Singles

Hope's Singles Ministry (Journey) provides a safe place for singles to connect with God, His church and one another while addressing the specific needs of singles of all ages and life stages. 

The singles community at Hope includes those who are legally divorced, widowed or have never been married. There isn't a better place to surround yourself with people of faith, meet new friends and embark on new beginnings! Hope offers relevant classes for your needs. Visit the classes page for details.
