Most people long to be a part of something bigger than themselves. They want their life to count for something bigger than themselves! We believe God actually designed us with that longing – and He has gifted us with specific gifts, talents, and skills we can use to fulfill that desire. It is our prayer that connecting with Hope will provide not only a place to grow in your faith – but also an opportunity to offer something to the church and to our neighbors!!
God calls us to go into our community, our nation, and the world to see lives transformed. At Hope, we desire to live that out through our partnerships with multiple ministries and missionaries, locally and globally!

Pray & Go is an opportunity for members of our church to walk and pray for the people in Waynesboro. So far, we have prayed over every home in the Pelham neighborhood. That is over 500 homes we have blessed!
As we pray for the people in the homes, we will leave a door hanger with information about our church, including an opportunity for people to respond by an email if they would like for us to pray specifically about an issue in their life.
