In order to celebrate this momentous occasion, we’ll be hosting a Lock-in for “rising” 5-6 graders only (aka current 4-5 graders). They’ll get to eat pizza, play hide-and-go-seek in the dark, play laser tag, and make tons of new friends! Bring a sleeping bag, pillow, change of clothes, and a friend! Register here!

Every Tuesday during the summer (other than 6/18 and 7/2) all rising 5-6 graders will gather together to have some fun and get to know each other.  We’ll do something different every week: Dairy Depot runs, water fights, floor hockey and more! You won’t want to miss it.

The Confirmation Program at Hope

Confirmation is a time in a young person's faith life when they confirm the promise made at their baptism. Hope's program is two years during 5 & 6 grades. However, each year we have 7-9 graders who connect to Hope and go through the program as well. Students focus on a Lutheran understanding of the Bible and use the Catechism as a guide.  

Confirmation is taking a break for the summer and return in August, 2019. Watch the bulletin and mail for the fall start. Want to get connected to Hope's Confirmation program, contact DCE Steve McCarthy at
