Worship

Traditional

Our Sunday 8:30 a.m. worship uses the heritage of the past to speak to us and invites us to use our voices and hearts to offer praise for all that God has done. Our worship uses the old hymns and images from scripture to remind us of the stories of faith, and to keep us grounded in God’s promises and word. Communion is served every week.

Contemporary

Our 10:30 a.m. service uses more contemporary images and music to reflect God’s love for us and our response of praise. The music is upbeat, visual images and sounds are incorporated into the service, and many individuals assist in leading worship. Many families with children attend and the children are a big part of this service. For the younger children, a nursery is provided. For the older children, there is a separate children’s church during the sermon time of the service. Communion is served every week during the winter season and twice a month during summer.

Communion

The Lord’s Supper is God’s meal and we are the invited guests. We believe in an open table which means you are invited to come and receive from God what God has promised. We believe that Jesus is truly present in the bread and wine even though the bread and wine does not actually change. Through our trust in Jesus’ words “This is my body and this is my blood”, we receive the forgiveness of our sin and new life in Jesus. We leave it up to the parents if their child(ren) should receive; if they choose not to, they are invited to come forward for the Pastor’s blessing.

Hope serves communion every Sunday at 8:30 a.m. worship and September through May at the  10:30 worship–and twice a month during the summer at the 10:30 a.m. worship service.

Baptism

Baptism is the individual entering into the life of Christ, through dying in the water and being raised by God to a new life. Baptism is also entering into the Christian community. We believe baptism is God’s work in us and not work we do to please or win God’s love. We do not baptize into Hope or even the Lutheran Church, but into the Christian community wherever it is found. We recognize all Christian baptism and welcome individuals from all backgrounds.

Seasonal

Summer Season

During this season of warm days and long nights we celebration Jesus in all areas of our lives.  We look for ways God reveals God’s self in our lives and in the world.  We invite families to take flat Jesus with them as they travel around this summer to remind each of us that Jesus goes with us in all places and time.
