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.
