We gather in worship, service and fellowship to love God and share of Jesus way for living. Hope Lutheran affirms a God that created ALL, recognizes Jesus love that welcomed ALL and celebrates a Spirit that is poured out for ALL. 
At Hope we share God’s love through action. We know that it is through service to the needy world that God’s love can be shared, not for some reward or future 
promise, but because we know that we are part of a fabric that is inter-connected and mutually dependant. When one hurts – we all hurt. When one celebrates – we all celebrate.
So if you are broken, bruised, battered or just bored – Hope is what you need. 

- Pastor Lynnae Sorensen

In the season of Easter (the six Sundays after Easter-Sunday) the church usually explores the resurrection appearances of Jesus. Those appearances alighted the early church to grow into the Christian church that we know today. It was not an easy path and the roads continued to be lined with crosses as the empire conspired to kill the spirit of the new way by martyring believers. John wrote his gospel somewhere around 90 CE to a community that was in the throes of early persecution. This season of Easter we will study the Gospel of John, which was written "That We May Believe" to remember the many ways the early church grew despite opposition and how we live into that long-ago history. This is a tricky dance that calls us to reject anti-Semitism and yet embrace Johns story of symbol and sign.
