Join Us for Worship!

Worship is an invitation to experience the life-giving Word of God through music and a message filled with Hope. Each week, hundreds of people come together throughout the Ames community to celebrate the power of God’s life-changing and everlasting love! We’re so excited to welcome you to one of our next worship services, pray with you, connect you with a small group or answer any questions you might have.

Your Children Can Get Involved Too!

Quality childcare and youth programming is available on Sunday mornings for children from infant through grade 5. Through dynamic teaching, worship and activities, our hope is to provide a safe and fun environment for kids of all ages to learn about Jesus and his love for them! 

Your Children Can

Serve at Hope Ames!

God is the wind in our sails when we serve, and serving others is one of the greatest blessings God offers us. We have a number of places where you can be the hands and feet of Jesus to our brothers and sisters in Christ!  

We believe you have gifts to share! 

  • Hospitality: Help us welcome all who come through our church doors by serving in a variety of hospitality roles.  
  • Worship Band: Share your musical abilities as a member of the worship band.  
  • Nursery and HopeKids: Share the love of Jesus with our youngest churchgoers!
