Recent months have seen the United Methodist Church in the news. At a specially called global conference in February, delegates narrowly approved a remarkably judgmental and punitive amendment to what was already an exclusionary denominational stance regarding our LGBTQ+ siblings in faith. This plan has been roundly rejected by United Methodists across the United States, and in our own Mountain Sky area (which includes Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Montana, and one congregation in Idaho). Spirit of Hope extends welcome and full inclusion to all who would like to be in relationship with us, as declared in our welcoming statement printed below.

If you would like to read a petition, passed by a 97% vote of approval at our regional gathering in June, outlining the stance of the Mountain Sky area of the United Methodist Church, this link — — will redirect you to the right page. Then come back and learn more about Spirit of Hope and our mission to be a vital outpost of faith, hope, and love in Englewood, on South Broadway, and beyond!



The Spirit of Hope United Methodist Church family, ignited by the unconditional love and grace of God, humbly and joyfully strives to be an inviting and inclusive community of faith.

We affirm the divine origins of the diversity found in creation and in God’s people of all ages, races, gender identities, sexual orientations, and physical or mental abilities.

We embrace all people regardless of marital, economic, educational, housing, religious, health, immigration, and any other status or distinction that may marginalize God’s children.

In short, we want all people to

BELONG — We aren’t supposed to be alone, and it is through meaningful, caring connections that we discover how we fit in the world.

BELIEVE —  Once we have a home base from which to strike out into the world, we can explore with confidence.

and BECOME — It is through these forays that we experience transformation into the people we were always intended to become.

If you have questions about us that can’t be answered by looking around this site, please don’t hesitate to give us a call, drop us an email, or stop by during office hours.

Thanks for taking the time to learn more about Spirit of Hope. We’d love to meet you in person sometime!
