Life Together :: By Grace :: Through Jesus Christ

Welcome to Living Hope Church!

We are a community of people who have been transformed by Jesus Christ. He has given us new life so that we can be a living demonstration of the astounding grace he offers to everyone. We took our name from 1 Peter 1:3-5. Jesus has given us a living hope through the gift of life that begins in this world and goes beyond to the next.

Our intention is to put the local back into local church. We found that church life multiplies when members live a short distance from each other. Most of our members live in Crofton, Gambrills, Bowie, and Upper Marlboro along the Route 3 corridor.

Each week we gather together for worship, and we would love for you to come worship with us. Here is some information to help you learn a little bit more about our worship service.

Service Time

Our service begins at 10:00 AM on Sundays.

Service Length

Our worship service typically lasts 60-90 minutes.

What to wear

Most of us wear casual clothes to our worship service.
We shape our worship around the gospel: We sing the gospel in our worship songs, hear the gospel proclaimed in sermon, and are sent out by Jesus to proclaim the gospel. In addition, we celebrate the Lord’s Supper bi-weekly.

 

Children’s Ministry: Children ages 2-10 years old are able to participate in children’s ministry during the preaching portion of our worship service. There is a classroom for children ages 2-4 years old, a Kindergarten class for 5-6 year olds, and an Elementary class for children 7 -10 years old.

MINISTRIES

Children

Each Sunday our worship gatherings provide a fun, safe, and age-appropriate environment for our children to learn about Jesus. We have a great team of volunteers who teach the Bible in creative and relevant ways. Every volunteer has been screened and background checked. There is a classroom for children ages 2-4 years old, a Kindergarten class for 5-6 year olds, and an Elementary class for children 7-10 years old. Unfortunately, due to COVID we do not currently have a nursery for infants, however, we do have an area set up for nursing mothers.

Community Groups

Our church is more than a Sunday service. Our Community Groups meet bi-weekly to connect, pray together, and often share a meal. Please contact us if you’d like to visit a group.

Youth

Once a month, after our Sunday service, our 9-14 year olds gather for a time of fun and fellowship, led by one of our pastors. Parents are always invited and encouraged to attend! Our hope is that this context encourages an understanding of relationship with God, strengthens friendships, and sparks conversations about what it means to walk out a life of faith.
