HOW DO I KNOW IF I SHOULD STAY HOME?


Your safety, and the safety of our entire Hope Community Church family is tremendously important to us. If you or someone you live with has had a fever, any respiratory symptoms, or been asked to quarantine in the last 14 days - you need to stay home. If you are in an at-risk health category due to age or a health condition, or if you are a caregiver or supporting others who are at risk, or if you struggle wearing a mask for an hour - you should consider staying home. We have been working hard to prepare for quality Live Streaming of our services, to unite our whole church family in a shared experience from wherever you are!


If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Director of Guest Services, Julie Kupecky.
