At Hope Presbyterian Church we encourage everyone to do more than attend worship on Sunday. We call it Worship+2. Come to worship, then also grow your faith at a class or volunteer in some way. Together, an active, engaged church can do so much good! So pick a class that fits your schedule and interests. If none fit, try the Old Testament Reading Plan on your own time.

Anxious to Talk About It
Sundays, 11:15 a.m.
“What if I say the wrong thing?” “I’m white–is race really something I need to talk about? I’m worried I’ll be called a racist!” “What does race have to do with faith, anyway?” “Why do we have to keep talking about this?” If talking about racism makes you anxious, afraid, or even angry, you’re not alone. In Anxious to Talk about It, pastor and professor Carolyn B. Helsel draws on her success with white congregations to offer insight and tools to embrace, explore and work through the anxious feelings that often arise in these hard conversations. Through powerful personal stories, new observations on racial identity development, and spiritual practices to help engage issues of racial justice prayerfully, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of race in America and your place in it. You will learn how to join conversations with courage, compassion, and knowledge of self, others, and the important issues at stake.

Thursday Evening Study
Thursdays beginning August 26, at 7:00 pm.
Introducing the Reformed Faith: Biblical Revelation, Christian Tradition, Contemporary Significance
We will examine Reformed beliefs on a variety of theological topics, including Scripture, the Trinity, sin, salvation, the person of Jesus, and Baptism. We will also discuss distinctive emphases of the Reformed faith and show how Reformed beliefs relate to the broader ecumenical family of Christian teachings. This class is for anyone who ever thinks or contemplates about the Christian faith, regardless of prior knowledge. This class would be especially beneficial for persons who were raised in other Christian traditions like, Baptist, Methodist or Catholic. This class is online only.
