We are so glad you visited with us!  If you have just decided to give your life to Christ or have made a recommitment to Christ, we want to say: Congratulations you have just made the most important decision of your life!
OK what’s next you say? 

That’s where the folks here at Hope UMC come in.  We want to help you make those first important steps towards a relationship with Jesus Christ easy.

  •  Join us any Sunday for either the 8:30 informal praise service or the 10:45 spirit filled traditional service.   All are welcome.
  • Start reading God’s word.  A good place to start is The Gospel of Luke located in the New Testament.  If you don’t have a Bible be sure to contact Mindy Kobel, Adm. Asst. @ 570-374-5724 and she will make sure you get your own Bible.
  • Start a conversation with God, each day.  Talk to Him just like you would a trusted friend.  He is there all the time and just waiting to hear from you.  Use the prayers that are included in your gift bag as a beginning point.
  • Be sure to check out the opportunities brochure for other ways you can get involved.
