A Message from Pastor Bob

At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. The earth shook, and the rocks were split.  Matthew 27:51 In Matthew’s story of the crucifixion the temple curtain was torn in two, symbolizing God’s will for humankind was fully revealed in Jesus Christ. There are times on our…

HopeCare Happenings

This April has given HopeCare a real taste of Spring. From infants to school age, we have all been able to enjoy the April weather outside. I would like to thank all Hope Lutheran members and HopeCare families who helped with church property clean up and painting. We have received so many compliments about how…

Thank you, Volunteers!

Your energy, enthusiasm, and willingness to help with church cleanup and painting made a dramatic change!

Of course, the Mardi Gras celebrations which end on Shrove Tuesday provide a raucous break before the somber season of Lent begins the next day as we…

HopeCare Happenings

Here at HopeCare, we have been very excited for the mild weather to start the year. Our Preschool and PreK children have been able to play outside in the snow.
