Find your inner power by helping others


Hope Church @ the YMCA is demonstrating a new model of ministry to the whole person as they intentionally integrate Christian health in body, mind and Spirit. Leaving their building and lands of the past 50 years behind and making the community at the YMCA, the City of Lawrence and surrounding Indianapolis its target, we are utilizing all of our resources to help our participants become healthy, vibrant, and transformed members of the body of Christ. 


Working with our members to become Healthy in Body, Mind and Spirit

We love to help people find how their lives fit into the whole. Everyone has gifts and talents and our desire it not to force you into our mold but to help you find your unique place in God's Kingdom and the purposes for which He created you. If we don't have your ministry yet, we will help you develop it within the church.

Adopt a Fire House - HOPE/YMCA Day of Service

Over a dozen members of Hope Church and the YMCA Staff came together in September to spruce up Station 40 for the fine men and women who protect our city. We spent the day repairing walls, painting, cleaning, mopping floors, and washing walls. Later other friends of HOPE Cleaned carpets and waxed the floors. Work really brought us all together for the common good.
