Worship Schedule 

Skandia–9:00 am                  First –9:00 am               Connection Center–11:30 am


We offer two traditional worship services every Sunday at 9:00 AM: one at our First campus (111 E. Ridge St.) and one at our Skandia campus (189 Krieger Dr. Skandia).  We follow the liturgy of the church, sing traditional hymns accompanied by the organ, and are lead in singing by our Sanctuary Choir. Come and worship together with us!

There is a new day in worship at Marquette Hope’s, Connection Center (927 W. Fair Ave) that begins at 11:30 AM, and we hope it might include you!

What is our New Day service like? We offer a more contemporary style which is popular all across the country. Praising God is the dominant theme. Music is provided by “Hearts on Fire”, our worship band.

It’s a simple service of singing, prayer, scripture and message; usually within 50-60 minutes. Multi-media is frequently used, with visual projection, film clips, chancel drama, sermon illustrations and whatever else we can manage.

Stay up to date on what’s going on at Marquette Hope!

From Community Meals, to music ministries, to family friendly events; Marquette Hope has an event and organization to fit everyone’s needs. Be sure to check our google calendar on our About page for the most up to date and detailed information about our upcoming events.
