Vikings Sunday Parking

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 2022 this will be: September 25, October 9, October 30 and December 4:

First 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. Enter the ramp on 9th street and take a ticket to enter. If there is a worker, show them the parking voucher you received from the Hope hospitality volunteer and tell them you are with Hope. Park on the top level of the ramp.

When exiting the ramp, first put the ticket you took from the kiosk while entering the ramp followed by the parking voucher you received from Hope. There is a sign at the exit showing how to insert tickets, and there will be a Hope volunteer present to help you, if needed.

Please refer to this map for more information.

Second 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. Please carpool with someone if you can!

Handicap accessible parking is available in the east lot (parking lot next to church building on the corner of 7th st. & 11th ave.

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.

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.
