HopeCare Happenings

March was a very active month for weather. The kids enjoyed playing outside in the warm sun, rain, and snow all month long. However, we are ready for spring to start so we can plant flowers and vegetables in our garden and play outside more often. The month of March features many awesome programs for…

The worst that can happen. It is a day burned into my memory. I was thirteen years old. It was one of those dismal gray days of late winter when the house is dark in the middle of the day. I remember wishing a light was on as I sat in the living room of…

Hope Care Happenings

As February has ended, we are excited to see the weather begin to warm up! After a month of no below zero temperatures, February featured many below zero and dangerous wind chill temperatures.

Ash Wednesday is, I believe, the only significant day in the church calendar that has not been commercialized. Only in recent years have greeting cards for Lent appeared. 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…

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.

Starting in January we at Hope Lutheran will welcome Corey Scott as our seminary intern. Vicar Corey will be with us for one year where…

A Message from Pastor Lynnae

Prayer. I’ve found myself saying much more often these days, “I’ll pray for you.” When I can’t go into the hospitals, I can’t visit the quarantined, I can’t wrap my arms around the grieving, I say “I’m praying for you.” It doesn’t seem like enough.

HopeCare Happenings

It is very hard to believe that we have already reached the month of November. The weather has shifted from warm to cool, and we are beginning to see some wet days at HopeCare. Last month, our Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten classes got to take field trips to the Apple Orchard and the Pumpkin Patch. They…
