Our Mission


Hope in Action

We are fond of saying we are a Concierge Worship Style, we will come to you or you can come to us. We worship at the Benjamin Harrison YMCA every Sunday at 9:30 am, Elmcroft of Fort Harrison Thursdays at 10:00 and Miller's Manor, Thursdays at 12:30. We are continually looking for people and places to serve, call us and let us assist you.

Find your inner power by Serving 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. 

Our mission is to help transform lives through the fullness of Christ's love. We work to do this by utilizing all our God given resources, talents, and skills to assist our neighbors to find strength and rest in Christ. We work with community partners to accomplish these goals and bring Christ into everything we do.

Christmas with Seniors

Christmas saw our congregation take our Christmas service to some of our members and participants that couldn't otherwise worship at Christmas with us or with anyone due to lack of transportation or opportunity. We decided to forego our Christmas worship at the YMCA and instead worship at both Elmcroft and Miller's senior living centers. Thank you to Gerry and to Ashleigh for all their support. 


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.
