A Christian church on Martha's Vineyard

" I have come as a light to shine in this dark world, so that all who put their trust in me will no longer remain in the dark."

(John 12:46)


Reaching UP

*All meetings are masked, spaced, and ventilated



We are happy to meet together every Sunday at 10 AM (usually out by 11:30) to see each other, worship God, and learn how to live better as Christians.

Our current theme is Footprints for Christian Living from the Book of Acts.


176 Katama Road in Edgartown and on Facebook Live



Thursdays at 7 PM at Bend-in-the-Road Beach, State Road, Edgartown

(look for our small, white sign on the beach). Bring a Bible, and a blanket or beach chair.

This is for newcomers and mature Christians.

All are welcome to this discussion-oriented study of the Scriptures

and how we can apply them to daily life.

*New theme is Following Jesus Jesus' Way

"Jesus didn't demand that people change first. He knew that if they just followed, if they just took a step in his direction, it would change them" (Andy Stanley)



to us!



Every Saturday morning we pray together at 8:45 

at the gazebo in beautiful Ocean Park, Oak Bluffs.

Operation Christmas Child

Part of Samaritan's Purse, this annual ministry easily and joyfully gathers and puts toys, necessities, and the gospel into the hands of needy children around the world. This year, Beacon of Hope was able to help them with 80 boxes! (that's Melissa V and Melinda D pictured).


About Beacon of Hope

 Beacon of Hope is a non-denominational Christian church on Martha's Vineyard. 

It was started in 2014 by a group of believers in Jesus Christ who were called to start

a new fellowship for Islanders and visitors alike.

After setting an excellent foundation,  Rev. Don Bradley retired as the lead pastor. 

Rev. Greg Bar returned to the Island in January of 2020 to pastor the church

(having ministered on M.V. previously from 1986 through 2004),

and Rev. John McCormick is our Associate Pastor. 

As a body of believers we are committed to following Jesus every day with integrity, loving our neighbors, caring for those in need, studying His word, worshipping and praying together, and growing in His grace and wisdom. Our Book is the Bible, our Lord is Jesus Christ, our spiritual family is everyone who is a Christian, and our neighbors are the world.

We recognize that we have not yet "arrived", but are on a journey

as disciples (students) of Jesus Christ,

and we invite you to join us.

We invite you to visit any one of our meetings, check us out on Facebook and contact us there, or by phone (774-310-3343) or email (beaconofhopechurchmv@gmail.com).

You may also email the pastor directly at beaconofhopepastormv@gmail.com.

Our meetings are also on YouTube (hopemv) and MVTV Sundays mornings at 11 (and mvtv.org).


"The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it."
