Congregation President, Janice Peterson
 
Welcome!
 
I’m so glad you found our church! 
 
I love the church family that I have found here at Hope.  I look forward to Sunday mornings when we come together to worship God and hear Pastor Jim’s message.  We are a faith community that is bound together by love for God, love for each other and love for you.
 
In fact, I think Hope is so awesome I want to share the experience with you. 
 
At Hope we offer a wide variety of opportunities to worship and serve others.  There are two worship services (8:30 and 11:00 AM) every Sunday from September through May.  During the summer, the services are at 8:30 and 10:00 AM.  At 9:45 from September through May we have Sunday School for children age 3 to 8th grade, as well as High School and Adult Forums. 
 
We serve others through many programs during the year.  A highlight each year are the mission trips. There is an interfaith mission trip for adults as well mission trips for junior and senior high students.  We also participate in several one-day service projects during each year.  For the mission trips and service projects we travel to where the need exists and offer our help.
 
We join together to help those in need by packing food for Feed My Starving Children, we donate baskets filled with items to help families in need enjoy a Thanksgiving dinner and through Operation Christmas we brighten holidays for families by donating Christmas gifts.
 
We enjoy fellowship through events like our annual Pig Roast, Spaghetti Dinner and our Steak Dinner.  Not to mention our bowling league, women’s retreat, book club and a variety of small groups that meet for fellowship and study.
 
Thanks for checking us out!  If you have any questions, please call our church office at (847) 634-2070 or send us an email at HopeLutheran-elca@comcast.net
