There are many wonderful churches in Greensboro. We’re thankful that you’re considering a visit to Hope Chapel and hope that the following details will help you feel comfortable and know what to expect. We look foward to meeting you!
Finding Us & Parking
We are located at 1825 Spring Garden St, up the hill behind The Blind Tiger. Visitor parking is available near the main glass-door entrance. Just look for the green signs. Additional parking is available in the large gravel lot up the hill past the playground.
When you enter the building, you’ll be greeted by someone at the door and handed a worship guide (more details on our worship service below). Directly in front of you is a visitor table where we have a gift bag for you with some details about the church and a few goodies. Be sure to get some coffee/tea and something to eat on the other side of the lobby. If you are interested in visiting a community group, there is info about those on the wall beside the coffee bar. If you have young children, you may take them downstairs to our nursery or preschool rooms. The staircase is at the back of the sanctuary, beside the restrooms.
Kids of all ages are encouraged to participate in worship as fully as they can. We do offer childcare for the duration of the worship service for children 0-24 months and a preschool ministry for children who are 2-5 years old. Children in grades K-5 are dismissed midway through the worship service for age-appropriate classes. Using the Gospel Project curriculum, our teachers lead their classes through engaging and comprehensive Biblical teaching and discussion.
We believe worship is an essential part of human flourishing. Our order-of-worship, or liturgy (which means “the work of the people”), takes us through an ancient narrative journey. It is a still-unfolding story of God’s rescue and restoration of everything. Using songs, prayers, Scripture readings, teaching, communion, and other elements, we experience and celebrate together the gospel – the “good news” of Jesus Christ.
Feel free to participate as much or as little as you would like. In our worship guide, we provide some explanations of the different parts of the liturgy, as well as words for all the prayers and songs. We hope those will be helpful to you as you experience a (perhaps) unfamiliar order of worship.
We seek to incorporate music from a variety of times and traditions, both modern and ancient. This reminds us that the community with whom we worship is both large and diverse. We join our voices with all those throughout the ages and around the world who worship Jesus as Lord.
