The Challenging Call of Parenting

5 week series beginning January 15th

You would think that raising children would be simple.  After all, people have been doing it since the beginning of mankind.  But the reality is that parenting is very challenging.  On the one hand, providing food, shelter, and clothing is fairly straight-forward.  On the other hand, helping a child develop spiritually, emotionally, relationally, and mentally is a daunting mission.  Yet it is a mission that every parent is called to fulfill, and how we fulfill that calling has profound, lifelong implications.  So what does God have to say about this calling?  What would He say about parenting our children and grandchildren?  Join us as we begin a new 5-part series, 

“The Challenging Call of Parenting.”


You can't judge a book by its cover, and you definitely can't judge a church by its building!  So when you come to Hope, be ready for a surprise!  We are located in the commercial center at 15 Commerce Drive along Center Street in Grayslake.  Next door to Great Lakes Antique Boutique 2 and across the street from State Bank of the Lakes, Hope Community Church is in a highly visible and central location for Grayslake and neighboring communities with easy access from Routes 45, 83, and 120.

The first thing you'll notice is that we are very casual and our objective is to be welcoming to all.  In this time of Covid-19 restrictions, we try to balance safety and distance with warmth and welcome.  Hopefully, you'll feel that as you enter. 

When the service starts, you'll hear contemporary music that is aimed towards encouraging your heart to turn towards God.  You'll hear a message on real life issues based on the Biblical principles that God has given us through His Word.  You'll hear from real people who are also on their personal journey to know God better.  You won't be singled out, or put on the spot, or asked to give money!

We believe that Jesus Christ touches lives just as He did 2000 years ago. So, whether you are seeking to begin a relationship with God, or you want to deepen your walk with Him, our hope is that God will touch your life as He has ours. Come join us and see what He does!
