WHAT TO EXPECT

Welcome to Living Hope Church of Manchester!

Living Hope Church is a spirit-led, contemporary, non-denominational church and a place that you can truly call home. We are located in Manchester, New Hampshire on South Willow Street.

Our Sunday Worship services begin at 10:00 A.M.  Feel free to come and worship with us in a spirit-filled and upbeat setting. Hear teachings and lessons that apply to real, everyday life challenges and struggles that we all go through.  Whether you have never been to a church service or have grown up in the church, we teach things that relate to people at all levels and places in their lives.  You just might be surprised that you have a good time while learning about God and how He can bring peace and fulfillment to your life.

 

WHAT IS A SERVICE LIKE?

 When you come to Living Hope, expect to be greeted by many friendly faces. Parking is available in the front and rear of the building.  We have handicap accessibility at the rear entrance and do our best to provide close parking for families with infants.  If you are planning to attend service and need any special assistance, please feel free to call ahead and let us know and we will be more than happy to be of service with any special accommodations.  Should you need any help with seating arrangements, our Ushers will be glad to assist you. 

Our Usher & Greeter Ministry is here to provide you with a warm and informative welcome; they are there to help you with any questions you may have about the service or the facility. A greeter will be at the door passing out our church bulletin that is a monthly brochure of all that is going on in our church. Inside your program you will find any handouts or special announcements that may be relative to the service. Take a look at this month’s program and see what’s going on at Living Hope.

Once you have made it to your seat, you can expect an atmosphere where the love of God can be freely expressed. We open our service with a welcome and lead into a time of Praise and Worship orchestrated by our Music Ministry. Our Praise and Worship family oriented and is the first 30 minutes of each service. The music is contemporary and ranges from upbeat to a more intimate atmosphere of worship.

 

After Praise and Worship, our Altar Ministry is available for anyone who would like one-on-one prayer for whatever is going on in your life, family, job or any other circumstance. The ministry and faith-filled prayers that we provide at the altar is in a safe and private setting.  At Living Hope, we believe that God desires to touch His people with His love and with His power. Because Jesus Christ possesses the same power to touch your life today, as He did when He walked the earth. We welcome you to come up and allow us to stand in agreement with you for God’s divine intervention as we minister to you regarding any challenges you may be facing.

After Altar Ministry children are dismissed to age appropriate rooms for their teaching time in the Word.  We have a Children’s and Youth Ministry that includes the age range of newborns to 18 years old.

Pastor Steve along with a variety of talented Ministers and guest speakers bring a timely message that will both challenge and encourage you in your spiritual walk with the Lord.  The average message is approximately 40 to 45 minutes in length.

We close each service with a time of prayer, both corporately as a church, and individually. The altar is open again for those who would like additional prayer ministry.

 

After service we have coffee, tea and light refreshments and we invite you to have some time to fellowship and meet someone new.  It’s also an opportunity to check out all that is going on at Living Hope.  More information on all of our upcoming events and ministries is always available on our monitors as well as in our bulletin.

 

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

We believe that you should come as you are. Some of us choose to wear a shirt and tie to services.  Others prefer jeans and t-shirts.  Others may come straight from their job in their work clothes. Our focus is not on our clothing, but on our God. Come as you are and worship the Lord!
