KidsWorld is for ages 6 weeks through 5th grade and offers a safe environment where children will always be valued. We will consistently share the word of God with them and come alongside our families to foster a relationship between their children and Jesus. We will teach them how to be a pillar of light in our community through our words, actions, environment, and leading by example.
With the name “The Kingdom Project”, we partner with other area churches to have our youth come together weekly in the Chapel on Wednesday nights at 7pm. There’s a time of worship along with engaging speakers who teach the Bible in a way that’s fun and life-changing! No matter who you are, what you believe or where you come from, all are welcomed. We strive to give our young people a safe place to share their hearts and struggles, and to grow in their relationship with Christ. There’s opportunities to serve the community and take part in cool events with other youth.
Our college aged and older young adults meet Thursday nights at 7pm at Fairway Coffee. We value authentic worship, Bible-based teaching, and building lasting relationships. We blend our gatherings with fun events and are constantly adding great people to our journey.
A portion of the Spartan’s Creed states “This is my shield. It is not mine alone, it protects my brother and my city. I will never let my brother out of its shadow nor my city out of its shelter”. We like to say our shield is for our brother and our sword is for our enemy.
We know that men face unique challenges and responsibilities that come with being the godly leader of their home. With that comes stress and expectations that we were never meant to carry. Men’s 300 strives to give men a place to encourage and strengthen one another – where iron sharpens iron, and relationships are built on biblical truths.
Because we realize how difficult and important it is for men to have strong relationships with other men, we also meet for outside special events such as rafting, hiking, and camping, movie nights, and high school sporting events.
Men’s 300 meets on Thursday mornings at 10am and Thursday evenings at 6:30pm. We have Bible study using DVD teachings from various speakers, and challenge each other in small group discussion.
Women of Hope
Women of Hope provides opportunity for women to build lasting, authentic relationships with one another. It’s a place where strength and hope are gleaned from the only One who matters and the only Truth that will stand – Jesus Christ and the Word of God.
Women of Hope meet on Thursday mornings at 10am and Thursday evenings at 6:30pm. We have a time of worship, a DVD teaching from world class speakers, followed by small group discussion. We’re passionate about digging deep in to the life-changing Word of God and we invite you to join us as we sow His Word deep in our hearts.
Living Free is the recovery, restoration, and support ministry of Living Hope Church. It began in 2003 to help people address real-life issues and heal the brokenness that life can bring. Living Free has been a safe haven for thousands of men and women who want to remove the obstacles in their lives that are keeping them from a full and rewarding life and journey with Jesus.
We meet on Tuesday nights beginning with dinner and fellowship at 5:30pm, followed by worship and a message at 6:30 and then support groups at 7:30. A few of the groups currently meeting include the following:
• Her Journey: women healing from physical and mental abuse
• Men’s Purity: recovery from sexual addiction
• Living Clean: recovery from chemical dependency
• Women Made Whole: equipping women with tools to face everyday struggles
• Divorce Care: healing from the aftermath of divorce
• Hope, Healing, Freedom For Families of Inmates: support for families with incarcerated loved ones
• A New Beginning: for women who have suffered the trauma of sexual abuse
• Emotional Eating: discovering the reasons for overeating and learning what the process is for healing and support
Living Hope Church is situated in an area with great need. Many in our local community are living in poverty or homelessness, with no guarantee of food or shelter on any given day. We recognize that we can’t do everything to fix the problem, but we have to do something to help.
Our Live Love Center is open twice a week to provide meals and a place to hang out for awhile. There is great food, music, and a short inspirational message. It’s a place to make a connection and be welcomed; a place where people aren’t judged for their circumstances, but are accepted because Christ first accepted us.
In the winter during extreme weather we often open as an overflow overnight warming center, serving hot meals and providing cold weather items such as sleeping bags, tarps, warm coats, socks, and gloves.
We are blessed by your donations of non-perishable items for food boxes that are distributed twice a month, gently used clothing for our clothing closet, and winter items such as those mentioned above.
Located in the Chapel at 2533 NE Andresen Rd
Wednesday: 12:00 – 2:30pm
Sunday: 12:00 – 2:30pm
Our Downtown campus led by Pastor Brian Norris meets on Sundays at 10am. This campus exists so families who are underserved in that area and without transportation have the opportunity to have breakfast and worship together.
