(We will be asking people to mask during the worship service while Eau Claire County is at HIGH status for transmitting COVID-19. Signs will be posted on doors indicating the status and request for masks. Our weekly worship service is online for those who wish to worship with us from home.)


With Christ as our center, we are called to reach out and share God's love to all.


We believe God calls us to continue a faithful witness of openness and acceptance of others. It is our understanding that God is calling our church to help people live a faith that is meaningful and relevant for their lives. This includes reaching out to others, sharing our faith and nurturing those who are here to help them grow in faith.


We welcome anyone at Hope, because people are valued by God.
We are committed to helping people of all walks of life grow in their faith.

We value small group ministries, as a way for people to live out their faith in a context of a supportive environment.

We are committed to mission, continually reaching beyond ourselves to the Eau Claire community and the world at large to share the Hope of Jesus within us.

We endeavor to provide quality experiences through our worship and ministries, understanding that we are engaged in helping people come in touch with God in a way that is meaningful for their lives.
