It started with groups...

In the summer of 2021, we started Hope Community with a group of families with the vision for every person to experience real and eternal hope in Jesus. We started with Community Groups in June of 2021, where people opened up their homes to create environments for people to find, enjoy, and share hope in Jesus together.

We started the church with Community Groups.
We are a church of Community Groups. 

Snohomish, WA
Belle Chapel

We started weekly worship services in October 17, 2021 at the historic Belle Chapel in Snohomish, WA. We were able to celebrate the good news of Jesus together with every generation. This took an incredible team of people to set up and tear down on a weekly basis for worship, tech, kids, and greeters.

By God's grace, we started a church here and built a family of believers together.

Everett, WA
Merger with Valley View

In July of 2022, Hope Community merged with Valley View Bible Church to form one congregation with two churches, Hope Community. We moved from Snohomish to a permanent home in the Silver Lake area. We were not only blessed with a great property, but a number of amazing families that attended Valley View for decades.

We began worship services at our new location on July 31, 2022. We are eager to minister to this new area with the same vision: that every person would experience real and eternal hope in Jesus.
