Distinctive Hope: Rope of Hope

Faith and community find expression in many ways at Hope, not least of all together as students journey alongside one another and faculty and staff as they grow into a fuller understanding of what they believe and how it will guide their lives. At the school year’s final Gathering worship service each April, the connection—to one another, to a faith tradition that spans millennia—is symbolized by the “Rope of Hope,” a tangible reminder to the seniors whose time at the college will soon end of learning and ties that will endure long after graduation.
