welcome

Who We are

LOVE GOD, LOVE PEOPLE, MAKE DISCIPLES, CHANGE THE WORLD.


Hope Community Church is a non-denominational church that began meeting in Niles, Michigan in 1999. What began as a small group of nine people meeting in a home has grown to over 400 in worship today.  We are an evangelical, Christ-centered, family-oriented church with contemporary worship and practical biblical messages that are easy to understand and apply to your life.


The heartbeat of Hope from the very beginning has been to reach the unchurched and lead them to be fully devoted followers of Christ. Our aim is to love God and each other, and to share with others the good news of Jesus Christ as we worship, teach, serve, and nurture spiritual growth, all for the glory of God until He returns.


Fellowship is a very important dynamic of our church. We believe in bringing the family together often for the purpose of prayer, encouragement, and the breaking of bread. We also strive to protect one another by providing the needs of the people and to continually spur each other on in the faith.


We invite you to be a part of this great adventure.

new here?

We would love to meet you! If you're new to Hope and joining us for a weekend worship gathering, here are a few things you can expect:


WEEKEND SERVICES We offer two celebration services on the weekend: Saturday at 6 p.m. and Sunday at 10 a.m. Each service lasts for just over an hour and includes prayer, worship, announcements, and a sermon. Occasionally the service also includes communion or special presentations.


PARKING You're sure to find a spot in our newly expanded parking lot. We invite you to use our convenient, covered drop-off areas at each major entrance. For weekend worship gatherings, please use the new, west entrance, which is closest to our sanctuary. The door to our east entrance is locked once the service begins to secure our children's wing.


GREETING When you walk through the doors at Hope for a weekend worship service, you'll be met with a warm smile and a handshake by one of our greeters. Ushers will be standing by the doors of the sanctuary to welcome you to the service and provide you with a worship flyer. They can also assist you in finding a seat for you and your family. Visit the information desk in the center of the foyer if you have any questions or would like some assistance. All of our volunteers are there to assist you.


COFFEE Before the service head on over to our Coffee Fellowship area in the foyer for light refreshments.


WORSHIP Worship at Hope is not a performance. Our worship team doesn't strive to be a cover band of the latest artists; rather, they lead us in a mix of old hymns of faith and modern worship songs. 


COMMUNION Communion  is served on the first weekend of every other month. At Hope, we practice "open communion," meaning everyone is welcome to receive communion with us as long as you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior.


CHILDREN Children's programs and child care are available during our Sunday services in a safe and kid-friendly environment. Our nursery is available on Saturday evenings and Sunday mornings. Please check-in your child at the station located in the children's section (east wing) and your child will be there for you to pick them up after the worship service.