LifeGroups are a great way to connect with others, build long-lasting relationships, and deepen your faith in God. Every week large and small groups gather in homes, coffee shops, and at our campus to do life together.
Sports ministry at Living Hope Church is now in its 6th year. What began with just co-ed softball has grown to multiple leagues across different sports, involving over 750 participants! We currently offer co-ed leagues in bowling, basketball, softball, and volleyball, as well as an annual golf tournament, with new sports under consideration for the future. With the name Legacy Sports, we invite other churches in Clark County to join us in this ministry.
Our vision for Legacy sports ministry is to:
- Provide safe and fun ways to meet, connect, and do life with others.
- Create opportunity for outreach by inviting our friends, family, and neighbors to join us in the non-threatening sports environment.
- Demonstrate the love of Christ in our everyday lives and help others find it for themselves.
Be Fit Ministry
The Be Fit ministry strives to reach people for Jesus with a focus on good health and total wellness. We want you to be healthy physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. We connect through physical activities such as exercise for health, sports, healthy eating lifestyle transformation, and we provide support for those who are experiencing emotional or stressful lifestyles.
Be Fit is a God-centered program that believes in constantly improving our health and wellness so that we can be whole with God and fulfill His will by sharing the Gospel and making disciples for His Kingdom.
We provide numerous activities throughout the year as well as small groups during the week such as boot camp, food addiction support groups, and special events.

Encore (Senior Adults)
Encore provides opportunity for our more “seasoned” community (ages 50+) to gather the second Saturday of each month at 10am for brunch, worship, support, encouragement, and fellowship. We strive to create an environment where people can not only have their own needs met, but can come alongside others to meet social, spiritual, physical, and emotional needs.
We were never meant to do life along, so we also support, inform, and encourage each other with retirement, household, and outreach needs as well.
We believe that spouses must intentionally invest in each other in order to have a successful marriage. The marriage group meets weekly on Thursday evenings at 6:30pm and uses a number of studies that cover biblical principles for a Godly marriage, communication, and how to improve the quality of your relationship. Various events also happen throughout the year designed to provide quality time with your spouse and strengthen the marriage relationship.
Parents of children ages newborn to 13 years come together on Thursday evenings at 6:30pm to connect with other parents to learn and grow together. They learn ideas and biblical principles on how to raise families to follow God’s word while making their family a fun place to be.
This is the place for motorcycle enthusiasts to connect, build relationships, and go on rides together as a group. Planned rides are both short and long distance. There are also opportunities for service in the community that are sponsored by this ministry, such as the Toy Run in November.
This is a Christian group of friends who are active, do lots of fun activities together and who seek to put Christ first and foremost in their lives. Just to be clear, this isn’t a dating site. If you happen to meet your future spouse along the way that’s fine, but that is not at all a focus. They meet the third Saturday of each month in the Chapel at 8pm, and various other times for get-togethers.
Christian Business Network
This includes Christian business owners or professional services who meet offsite the second and fourth Thursday at 9am with a desire to represent Christ through their business. The goal is to build Christian leaders who lead in and outside of their workplace, making a positive impact for Christ in the community. We believe you cannot separate personal faith and work, and seek to serve the community through our talents and gifts while doing all we do as though we are serving the Lord.
We meet weekly for prayer at 9am on Wednesdays. This is not a traditional prayer meeting or worship service, but an opportunity to grow in friendship and intimacy with Christ, while interceding for our city, our church, and our nation. All are welcome to come and go freely and stay as long as they like.
Living Hope is also one of 31 churches in the county that participates in the “One Day” initiative, covering the county in prayer every day, 24 hours a day. Our days as part of this initiative are the first and third Tuesdays of each month.
We also hold a prayer class on the 4th Sunday of each month, on a rotating schedule:
• Prayer Orientation: the culture of prayer and the 7 different areas to be involved in
• Basic Prayer: what and how Jesus taught His disciples to pray
• One on One: what prayer team members need to know about praying one on one with others
Short term mission teams serve in various places both nationally and internationally. We’ve had incredible opportunities to build homes, churches, and see thousands of people come to know Christ.
