What to expect at a Sunday Meeting.

In Circle of Hope we create an environment where people can connect with God and act for redemption. Our Sunday Meetings may be the best place for you to experience that environment for the first time. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to join us on a Sunday night so we thought we’d tell you what to expect if it’s your first time.


Where is it?

3800 Marlton Pike

We meet Sundays on Marlton Pike in Pennsauken, just one block off of Rte. 130 (Crescent Blvd) in a space that once housed a volunteer fire company. We’re easily accessible from Rte. 38, Rte. 70, and Rte. 130, just minutes away from Collingswood, Camden, Gloucester City, Merchantville, Maple Shade, Cherry Hill, Westmont, and Haddonfield.

2309 N. Broad St.

We’re located near the cross streets of Broad & Dauphin, just north of Dauphin. Facing downtown, we’re on the left side of the street. We are in a building called the Manna Bible Institute. There is only one entrance into the building.

5720 Ridge Ave.

We meet in the Parish Hall of St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church, across the street from Roxborough Memorial Hospital. The building is half a block up from Walnut Lane/Shurs Lane. To find the Parish Hall, enter through the red double doors that face Ridge Ave. and go up one flight of steps.

What's it like?

It’s an opportunity to explore and express God’s love. Take advantage of what you can. There’s usually singing to get us together and our hearts moving toward God in worship. There’s a speech when the pastor or someone else engages us in ways we can do that exploring and expressing. Often there’s a chance to talk back with questions and stories. It’s all up for grabs.

Don’t feel like you have to do anything. Come as you are, be as you are, and see what God does.
