Balcony of Hope The Balcony of Hope was dedicated on October 16, 2016. It is a beautiful original painting by Thomas Alexander that spans the length of our balcony and depicts many biblical events that exemplify the traits that Christians have possessed throughout history: Bravery, Trust, Fortitude, Humility, and Brotherhood. It is dedicated to the People of Hope in honor of the ways we minister to the members of the congregation and our neighborhood through the "quiet miracles" that we do everyday. These are simple things like a smile or kind word that makes a difference in the lives of others. Please visit us to see this beautiful work of art!
