Come Celebrate with Us: 47 Years of Hope
July and August 2017
During the months of July and August 2017, Cathedral of Hope United Church of Christ will be celebrating our 47th anniversary. You are invited to celebrate with us by participating in any of the several exciting events that will be taking place throughout the summer. From a Big Bowling Blowout, to an Eclectic Art auction, and a screening of “A Very Sordid Wedding” with members of the cast to more parties than you can count, there is something for everyone!
For 47 years, Cathedral of Hope has been bringing hope to this community and the world. Throughout July and August, we will be celebrating our history and planning for our future by working to raise $175,000. By participating in any of these fun events, and by offering a gift of $47 (or increments thereof), you can help Cathedral of Hope continue to spread hope well into the future and beyond!
