Vacation bible school

We've been having VBS in the Fair Oaks neighborhood every summer since 2010. It's a wild, fun time and is a highlight of the summer! We'd love to have you involved! Stay tuned for details about Summer 2022.

summer day camp

We've had a summer day camp the last two summers, and we've had a great time learning, growing, and having fun together, including taking some special field trips!

The Hope Center partners with Love INC to offer Faith and Finances. For more information please call (217) 442-5683. 

computer lab

We have a mobile computer lab that kids use during after school tutoring and that's available for adults to use for schoolwork, job applications, etc. We hope to offer adult computer classes in the future!
