Welcome to Hope!

Thanks for checking out Hope Lutheran Church where ministry is about being authentic and relevant while keeping our focus on serving God’s creation.

We welcome everyone. That means–every- single-person! We’re not looking to change anyone but rather offer a safe space to take off our masks and get real with one another and God. We are here to have soul conversations about things that really matter daily and where God exists in it all.

We’re experiencing God right here and calling others to do the same.

Upcoming Service This Week


A grief support group for people grieving the death of a loved one is starting on Wednesday, October 4.
Grief is natural, but we often struggle with questions such as “Why do I always feel sad? People tell me I should be done grieving, but I still am. Am I normal? I’m so angry! Why is God doing this to me?” These are natural questions and the feelings that go along with them.
GriefShare is a 13-week faith-based seminar and support group for people grieving the death of someone close to them. It’s a place to be around people who understand your feelings. You will learn valuable information about recovering from your grief and renewing your hope for the future.
You are welcome to begin attending the group at any point. Each session is “self-contained,” so you can join anytime.
There is no cost to join.
At GriefShare, you’ll watch a weekly video with counsel, insights from respected grief experts, and relatable personal stories—followed by a time of sharing and support. You don’t have to share if you don’t want to.
Session topics include what’s normal in grief, how to handle difficult emotions, and what to do with regrets, questions, and worries.
There are two group opportunities: Afternoons, 2:00-3:30, and evenings, 7:00-8:30. Please join us at Hope Lutheran Church at 6201 Coventry Way in Clinton, one block west of Branch Ave.
