What to expect

We're glad you're here!

Finding a church can be a bit intimidating.  Hope River is committed to making you feel at home.  At Hope River you will find a casual, relaxed environment and a warm, welcoming team of volunteers who are there to assist you on your visit.

Where do I enter the YMCA?  We meet in the large gymnasium of the Jersey Shore Branch YMCA.  You can enter through the entrances nearest the main parking lots.  There will be signs and friendly people showing you the way to the entrance.

FIRST TIME HELP- Stop at the "Information Center" table as you enter and you will find a team of welcoming individuals who are trained to help you. Let them know you are a first time guest, and they will even give you a small gift as a thank you.

How should I dress?

Come as you are! People come wearing everything from t-shirts to suit jackets. Whatever you feel comfortable in is okay with us.

Will there be anything for my kids?

Hope River has a great group of volunteers who love children and are committed to providing a safe and fun experience for our children.  Part way through the worship service, children will leave for Hope River Kids.  To ensure safety of our children, all workers must clear a background check.  While in Hope River Kids, your children will learn about the Bible in age appropriate and exciting lessons.
