In 2022 Hope Lutheran Church will celebrate 150 years of ministry and fellowship!
The church council has asked some of the committee members of the 125th Anniversary Celebration to start the process of securing dates and discussing special events to be planned for the celebration. We will begin the planning, but will certainly welcome congregational input and will also need help in a variety of forms from all members of Hope Lutheran.
God’s blessing to our congregation as we begin this journey of planning and implementing this historic anniversary celebration of our church.

Fun ideas to share with pen pals:
