About ELCA and History of Hope


worshipOur Mission: To be a living example of the love of Jesus Christ.

September 15, 1929, marked the first worship service at Hope Lutheran Church, and the official organization of the congregation occurred December 1, 1929, as “Hope Evangelical Lutheran Church.” In July 1940, the congregation broke ground for the facility at its home on the corner of Bancroft Street and Indian Road. Since then, Hope has evolved into the thriving, welcoming congregation it is today.

We belong to the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, a global church. The ELCA is a church of more than 4 million members who actively participate in God’s work in the world. We believe that we are freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor. With our hands, we do God’s work of restoring and reconciling communities in Jesus Christ’s name throughout the world. We are a church that belongs to Christ. We span all ages, cultures and races and bring to this church unique life experiences and perspectives. Seek answers to your questions and discover what God is calling you to in life.
