Macky and Friends Re-Opening Update:

While Hope Church is now open for in-person worship services with safety precautions in place, Hope 4 Macky & Friends remains closed at this time. Hope 4 Kids will reopen the weekend of September 12 & 13, however, this DOES NOT INCLUDE Macky & Friends. We miss you greatly and cannot wait to gather again in person. However, our ministry must consider many factors into a decision to open for in-person meetings as our participants fall into a “vulnerable populations” category and we must err on the side of caution. Our leadership team continues to consult with experts in the medical field to determine the safest course of action and at this time, we have been advised that it is not in the best interests of the families we serve to reopen. We will continue to stay connected to you moving forward through a variety of digital options. Please pray for God’s wisdom and guidance for our staff and volunteers. We will keep you informed as we move forward in this ever changing and challenging world. We love you! For questions and more information, please contact Karen Walls (Karen.Walls@HopeChurchMemphis.com). Please visit our Facebook page here and stay up-to-date with any further notices by visting this webpage frequently.

Continue to worship with us online Saturday nights at 5:30 pm and Sunday mornings at 9:30 & 11:30 am.
