A Brief History of HOPE

A vision to open a new church in Claymont, DE named HOPE Community Church began in February of 2008 when Bishop Peggy Johnson visited Atonement Church. Bishop Johnson recognized the growth, the changes that were occurring within the church, and posed the question, "Have you ever thought about opening another church?" Actually, Pastor John Hornberger (the lead pastor at Atonement UMC), Amy Peters (assistant pastor of Atonement UMC and now campus pastor of HOPE), and Mark Peters (husband of Amy Peters) had thought about that possibility. So Mark responded, "Yes, we have." From that day forward, HOPE Community church grew to become a reality that is now four years old.

“Without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.” 
Hebrews 11:6
