When are your experiences?
We have three identical experiences @ 6:00 pm on Saturday nights and 9:00 am and 10:30 am on Sunday mornings. The incredible experience features excellent programs for children on Saturday night and 10:30 am on Sunday mornings for ages birth through 6th grade. We recommend you arrive approximately 15 minutes before the experience so you won't feel rushed and can get some free coffee from the Common Grounds cafe!
How do I get to LIVING HOPE?
Living Hope’s facility is located on the corner of Werth Rd. and Brook St in Alpena, Mi 49707
What can I expect on my first visit?
From the moment you pull into the parking lot, you'll be made to feel at home. Our greeters will be waiting and ready to give directions or answer any questions you may have.
As you enter the main doors, please feel free to stop by to visit our Information Booth to get information about the church and upcoming events. From the Cafe, you can make your way directly into the sanctuary where our ushers will welcome you, hand you our information-filled weekend worship guide and direct you to your seat. Then sit back, relax, and enjoy the worship experience!
What is a weekend experience like?
Whether it is your first time at Living Hope or you've been attending for awhile, you never know what to expect during our 60 minute worship experience. From the moment you walk in the door, until the moment you leave, we are committed to a creative, compelling, and challenging presentation of God's truth.
Lead Pastor, Tad Martin communicates in a way that speaks to today's culture. Tad delivers a passionate, straight-forward and honest message focusing on how to apply biblical principles and Christ’s teachings to your daily life, in order to experience God’s incredible purpose for you. The phenomenal music celebration wraps the weekend message in a relevant way with an amazing diversity of artists and styles chosen for one purpose - to prepare your heart for what God has in store for you.
Where do I take my children?
You'll find first-class programs for your children, from birth through 5th grade. Living Hope’s Kids Church is located down the hall to the left as you enter the building. Simply register your children at check-in (in the hallway) into the appropriate area. Every child will have a church profile that will label personal belongings and mark special needs of any kind from food allergies to physical or mental handicaps. We are committed to providing the safest environment possible for your children. Elevate Kids is divided into two separate areas: Elevate Babies (birth – 3 yrs); and Elevate Kids (4 yrs - 5th grade). Each individual area is divided according to need and age appropriate development.
The entire Elevate Kids World is located in Left Wing at Living Hope for easy access and safety. We are committed to every child regardless of any developmental issues or physical or mental handicaps. Our Kids Staff is trained and is prepared to build lasting relationships and minister to your child no matter what personal challenges he/she might be facing. Your son or daughter has a place to belong at Elevate Kids no matter what!
Ultimately, your kids will experience church like never before, with the latest games, music and video, created to present God's truth in fun and innovative ways. They won't want to miss a single experience and will be begging for more!
