Hope Alliance Ministries
The ministries of Hope Alliance Church reach out to individuals of all ages. A common thread among them all is the desire to know Jesus Christ and His Word, and to make Him known.
Training the Young
At Hope Alliance Church, we know that the Bible is God�s road map for our lives. Though written through God�s inspiration spanning over three millenniums ago, it is relevant for every person and every need. That�s why we begin teaching it at Awana Clubs for three-year-olds in the Cubbies program through sixth graders in Truth & Training. Our desire is for them to respond to Christ at an early age and seek His direction for their lives.
The emphasis on God's Word continues through Impact Youth, our youth program for seventh through twelfth graders. Weekly meetings include time to hang out and grow friendships, play games, and study God's Word made relevant for teens. Regular fun events enable teens to develop healthy peer relationships and use the group to reach out to their friends.
Another great time for children is Vacation Bible School, which meets annually in June right after school ends for the summer. The week under the tent on the Church property at Kings Valley Road and Ridge Road in Damascus is a highlight for students, teachers, and helpers alike. Many children attend from the community. They learn about the Bible and missions, worship in music, enjoy crafts and games. We've seen many children commit their lives to Christ during this week.
Building Faith and Friendships
Studying the Word is an emphasis of our adult ministries, too. Women's studies and men's studies meet throughout the week. They consist of solid, biblical teaching and include time for prayer and building friendships.
From volunteering with a nonprofit home-building organization to supporting those in need�whether in our community or on the other side of the globe, the people of Hope Alliance desire to reach out, in the words of pastor and author John Piper, with "hearts of love and hands of service."
