Hope Lutheran Church and School

Welcome to Hope Lutheran Church and School.

Hope is a community of God’s people who have come to recognize the wonderful promises of Hope that we have in Jesus, and the good reasons we have for believing them. We pray that you would feel welcome among us and that you would begin to see the real promises of forgiveness, meaning, and eternal life that our Lord gives us for free, paid by the blood he shed on the cross. Join us as we boldly proclaim, in this oftentimes dark world, the One true God who gives us light and hope!
