WOMEN'S MINISTRY
All women of Hope are counted as Women of the churchwide Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (WELCA).

At Hope Lutheran all women are invited to actively participate in the work of the church through general WELCA meetings, Circle groups and service projects in the community. WELCA sponsors an annual bazaar with proceeds distributed among local, national, and international mission projects...

The four general meetings during the year include an educational program and an annual Thank Offering Service. This special offering is made to the churchwide WELCA. In addition, WELCA and the Adult Activities group sponsor a Christmas brunch with a Christmas program, food and a special offering that is distributed to a local Christmas mission project.
