Welcome to Hope Lutheran Church

You are loved.
You are enough.

Sundays at 9:30 AM

We offer in person and live-streamed services. Click below for more information.


The mission of Hope is to receive, celebrate, and proclaim the Christian message of love, compassion, forgiveness of sin, and eternal life among each other and the world.

We are a friendly, servant-hearted, family-oriented community building, and food-loving congregation!

You will always have a place at our table. At Hope, you are family.

At Hope, we strive to shine Christ's light and hope in a world that desperately needs to hear that you are loved and you are enough. Christ chooses you. You belong.

We are a church in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and in that, our mission is:

"Together in Jesus Christ we are freed by grace to live faithfully, witness boldly, and serve joyfully. Our values are grounded in faith, in our biblical and Lutheran confessional sources and love our God and neighbor."



Hope has been serving the community since 1958.

From our mobile food pantry, to home visits, to our Early Education Center, Hope offers a variety of ministries.



From regular Sunday worship, to Holy Days and special services, Hope offers a variety of worship services both in person and virtually.
