My husband and I shared our first date at Hope. We were both going thru a hard time and my friends told me I should go to Hope. His friends told him the same. We were friends, so we just said let’s try Hope together. We did, and we were hooked. We both felt Craig was talking straight at us. My husband even said he felt like the “dragon” that he felt hovering over him disappeared during that sermon and didn’t come back.
Four years later we were married at Hope. We attended every Sunday we were in town. For a time, he was a Deacon and I was an elder. We were involved in various ministries. Sadly, my husband passed away last year, and his service was at Hope. I felt literally lifted up by all the prayers I received. Hope literally has been with us for the full cycle of life. Thank God it is here for everyone.
