Women of Hope Summer Luncheon

On Saturday, July 29, the Women of Hope Lutheran Church will be honored to have Rev. Dr. Sarah Cordray lead us in two study sessions – A Gospel of the Small: Transforming Our Life Together Matthew 13: 31-32 The focus of the sessions will be 1) Be who you are A Child of God and a Community in Christ, 2) Use what you have-Ears for listening and a voice for sharing, 3) Do what matters for Jesus’ sake-connecting one small conversation at a time.

Sarah is fresh from completing her Doctor of Ministry! Pastor Sarah was our youth director when Pastor Bentz was our senior pastor, and though she had a heart for youth, she felt God was calling her to ordained ministry. She left Hope to attend seminary and now serves as senior pastor at Luther Memorial Church in Syracuse, Nebraska.

This rare opportunity to spend time with Pastor Sarah begins at 10:00 am and will conclude at 1:30 pm. Please plan to join us as we welcome Pastor Sarah back to Hope. It will be a time to grow in our faith and to deepen our relationships with each other. Please bring a salad for the potluck. If you are feeling adventurous, why not try a recipe from the Hope Cookbook?

Please sign up in the church office or look for the sign-up sheet in an upcoming bulletin.
It will be a lovely way to keep cool on a hot Saturday in July!

Friendship Club Luncheon

Friendship Club has been happening for approximately 25 years.  The purpose is to provide a social gathering for our senior citizens, not just Hope members.  A great lunch is provided for a nominal fee of $5.00 and a short program is presented.  It is an excellent opportunity to invite friends to come and get better acquainted with fellow members. On average, there are about 75 people who come and enjoy the delicious meal and program. We usually meet on the 4th Thursday at 12 noon (doors open at 11:30) except in November and December, when we meet on the 3rd Thursday. We do not meet in June, July, or August. We usually are finished by 1:30 p.m.
