Weekly Service Celebrates Community and Hope

The words community and hope carry positive connotations.  When you put the two words together, the message is even more powerful. So the name Community of Hope is appropriate for a service that brings people from all walks of life together every Sunday afternoon to celebrate a unity that our Creator wished for all humanity.

The inaugural Community of Hope service is scheduled for this Sunday, January, 29, at 1:00 p.m. on the south lawn of Central United Methodist Church, 201 University Blvd. NE.  This is one of the churches in Albuquerque that reaches out in various way to the local homeless community.

"The intent of this service is to bring together people who are housed and unhoused, churched and unchurched. All are welcome," said Pastor Greg Henneman. "We would like to make this an ecumenical and community event."

There are ample opportunities for the community to become involved in this worship experience, such as serving food, helping with music, or simply by being present. For more information,please contact Pastor Greg at 505-243-7834 or
