WE CAN'T WAIT TO MEET YOU!
In the meantime, check out some frequently asked questions.
What type of church is Hoffnungsau?
We are traditionally and historically a Mennonite Church started by German Mennonite Immigrants. Our ancestors were a part of the anabaptist movement, meaning we believe in "rebaptizing" when our members are old enough to express what their faith means to them. We are active members of Mennonite Church USA. Our congregation and church location comes with a long line of traditions and rich history. You can learn move about the traditional mennonite beliefs here.
We welcome anyone who wants to learn more about Christ's Hopeful View, and believe that all people are children of Christ. We worship with a combination of traditional hymns and modern contemporary music. With members ranging in age from new born children to "well experienced" adults, we have interactive groups for all family members.

What will the service be like?
We worship in a blended style of traditional and contemporary on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month. This includes songs from the hymnals.
2nd and 4th Sundays are led by our Praise Team, and include modern contemporary worship music.
Our multigenerational services are engaging and interactive. While no one is required to participate, we love when our members share their gifts as worship leaders, special music, guest speakers, or door greeters.
What can my kids do?
We offer Sunday Schools for all ages. See our Schedule a Visit section for a list of different age groups.
Our service often features a Children's Story time that invites kids to interact with each other and the congregation.
