Living Hope Community Church

A loving community of faith in Metcalfe, Ontario, Canada

Who We Are

Founded in 2002, Living Hope Community CRC is comprised of a diverse group of individuals united by a common desire to share God’s love within our community. The majority of our members reside in the villages of Russell, Metcalfe or Embrun, Ontario, Canada.


Living Hope Community Church is a Christ-centred ministry that upholds the infallibility of the Bible which states that Jesus is the Son of God, died for our sins and is the only way to salvation. Believing that all things are accomplished through the power of the Holy Spirit, we are eager to do God's work in our community.

Along with the doctrines and creeds of the Christian Reformed Church we will prayerfully adhere to the following five purposes of the church:

Worship (to love God with all our heart)...

  • to build a relationship with God
  • to passionately desire God's love
  • to actively seek to please God
  • to reflect on the Word of God
  • to praise and adore God

Discipleship (to help people become more like Christ in their thoughts, feelings and actions)…

  • to equip and empower members to spread the word
  • to grow in true knowledge of Christ for the purpose of becoming like Him
  • to develop our gifts and talents
  • to nurture a growing faith in new believers

Ministry (to demonstrate God's love to others by meeting their needs and healing their wounds in the name of Jesus)…

  • to use each member's spiritual gifts and talents to build the body
  • to address the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of those around us

Fellowship (to provide a place of belonging)…

  • to envelope the lost into a loving, accepting body of believers
  • to encourage each other to become more Christ-like
  • to hold each other accountable for spiritual growth and conduct

Evangelism (to communicate God's love)…

  • to grow new churches through expansion
  • to actively reach out to the community with the love of God
  • to build relationships with non- believers


Worship at Living Hope is as diverse as the people. Some Sundays resemble a 'tradional' order of worship with a praise team at the front leading worship and a message from our pastor. Other Sundays see us beginning with signing and then breaking into small groups to discuss a particular topic. On the last Sunday of each month we employ a 'home church' model, where we, once again, break into smaller groups and meet in the homes of some of our members. Given the variety in our worship schedule, it is always best to check our Facebook page for the latest scheduling information.
