We believe God changes lives, builds up faith, inspires hope and empowers with love. God’s power is to give you a new vision for life. It involves a deeper relationship with Christ and Growing in Community. His power works through you to change you for the better and impact the world around you.

If you are seeking to deepen your relationship with Christ, then you can plant deep roots here at Living Hope. We believe that at Living Hope, Christ tills the soil of your heart and cultivates you by taking out the weeds that drain you of life. Here God grows you by pouring waters of grace, planting the seed of His Word, and shining His love on you. As you grow here, you will be rooted in community, grow in glory and display God’s power in your life. Here at Living Hope we are all in the process of growing and we know we are all at different stages in that process, but we are all one family. We recognize that we  are all a garden together growing in different ways.

We invite you to belong to something greater than yourself, to believe in God and to be-loved by Christ and the Living Hope family. We are rooted in Fox Lake community with a vision to welcome all people from all walks of life who are thirsting for God in their lives! At Living Hope you will be loved and challenged to grow in your relationship with God and with others.

If you’re reading these words, then something brought you here to this point where you’re saying to yourself “Could this place be a good fit for me? Who is the pastor and what is he all about?”. Well, let me speak from the heart about my experience here. I believe you deserve that. We are all on different journeys, these journeys are our life stories. Living Hope Community Church is a place where God meets you in the midst of your story.




At Living Hope Community Church, we have something for everybody. Our ministries include fun get togethers and activities for men, women, young adults and children. Check out our ministry page or talk to one of our staff members for more information.


Small groups are a great place to get plugged in and build relationships while you grow in your relationship with Christ. We have a variety of small groups to choose from for every age group so you are sure to find one that fits your unique style and personality.


We offer a variety of Sunday School classes. Classes are divided into classroom instruction and praise and worship.  Both members & non-members are invited to attend. These are ‘come as you are’ classes. Childcare is provided for children preschool aged & younger.


Volunteering your time and talents to help serve is a great way to meet new friends, build community while you help make a difference  in our our church and in our community. There are plenty of volunteer opportunities available from tech team to 1st impression greeters.



At Living Hope we love and appreciate children of all ages! We seek to provide a safe, clean and friendly environment for your kids to learn, laugh, play, and build relationships with other kids while learning about Jesus.


Living Hope Community Church has a vibrant and energetic youth ministry that seeks to reach the students in and around our community. Youth group night includes games, fun, lessons, and small groups. We also have fun events throughout the year.


It is our hope that this ministry helps women grow in their knowledge of the word of God and their faith. We also hope that the women of Living Hope Community Church can grow relationships with and encourage each other and just plain have fun.


Men’s Ministry is an opportunity for men to connect with each other and grow in relationship with Jesus. Come to one of our get togethers for good worship, good fellowship and an opportunity to look into God’s Word in a comfortable, casual setting.
