We love to see people follow their passion and organize to bring their dreams to fruition. We affirm them as mission teams and set them loose to inspire and lead the congregations.
Baby and Kids Playgroup
One day a week, caretakers and parents bring their babies and meet together at one of our two locations, South Broad or West Tulpehocken. Playgroup is a place where we open the doors for parents and young children to experience a warm and inviting space to hang out with other parents and kids in the neighborhood.
Circle of Hope Audio Art
The Circle of Hope Audio Art uses a missional process of recording and distributing worship music as a tool for training, edification, and getting Circle of Hope into new places. They are celebrating all the creativity around us and are responding to a felt need for new worship material that is creative, theologically sound, and not commercial.
Circle Performing Arts Alliance
Circle Performing Arts Alliance is mission team of Circle of Hope composed of theatre artists and advocates of the arts. Historically, the Arts and the Church have often been at odds with one another. As artists and Christians, we desire to bridge that gap and help promote healing in our communities through our faith and artistic talents
Circle Pride is a mission team at Circle of Hope made up of queer folks and allies. Our goal is to connect with the LGBTQ+ community in Philadelphia in order to both grow the church in its inclusion of marginalized people, and to be an evident and queer-affirming presence in Philadelphia. We want to provide an inviting space for LGBTQ+ people who seek to explore their spirituality while also feeling fully affirmed and accepted in their identities. Sign up for our Circle Pride listserv.
Circle of Hope Gallery
On the First Friday of the month Philadelphia comes alive again with art. Galleries, sidewalks, and other active spaces feature artists with some snacks to the public. Check it out on Facebook.
The Prayer Team
The purpose of our prayer team will be to strengthen the prayer life of Circle of Hope as we seek to embody Christ in this region. It addresses the need for spiritual growth and development of those connected to our work, and our need to relate to God upon whom we depend for success in our efforts.
