Hope City Church Updates

Effective today, March 18, 2020, all Hope City Church campuses will be closed for Sunday worship, all in-person meetings and rehearsals until further notice.

During this time all ongoing updates regarding Hope City Church and COVID-19, can be found here. We are committed to the safety and health of our staff and church members, while ensuring that you all stay connected to Christ, our community and our church.  

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
Please visit the New York State Department of Health, New York City Health Department and the Office of the Brooklyn Borough President websites for further instructions on how to stay safe during this time.

Sunday Worship
Both our East New York and Spring Creek campuses will be closed for worship until further notice. We will continue Sunday worship at our regularly scheduled time through our live stream.

Here are three ways you can give:

  1. Mail: Make checks payable to Hope City Church or HCC and mail it to P.O. Box 131 Brooklyn, NY 11207
  2. Online: Through our new giving portal
  3. Phone: Text HCC to the number 28950

If you’re unsure of how to navigate our online giving portal, training is available with our Systems team. Please text GIVING to (718) 571-8081 to sign up for a training.

Corporate Fast
We are still maintaining our weekly corporate fast every Wednesday where we turn down our plates to connect with God — consuming only liquids throughout the day and eating only one meal after 5pm.

To stay connected with each other during these times of social distancing, we will be hosting a 10-minute corporate prayer twice every Wednesday at 12pm and at 5pm through Facebook live with Pastor Stevenson. If you do not have access to Facebook, you can join our corporate prayer by dialing (646) 558-8656, enter the meeting ID: 892 554 779 and then enter “#” for the participant ID.

H.O.P.E. Groups
Please look out for further details regarding new and extended groups for our H.O.P.E. Groups Winter Term. Our new groups will focus on minimizing fear, anxiety, stress and more.

All in-person events and meetings have been cancelled until further notice.

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God in Him will I trust.” (Psalms 91:1-2) 

While we are taking cautionary measures, we are putting our full trust and faith in God.
