gifted choir as well a worshipful praise team. The music blends the faithful traditional hymns with the worshipful contemporary Christian music many enjoy on Christian radio today. You will be welcomed by a church family that is striving to be the body of Christ so that those who visit Good Hope would experience the love of Christ through us.

Our services are family oriented as we encourage families to have their family together for the worship time. As an option for parents, children's activities are available outside the worship service to children 5 years old through 5th grade during the preaching segment of our services.
