Good Hope Foundations Class

4 week Class

Our Good Hope Foundations Class is a 4 week introductory class which Pastor Mike put together to help people learn more about Good Hope, our culture, our heart, and our beliefs. It’s also necessary for anyone wanting to volunteer in the ministries of the church. It’s not a membership class, and there are no strings attached. The class is offered several times a year. Childcare is provided.
