hope families is our ministry for all things families and kids related.

We value people from every age, just as God does. We worship a God who created us to live in community, and while all of us have different experiences of this, we want to ensure there are opportunities for everyone to find a place to connect and build relationship. God’s heart is that we know we are loved, valued and accepted and his desire is to bring people together. It's why we are so passionate about helping families flourish and establishing people in community, from the youngest to the oldest.
