Sharing Hope Seminar: Evangelism, Service, Hospitality

Breakfast and Discussion

Christ calls us to share hope in every sphere of life. But unfortunately, we’re often bad at obeying his command. We are generally too complacent, self-centered, or afraid to reach out to those around us with the hope of Christ. So how do we do it? Join us for this seminar to reflect on the Christian call to care about those around us.

Please RSVP to Will Stern at PastorWill@ExploreHopeChurch.org or (484) 589-0464.

If you could ask God one question, what would it be?

Maybe you grew up in church but never understood what it’s all about. Maybe you’re a skeptic who has a lot of questions about Christianity. Maybe you don’t know anything about Christianity but you’re interested in learning more about Jesus. Maybe you’re a Christian but you’re looking for an opportunity reconnect to your faith.

With a relaxed environment, we’ll begin each week with a dinner for participants and their children. You don’t need to know anything about the Bible; you can be religious or irreligious. Also, you won’t be asked to sing, pray, or read out loud. And you can ask any question you want!

Loving the Neighbor in Your Neighborhood: An Introduction to Biblical Hospitality

Loving the Neighbor in Your Neighborhood: An Introduction to Biblical Hospitality

When we hear the word “hospitality,” we often think about food, folded napkins, and a clean house. But according to the Bible, hospitality is a calling for every single believer. It is about our call to love our neighbors in concrete, tangible ways. It's about having open hearts and an open home, so we can serve others and share the love of Christ. But it’s hard to practice in the modern world, which is why we need help from God’s Word.

Join us for a three-week seminar that will explore the Bible's teaching on hospitality and its practical implications for us today. This seminar will be hosted an hour before our worship service at the Darlington Arts Center on the following days:

  • August 4 at 9:30 AM

  • August 11 at 9:30 AM

  • August 18 at 9:30 AM

Everyone is welcome and feel free to invite a friend!

Women’s Bible Study


Starts Monday, July 22
2nd and 4th Monday each month


Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World
Like Mary, we as women long to sit at the Lord's feet but the demands of a busy world won't leave us alone. Like Martha, we love Jesus and want to serve him, yet we struggle with weariness, resentment, feelings of inadequacy, and other emotions. In this discussion based study, we will examine where we are at, where we'd like to be, and support each other in the journey of drawing closer to our Lord: deepening our devotion, strengthening our service, and doing both with less stress and greater joy.

New Sermon Series: The Book of Ruth

Christians should always look for opportunities to share their hope in every sphere of life.  We don’t need a special day to invite our friends and family to church, but sometimes we do need a friendly reminder!  September 16th is a great day to invite your friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers to Hope Church. First of all, it’s “National Back to Church Sunday” where Christians around the country extend a warm invitation and welcome to their neighbors.  But more importantly, Hope Church is starting our new sermon series through the book of Ruth, a book of the Bible about a marginalized immigrant who experienced the steadfast love of the Lord.
