Living Hope's Future Building Project
CELEBRATING OUR PAST CHALLENGING OUR PRESENT CLAIMING OUR FUTURE
One generation shall praise Your works to another,
and shall declare Your mighty acts. Psalm 145:3
CELEBRATING OUR PAST
The church started in 1997 as a church plant in a Bucks County
barn near Dublin, PA. After a few weeks there, the church moved to Plumstead Christian School where we met for 16 years.
In December 2013, the church moved a few miles across town to the edge of Dublin, a community surrounded by new homes and neighborhoods. Living Hope purchased the empty Lutheran Church building and completely renovated it to open for Christmas that year. Living Hope has grown from 200 to nearly 500 attending each week since this move.
The church is known for its friendly and welcoming atmosphere, our upbeat and meaningful worship, Biblical and practical preaching, and high volunteer involvement. Also very important to our church is our connection to the community through the Dublin Food Pantry open on Fridays at our site, various community groups like Boy Scouts and ESL classes that meet here, our many town events and community groups that we partner with, and our outdoor presentation of the Nativity that hosts thousands of guests every other December.
CLAIMING OUR FUTURE
Psalm 145:4 states that “One generation will praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.” God has blessed our church over the past 90 years and we can truly “praise thy works” to the next generation. If we want to continue to declare His mighty acts in the future, we must expand our facilities. The need includes the cost of the first phase emphasizing the ministry areas for the Children, Students, Young Adults, and Adult fellowship areas. Together, let us make space, reach people, and change lives. Let us claim the future in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.
Connecting with God, One Another, and the World is our purpose here at Living Hope. Being disciples of Jesus Christ who disciples others for Jesus Christ, is our focus. Through our music and creative ministries, children and preschool ministries, youth ministries, adult ministries, mission trips and much, much more, God is working through Living Hope to build His kingdom.
CHALLENGING OUR PRESENT
God continues to bless us with consistent growth in every area of our ministry which reveals the limitations of our current facility. In response to these limitations, the board of Elders prayerfully sought God’s wisdom and direction. A Long Range Planning Team was formed and this team worked to identity specific areas needing improvement. As a result they secured an architect who strategically addressed the building needs that align with Living Hope’s mission, vision, and values. We are excited to present the plans for this renovation and expansion project!
