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.

An Invitation: Read The Bible In A Year
Dear friends,
    I invite you to join me as we Read the Bible in a Year in 2019.
Don’t be afraid – we have no rules, no tests and no punishment for skipping, forgetting or reading ahead! At the bottom of this email you will find a link to a Read the Bible in a Year program. On this link all you have to do is choose the bible version that you want to use (I chose New Revised Standard – like we read from every Sunday in worship) and then click on the reading for each day and it will direct you to the reading. No hunting through your bible, no page markers – just boom – it’s there!
     Every fourth Sunday of the month, after coffee hour, I will be in the new conference room to talk a few minutes about how your reading is going! Maybe you have questions or want to share of the inspiration that the reading are offering you. Maybe you just need to see those that are joining you in this new discipline.
     Please join me as we Read the Bible in a Year:

Renovation work on our organ began on Monday January 7th.  By Tuesday the 8th all the old piping had been removed as well as the keyboard and foot pedals.  The project is expected to last several weeks.  You can see some pictures from the project by clicking here.

Church Council Installed January 13th
Installation of 2019 Church Council Members (pictured l to r) Duane Lund, Pastor Lynnae Sorensen, Katie Studer, Bruce Serbus, Laura Miles and Mariah South. Not pictured are Loren Koepsell, Barb Lind and Jesse Rufener. At JAM the lesson was about the boy Jesus and the temple; we made “stained glass” and scrolls. We talked about our church and temples and why we call it our father’s house. We are always amazed by the knowledge our kiddos come with to each lesson! Maybe the same way the leaders of the temple were when the boy Jesus came to learn from them!   See Pictures of the day here.
