Ways to get involved
Frequently Asked Questions
What are your services like?
On Sunday mornings at Hope, we take time away from our busy lives to gather around God’s Word. In every service, we hear the two main messages of the Bible: that we have sinned and deserve punishment from God, but that He forgives our sins in Christ out of his never-ending love.
How long are services?
Services at Hope are usually about an hour, but no longer than 75 minutes.
What is your worship style?
At Hope, our worship is a modern take on historical worship practices. Every Sunday we follow of pattern of worship. We sing songs, speak responses from God’s Word, hear lessons from the Bible, and have about a 20 minute sermon based on one of those lessons.
Our goal is for our music to be accessible for everyone. We have a worship team, but their goal is to lead participation, not to give a performance. We’ll always make sure the music is either on the screen or printed for you, and we’ll do our best to teach new songs when we sing them in worship.
Is childcare available?
We believe that it is important for children to be a part of worship. During every service we will offer a Children’s Bible Story so that children can learn about Jesus in an age-appropriate way. We welcome kids of all ages in worship, and we won’t be bothered if and when they make noise. That being said, we understand that parents may be able to focus better without their children. For that reason, we offer a staffed nursery, starting at the sermon and running through the end of the service.
What does your church believe?
We are a Christian church. We believe that every person was born into this world as a sinner, completely unable to save themselves. But God solved that problem of sin by sending his son Jesus into the world to live the perfect life that we could not, die on the cross to pay for our sins, and rise from the dead to give eternal life in heaven to all who believe.

WHERE DO I PARK FOR SERVICES?
There are two parking lots available:
The first lot can be accessed via Edwards Street. Park in front of Holler Brewing Co. and walk down the hallway to find LoveDance. This parking lot has a ramp for those who need wheelchair access.
The second lot can be accessed via Winter Street. From Winter Street, turn onto Henderson Street, and look for the blue and white Hope Lutheran banner.
