Church maintains membership with the Alliance of Renewal Churches (ARC) and the Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ (LCMC).

One of the trips sponsored by the Hosanna! Church is its IMPACT Trip to Ecuador where individuals meet with orphans. Scheduled for October 22 through 29, this week-long trip gives people a chance to work alongside missionaries Denise and Oswaldo Pineiros and their orphan ministry. For approximately $2,600 through $2,900, individuals will share Bible stories, make crafts, and play games with the orphans. They also have an opportunity to travel to several orphanages. Those interested must be 12 and over with a parent or 17 and over without a parent.
