City Hope Church

Murphysboro, Illinois


In August 2018, a group of like-minded individuals started Real Church with Lead Pastor Noah Fritsche. They had their first service in the Liberty Theater in Downtown Murphysboro. The first service was October 10th, 2018. By February 2019, Real Church purchased the Murphysboro American to restore and become their permanent home. Real Church had doubled in size by July and outgrew that space, so they had to sell the building to purchase a new home on South 13th Street.
They had their first service in their new home in December of 2019.
In March 2020, Covid-19 hit and all in-person gatherings were canceled. They
launched church online to reach people and saw significant growth through that! By the summer of 2020, services were finally in-person again and they launched a youth group that hosts students every Wednesday night.
Serving the community is important to City Hope Church. They held their first
annual Marriage Conference in February 2021 to reach out to married couples. They saw amazing growth at their Easter 2021 service held at Riverside Park where 300 people attended! They served 20 local organizations during Serve Day 2021 and added a new mural to their building. For kids activities, they hosted their first Summer Blast with over 75 children in attendance.
October 10th, 2021 was their third year celebration as a church. It was then that they changed their name to City Hope Church. They now had a mission statement: save the lost, bring them hope, and change the city. They implemented an annual Vision Offering which raised $34,000 in the first year and $60,000 in 2022. In November of 2023, their lead pastor resigned from Hope City Church, but they are hopeful moving forward to find the right person to lead their church and help fulfill their mission and vision!
