I believe that the online community is what makes Rising Hope Ministries unique amongst the vast number of online churches. The structure of this community resembles Facebook, with similar features such as personalized profiles with profile pictures and cover photos, activity streams, hashtags, and so much more. Make new friends or introduce your friends to the community. One of the best parts is that the ministers of Rising Hope Ministries are also online interacting with the community.
Come in and get an encouraging word. Be inspired and empowered by the Word of God. Share your testimony with others in the community. Post pictures or videos and allow others to celebrate with you. Make new friends, join a discussion in the forum, or join a group – you might even want to create your own group. The possibilities are endless!
The purpose of the community is to provide a safe place for members to explore their faith and their relationship with God. As we go through this life, we may have questions and conflicting feelings towards God. This is the place to ask those questions or express those feelings – in a safe environment where you will not be judged, teased, or ridiculed. Truth be told, you are not the only one with these questions or feelings. This is a place where you can find the answers you seek with a group of people who are also seeking these answers, or find solace with a group of people who share your feelings.
It does not cost a thing to go to church, and it does not cost a thing to join Rising Hope Ministries Online Community! We operate off of voluntary donations. On our secure giving page, you may tithe or give a donation of any amount. Most services and programs are free; however, there are a few events and services that do require a small charge, but these are clearly marked. We want you to enjoy the online experience of Rising Hope Ministries without feeling like you have to pay for admission.
Rising Hope Ministries has invested in a lot of security to maintain your privacy. Any information that we collect stays within Rising Hope Ministries. We do not sell our list of members’ information. If any additional information is needed, a representative of Rising Hope Ministries will contact the member via his or her preferred contact method. Rising Hope Ministries will never call and ask for any credit card information or gift cards of any kind. Any and ALL donations will be given through Rising Hope Ministries’ payment gateways.
This is a safe place to be open and share whatever is on your mind. Still, we must caution you that although we do our best to keep all content contained within the community, there is a slight chance that some information may leak out. We are consistently looking for breaches in protocol and security. Since we are a private community, members can be banned from the community. We have real people making sure banned members do not return under a new name or email. We are also monitoring for cyberbully situations and will immediately ban any members caught bullying another member. The goal is to allow you to feel free to express yourself and your opinions.
