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 Aonement 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 three years old.
