Christmas at the Rio FB_ledger copy.png

Due to an overwhelming response of interest in our Christmas at the Rio event, we are excited to announce the addition of another service! Now you have two options: 3:30 PM or 5:00 PM.

Whether you already have a ticket or not, no worries, just come…and invite as many of your family members, friends, neighbors and co-workers as you’d like. This is a very special gathering that you won’t want to miss. The one hour service will include hot cider and cookies, a candle lighting, a brief message, Christmas music, live art, dance and readings from 18 different countries and languages! 

We will not be having our normal Sunday morning services at either of our campuses

The Rio Theatre is located at 1205 Soquel Ave in midtown Santa Cruz. Please arrive a few minutes early to allow for time to park and find your seat. There's parking next door at Big O Tires and Comerica Bank, and across the street behind the post office. 

Also, this will be a family service so instead of our normal Hope Kids program, children will be given a gift bag and are invited to join us in the theatre. There will be a cry room upstairs with a viewing window and a speaker streaming the program for nursing moms. 

Merry Christmas! 

Danny & the Hope Team
