Whether you choose to attend Hopevale in Saginaw or Bay City, you will find many of the same things. We are one church in two locations. Saginaw is bigger. Bay City is held in a school. So, those things are different. What's the same? Live worship in each location. Same teaching pastor each week (shown via video in Bay City). Same dynamic ministries for Kids birth - 5th grade during service times. So, the people and feel are a little different but the essentials of Hopevale Church are the same.
What will it feel like if we walk in those Hopevale front doors in Saginaw or Bay City? Great question. We realize that trying something new can be anxiety producing but coming to Hopevale is about as easy as it gets. What will you see? People just like you. People from our community who are looking to take steps closer to God. Differing ages and stages, but that's one of the things that makes Hopevale such a great place. Walk into the auditorium, sit through a service and any nervousness you felt in coming will melt away. The music is engaging and inspiring and the teaching is easy to follow and taken straight from the Bible.
At Hopevale we believe in three key essentials: The Bible is the Word of God, Jesus is the Son of God and Salvation is by grace through faith. If you have questions after the service or want to talk with someone, the Welcome Center at both campuses is right in the center of the lobby and the volunteers there would love to meet you. (They even have a couple of free donut coupons waiting for you to redeem in our coffee area!).
Stick around in the lobby and meet some new friends. We realize that ‘church’ is not just a church service, it’s people. And the people who make up Hopevale invite you to jump in and join us!
Can’t wait to meet you!
