A prayer labyrinth is an ancient tool
which had been used by pilgrims for

A labyrinth is a vehicle of prayer.

A labyrinth is a metaphor for life with all
of its twists and turns, ups and downs.

A prayer labyrinth is a symbol of a life
of walking with God.
Using a prayer labyrinth allows you to employ all of your senses while you pray
reinforcing in a physical way the reality that there is only one center in life and that is
in God.
How to use the Prayer Labyrinth:

1. What would you like to pray for today?

2. At the entrance, be still for a moment and ask God to walk with you.

3. Enter, follow the path, move at your own pace. Notice what is happening
around you and make it part of your prayer.

4. At the center, rest in Christ’s loving presence. Reflect on what has happened so
far on your prayer walk.

5. When you are ready, take the pathway back out. Continue your prayer, asking
God to incorporate what He has been showing you into your life and service of

6. When you reach the threshold, before you leave, thank God for whatever has
happened during your prayer experience.

7. Afterwards, reflect on your prayer walk.

Why Go To Church?

Every Sunday, many of us go to church while many others are sleeping or engaged in
other weekend activities. After a week of work and chores, should we spend part of
our short weekend in church?

For those of us that spend that hour each Sunday in church, the answer is a
resounding YES. But many of us have had to overcome our own reasons for not
going. Do you have your reasons? Click Here to Learn More

Rector's Message:

Welcome to Hope!

Hope is a joy-filled church where every person can come to find rest from the
hectic pace of life and ref­uge from life's storms. Hope is a place where you can
be filled when you are empty, fed when you are hungry. It is a place to be
renewed spiritually, physically, and emotionally through authentic rela­tionships
with regular people who are faithful and passionate about giving to others
what has been given to them; the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
