The Hope Lutheran 150th Anniversary Committee is busy planning for Hope's 150th Celebration, which will be held on June 10th and 11th, 2022. Please mark your calendars and relay this message to all family, friends, and former members so we can come together to celebrate this historical weekend in our congregation.Soon there will be apparel available as well as other memorabilia with the 150th celebration logo.


We look forward to sharing more information soon through our monthly newsletter, bulletins, and on our Hope Lutheran Church website!


Celebration Being Planned

The Hope Lutheran 150th Anniversary will be held on June 11th and 12th, 2022, with a number of activities being planned.  The chosen theme is “Hope Is Our Anchor”, taken from Hebrews 6:19.

Your steering committee consists of Chairperson, Roberta Josephson; Secretary, Terri Myhre; Treasurer, Earl Skaar; and Scott Josephson, Gayle VanVooren, Sandy Tolk and Pastor Allen Campbell.  Many congregation members will also be needed as the celebration approaches.

Worship services are planned for June 11th in the evening with a social and burger meal before the service.  The Festival worship will be on Sunday the 12th at 10:00 am.  Former Pastors are being invited to attend and take part in the Festival.

Banners for the church proper have been made and the logo will appear on t-shirts and commemorative Christmas ornaments that will be for sale soon.

A pictorial directory of our church members is also being planned.  Brian Jeremiason will be taking photos and reviewing submitted photos for the directory.  A walk around offering will be taken to help with costs for the directory so they can be cost-free for our congregation.

Other events being worked on include a history of our church, a reunion choir, bulletin covers, publicity, etc.  Volunteers are certainly needed—contact any of the steering committee members.
