Why the Y?

Why the Y?

The mission of the YMCA of York County is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all. They exist to develop and practice the principles of faith, hope, love, honesty, respect, and responsibility. They focus on fulfilling this mission in the areas of Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility. To find out more about their mission, vision, and programs, visit the YMCA online.

While our connection with the Y started as nothing more than a room to rent, we soon realized that there was huge potential for a strategic partnership to serve the community. Over the years, we have worked together on youth outreaches, veteran’s support, holiday events, and service projects.  We are grateful for the many people who have come to Living Hope over the years because of our connection to the Y.

After many years of meeting in the old gym, the church invested in their gymnasium expansion so that it could accommodate our Sunday morning needs.  In 2020, we moved into our new worship center complete with a stage, dedicated storage, and a full audio, visual, and lighting system!

Why the Y?  Well, we hope the answer is that God has led us here!  We look forward to many years of working together to serve the community.
