OUR VISION STATEMENT

Sharing God’s vision for today’s people;
providing hope for all their tomorrows.

Hope Community Church is truly a vibrant, growing church. It was started with the idea of reaching people in the Foglesville/New Tripoli/Schnecksville triangle. In the past several years, we have reached far beyond those boundaries; welcoming families from many communities, as well as, reaching people around the country through our online presence. The pictures below represent a few of the highlights of our history.
