Missions - Local & Trips

The people of Hope Lutheran Church are committed to making a positive, joyful, caring impact on the community around us.

As Jesus Christ has blessed our lives in countless ways, we seek to be a blessing to others, in turn. Hope's mission statement states it this way: "The people of Hope Lutheran Church proclaim and live the Word and love of Christ."  As a church, we are outward-focused in many ways. We believe that Christ's word and love has made a profound impact on our lives, and we are excited to be the hands and feet of Jesus in our community. You are welcome to join in any of the following seventeen local mission and mission trip opportunities!
