We are excited to offer you a night of JOY for the whole family! Let's make this Christmas about GIVING and GENEROSITY! 

God has blessed us at Hope Church with an abundance of provisions and it is our desire to share with others in the Chicago area and around the world at Christmas. On Friday, November 22, 2019 our Hope Church congregations will come together for a night of Missions Experience and Giving. There will be 2 family-friendly experiences for you on this night with hands-on activities for the kids!
