We exist to honor God by helping as many people as possible become fully-devoted followers of Jesus Christ. With this in mind, the mission needs to be funded. Funds are not the point of church ministry, but funds are needed to facilitate church ministry. Specificially, additional finances are needd to preserve our two historic buildings and sustain ministry momentum without distraction or delay for the next season. God is moving!

Regular Sunday Parking

We are located in downtown Minneapolis. Our hospitality team will direct you where to park when you arrive. Additionally, signs with parking directions will be posted. Please refer to this map for regular Sunday Parking. In addition to our parking lots, many of the metered streets surrounding Hope are free on Sundays. Please refer to this map to find free street parking on Sundays.

Vikings Game Sundays

Due to our proximity to the U.S. Bank Stadium, during large events we also alter our parking scheme. On Sunday’s when the Minnesota Vikings play at home we have special event parking for both services. For fall of 2023 this will be: September 10, September 24, October 8 and November 12.

1st Service (8:30 AM) – the parking lot next to our building on 7th street is not available, when you arrive pull up to the parking lot as usual, and a hospitality volunteer will give you a parking voucher for a ramp a few blocks away. Please refer to this map for more information.

2nd Service (10:30 AM) – the parking lot next to our building on 7th street is not available, and we do not have access to a ramp. Please refer to this map for more information & carpool with someone if you can! 

Handicap Accessible Parking is available in the East lot (parking lot next to church building on corner of 7th and 11th). 

What to Expect

A typical service at Hope Community Church – Downtown consists of worship through song, the reading of Scripture, a message, and communion. It lasts about 75 minutes. We welcome people to participate in whatever way they feel comfortable. In other words, you are perfectly fine just sitting and observing.

We invite you to come as you are! Our culture is very-laid back, people tend to dress casually. After service, we invite you downstairs for coffee, treats & a time to hangout & meet others. We hope you can make it!

Our sanctuary is wheelchair accessible. There is an elevator available just inside the 11th Ave entrance.

Opportunities for Kids

Sunday School is available for Preschool – 5th Grade during the 8:30 service. Head down the stairs to the Hope Kids Corner to get your child checked in. We also have Nursery available during both the 8:30 & 10:30 services. Nursery check-in is located on the 3rd floor, as well as two restless child areas and a restroom for your convenience.

Current Series

In chapters 4-8 of Romans, Paul answers the question of “How do we live then?” In this, Paul does not leave the Good News behind but rather draws out its implications for the Church. This gospel now fills our lives with hope, freedom, assurance, and the Holy Spirit. May God continue to transform us individually and collectively as we encounter him through his Word and Gospel!

Senior Associate & Lead Pastor of Downtown

When I first showed up at Hope Community Church, I hardly knew anything about God or the church. Since that time, this church has helped me learn more about the depths of God’s love and the necessity of being in community. If you feel alone or lost or are struggling with questions about faith and life, I hope that you’ll consider making Hope Community your church home. Our desire is that you’ll be able to hear clearly the hope God offers through Christ and find connection for this journey.
