Pure Hope Church

There’s a lot of churches out there.  Pure Hope Church hits different :).  It is the kind of church that is wholeheartedly committed to the community.  You will find us giving out groceries, providing housing, helping with community development.  You may be wondering what Sunday is like?  For us, Sunday is a celebration of what God has been doing all week in our neighborhoods.  We are the kind of people that go to church to give our best to God and to receive from His word and His people.  Come love with us.
