Have we ever needed a Christmas celebration more than we need it this year? With Covid causing fear and anxiety, most of us are craving the peace and joy that surrounds our Christmas season. This year, Hope’s Hometown Christmas will be especially touching as it speaks to all those things we long for during the holidays.

Looking for some Christmas fun for the whole family that you can do in the safety of your home and at a social distance? Take a break from the mall, stop hitting up Amazon Prime and tune into the funniest, happiest and most family-friendly show this side of the North Pole.

Don’t miss the Family Christmas Special, Dec. 20 at 7 p.m. on GetHope.tv.

Can kids be in the service?

Absolutely! The service is appropriate for all ages and the entire family is encouraged to attend together! Please note there will be no KidCity (our ministry for birth through 5th grade) during Hometown Christmas services. We are working toward opening these environments in January.

Why do I need tickets if you are not charging?

Excellent question! We use ticketing to make sure that everyone who attends Hometown Christmas has a memorable experience and that no service ends up overcrowded. We are being extra cautious this year with your safety in mind and are limiting ticket numbers to ensure proper social distancing is observed.

What kind of church is Hope?

We’re a non-denominational church. Our weekend services feature energetic music, relevant messages and something for everyone in the family.

Where should I park?

You are our guests and we want your experience to be positive! Our parking lot volunteers (we call them roadies) will help you once you arrive to determine where to park. Because ticketing is limited this year, we will not be utilizing shuttles or satellite parking lots.

What if someone in my group needs wheelchair-accessible seating?

We’ve got you covered! Wheelchair-accessible seating is available in designated areas during every service. Please check this option as needed when you reserve your tickets. Please email Firstimpressions@gethope.net for further details, if needed.

Will you have any refreshments available?

The safety of our guests is of utmost importance during this season of Covid-19. For this reason, we will not be serving free coffee or hot chocolate at Hometown Christmas services this year. We’re just as bummed as you are!

What safety precautions is Hope taking with regard to Covid-19?

Your safety is of utmost importance to us. We are taking several steps to promote the safety of our guests during this season of Covid-19. Hand sanitizing stations and social-distancing spots have been placed throughout the building. Guests will be seated every other row with multi-seat separation between parties. Ticketing allows us to limit capacity at each Hometown Christmas service and masks are required while in the building.

What if all services are sold out and I’m unable to get tickets?

Good news! If you aren’t able to get tickets this year due to limited capacity, Hometown Christmas services will be streamed online at gethope.tv during all Hometown Christmas service times on Thursday, December 24.
