welcome to Hope

Who We are


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 hundreds 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.

Together we work identify what hell has stolen in our community and how we, as Hope Community Church, can give life by reclaiming it in Jesus’ name.

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

You are welcome no matter who you are or

where you have been.



Saturday at 6 p.m. and Sunday at 10 a.m.

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:

*Please note that operations are currently being modified due to COVID-19 and may not be as described below. Click here for the latest updates. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us!


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, scripture, announcements, and a message. Occasionally the service also includes communion or special presentations.


The typical attire at Hope ranges from casual to "Sunday best." You'll see some people in jeans and t-shirts while others are in suits . Come wearing what you feel is appropriate and comfortable for worship.


Hope has a large, paved parking lot and covered drop-off areas at our two entrances. For weekend worship gatherings, we encourage you to use the new, west entrance, which is closest to our sanctuary.


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. Visit the welcome center in the middle of the foyer and let us know you're a first time guest and our attendants will be happy to help - we also have a gift for you! 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 in finding a seat for you and your family. All of our volunteers are here to help make your visit a great one.


Children's programs and nursery services are available during our Sunday gatherings in a safe and kid-friendly environment. Please check-in with your child at the station located in the children's wing (east side of the building) where you will also pick them up after the worship service. If this is your first time visiting us, we will collect some basic information about you and your child(ren) in order to better serve you. 


Before the service, grab some light refreshments or a cup of coffee. These are available to all at no cost.


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 and modern worship songs. We will have the words to the songs projected on the wall so that you can follow along.


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 if you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior.

A statement of love and equality from our Senior Pastor

Hope Community Church desires to be a family of faith demonstrating love, acceptance, and forgiveness to everyone we meet. We are imperfect and flawed people, seeking to walk in the way of Jesus.

We want to experience the kind of equality described in the New Testament. In Revelation 7:9-10 the Bible records a vision of the Kingdom of Heaven as revealed to the Apostle John. It describes “a vast crowd, too great to count, from every nation and tribe and people and language” worshipping before God’s throne. When Jesus prayed, “Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven,” this is part of what he was describing; a vast, diverse crowd with one commonality, a people of God.

This is our desire as “kingdom people” at Hope Community Church. We grieve this world’s brokenness revealed in racism, injustice, inequality, hatred, strife, murder, and mayhem. We desire to be God’s “kingdom people” extending His welcome and love to all we meet. We know that the problems we face in our world today are not merely political problems, social problems, and systems problems. All of these are evidence of a deep spiritual problem. We pray for spiritual revival in our world and in our own hearts.

Senior Pastor
