Current Series


 Updated 9/18/2020

As the weather gets cooler, we needed to find a place for us to meet indoors for our worship service.  We have checked out many places and have concluded that God has led us to a specific place.  Join us this Sunday and found out where and when!  (We will continue to meet at Millennium Park for the next two Sundays, 9/20 and 9/27.  Please see below.)

Also, don't forget to join us for our Zoom congregational meeting after our worship service this Sunday at noon (Zoom Meeting ID: 871 4064 9647; Passcode: 031705).


For those who cannot or are not yet ready to join us in-person, you can still join us online via YouTube Live!  Just click on this link to connect with our church's YouTube page & then click the icon labeled "Hope Worship Service 9/20/2020" (Note: The service will begin at 9:30am, but we will begin live-streaming at 9:20am to give you plenty of time to connect.)



  • The service begins at 9:30am.  We will be meeting at Millennium Park (201 Country Place, Lindenhurst, IL 60046; just down the street from Bonner Farm).  We encourage you to come early to get settled before the service begins.  If you are feeling sick or running a fever prior to service, we would ask that you stay home.
  • Please bring your own lawn chairs.  We will be social distancing.  You can sit either under the pavilion or under the large canopy.  We ask that the picnic tables under the pavilion be used for family groups to sit together.
  • We strongly encourage the wearing of masks while entering our worship space and visiting with others. After you find your place to sit and are socially distanced, feel free to remove your masks.  It is recommended that during the singing time, you also wear your masks.
  • Worship programs and song sheets will be on the welcome table as you arrive.  For added safety, the bulletins will be put in a ziplock bag at least 24 hours prior to the service.  The bulletin and song sheets will also be on our message website.  If you prefer, you can also access the song sheet up on your phone during worship to see the lyrics.
  • Restrooms will be available.
  • Playground equipment is available for your little ones, but it is to be used at your discretion.  Hope Community Church does not guarantee the cleanliness or safety of any playground equipment.
  • The elementary class and middle school/high school class will meet together during the message portion of the service.  They will social distance with their class in an area a short distance away from our worship area.  In addition, our nursery/pre-school/kindergarten class will meet during the first 10-20 minutes of the message and then rejoin us for the remainder of the service.  Feel free to bring a blanket and toys for your child/children to play with while seated with you.

IN CASE OF RAIN, we will meet together via ZOOM and all meeting information can be found here: Meeting ID: 287 775 281 Password:019752

AND FINALLY...... The leadership at Hope has worked diligently to try to comply with all the state and county guidelines for worship services.  It is our greatest intention to do what we can to keep all of us safe.  Remember, in the spirit of love and unity, we want to respect each other's feelings and fears during this scary and uncertain time.  The precautions we take are for the emotional and physical protection of others, and we appreciate everyone's cooperation.  Thanks Hope!
