Do you have weekly Eucharist (Holy Communion)?
 All are welcome, whatever your tradition, to come to the table of God’s meal of grace. Lutheran Church of Hope celebrates weekly Eucharist with every Sunday morning worship liturgy starting at 9am.

 

Are you liturgical in your worship style?
 Lutheran Church of Hope has a strong history of worship and follows the ancient patter of the "Ordo" (Gathering, Word, Meal, Sending) yet ring in diverse styles of music.

 

We celebrate the rich history of Lutheran worship through liturgy, hymns and new innovations. Each season of the church year (season such as Lent, Advent, Pentecost, etc...) we strive to find ways to celebrate the worship of the church in unique and appropriate ways. We have a high value on the sacraments and celebrate the Eucharist each week, and welcome all to the table. We look forward to having you join us for worship and discover how we are utilizing our traditions in innovative ways.

 

Will we find the sermons/messages relevant?
 Preaching is a point of pride for the community at Lutheran Church of Hope.  Sermons are biblically based, follow the Lutheran tradition of Law and Gospel and contain relevant teachings to assist our community in growing as disciples of Jesus Christ. We follow a lectionary of readings that take us throughout the Bible each year, often utilizing those readings to create sermon series focusing on specific issues in the lives of our families, church and community.

 

What kinds of music ministries and opportunities do you offer?
 The worship life of the congregation is greatly enhanced by a strong music ministry at Lutheran Church of Hope. Two adult choirs provide music throughout the school year including Chancel Choir and the contemporary band Spirit of Hope.  LCH also has a bell choir and will be starting a children’s tone chime choir in the next year.

 

What kinds of educational ministry do you provide?

LCH believes in cross-generational faith formation.  An adult bible study meets weekly from September to May on Wednesdays from 11am to 12noon.  Faith formation for our younger ones takes place primarily as part of Connecting Hope, starting at 6:30pm and going to 7:15pm.  On the first Sunday of the Month, LCH hosts GIFT (Growing in Faith Together), which is an intentional cross-generational activity for all ages centered around a Bible story or seasonal church theme.  Confirmation (for youth grades 7-9) meets on Wednesday evenings, and our high school youth group also meets on Wednesday evenings.

 

What kinds of help do you provide for parents?
 Lutheran Church of Hope is committed to helping our parents grow and thrive in this wonderful gift of Christian parentage. We offer a staffed nursery during the year and encourage parents to utilize this resource so they might worship. Additionally, we offer classes on Spiritual Gifts, and hope to begin offering classes and gatherings for parents in all stages of parenthood.

 

What kinds of help do you provide for Senior citizens?
