Women of Hope
The Women of Hope is Hope Lutheran’s organization committed to providing intentional ways for women to be involved in leadership, service, and study.
At Hope Lutheran, women are invited to actively participate in the work of the church through Circle or Bible Study groups and service projects in the community. An annual bazaar is held, with proceeds distributed among local, national, and international mission projects. There is a Christmas brunch with a Christmas program, food and a special offering that is distributed to a local Christmas mission project.
CIRCLE AND BIBLE STUDY
One circle and a Bible study meet monthly from September through May.
- LYDIA CIRCLE - 3rd Thursday at 7:00 p.m.
- GATHER BIBLE STUDY - 2nd Thursday at 1:30 p.m.
Every woman at Hope is invited to attend either or both groups. Most meetings are held in the church; however, it is recommended that you contact the church office to confirm the location.
The Bible Studies that are utilized are published in the Gather Magazine. You may subscribe to the magazine on the Women of the ELCA web site. There are also copies of the magazine in the church library for your use.
Prayerfully consider joining one of these groups. Everyone is welcome.
Mobilizing women to act boldly on their faith in Jesus Christ
As a community of women created in the image of God, called to discipleship in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, We commit ourselves to grow in faith, affirm our gifts, support one another in our callings, engage in ministry and action, and promote healing and wholeness in the church, the society, and the world.
Opportunities to serve on Mission Projects include: making prayer shawls for shut-ins or participating in the Lunch is Served Program. We also contribute to the Union Gospel Auxiliary (Lamplighters) through the collection of designated items for which they have expressed need.
Opportunities for serving at Hope: Choir, Handbells, Altar Guild, various committees, assisting in Teaching Sunday School/Bible School, leading Circle Bible Studies, or prayer chains.
Opportunities for Fellowship: Book Club, held on the 1st Tuesday each month, participating in adult group activities, making crafts and participating and serving at our annual Bazaar.
