HopeNow is not just another daily Bible-Study program, but rather is a discussion between Gary and Pete, focusing on how Jesus and Scripture relate to literally every area of life…including all social, cultural and political issues facing the our community, the country and the church today. From the pandemic and rioting, to marriage, family life and business, Hope Now is here to highlight the fact that Christians have access to literally everything we need in order to know, love and serve God.
