We are so glad that you have chosen to check us out and join us in beautiful Lewiston, Idaho. We meet at 6PM on Sunday Nights at Valley Christian Center (3215 Echo Hills Dr. Lewiston).
What to expect when you join us:
We have a full band worship team and we love to worship, sing and praise our Lord with all our strength, engery and a variety of dynamics: banners, shouts, and moments of silence and reflection. Our attention is put on Jesus so that our spirit, soul and body are ready to receive the message.
We believe the bible is the Word of God and is for teaching, equipping and leading the Body of Christ in all righteousness. Our primary preacher is Pastor Jeph Chavez, yet we have a preaching team as well as guest preachers that will minister periodically. If you have a bible bring it and plan on using it. If you don't we have plenty to share and give away if you need one.
We love kids and welcome them at Hope. We provide children's ministry for K-6 graders (Kingdom Kids) during our Sunday services with the expection of the 3rd Sunday of each month (See below about our Super Sundays). We also provide nursery care for the little ones 1yrs. old -preschool (Tiny Tots).
We have a growing and fun youth group here at Hope that meets simultaneously while the main service is going on. Our youth leader is commitment to creating an environment that is both Bible based teaching and fun. They meet weekly with the expection of the 3rd Sunday of the month (See below about our Super Sundays)
Our services usually run about 90 minutes. At the end of the service we provide ministry time and prayer. If you are looking for prayer please plan to stay after service and join our ministry team up front. We also welcome your prayer requests and appointments may be made to meet with one our ministry team members.
On the 3rd Sunday of each month we do things a little different from our other Sunday gatherings. We believe in the unity of the Body of Christ therefore, we encourage members and friends of Hope Chapel to join with Valley Christian Center at their 10:30AM service. On Sunday nights at 6pm instead of having another traditional service we do something we call breakout groups. We keep our children and youth with their families during this time in an effort to stay connected. We still offer Tiny Tots child care for the little ones. We offer 3 groups to choose from as a way of getting equipped from leaders in the church. Those groups involve worship, prayer, and Word activation. Upon choosing which group you would like to attend we then breakout and get blessed. We close the evening by all returning to the sanctuary to hear testimonies about how God ministered to us. We have come to love our time on these Super Sundays.
"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." Romans 15:13
