Who We Are

Hope is a Christian church with roots in the Lutheran tradition. We hold the three ecumenical creeds and the Lutheran Confessions to be faithful expressions of God's truth revealed to us in the Bible. Hope is affiliated with the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. Just as we need food to nourish our bodies, we need food for our souls. God has given us his Word, which he tells us is living water. We gather together around this living water every Sunday morning at 9:00. During this hour, you and your children will hear a message of real hope for real life - a message from God's lips to your heart, so that you may always be sure of his forgiveness and love. You will have the opportunity to hear and participate in music with a meaningful message, prayer, and thanksgiving.
