Our Vision

We are the church of the warm heart:
Our vision is to FLOW in the grace of Christ Jesus through
Faith, Love, Outreach and Worship.
With these four ideals and commands of Jesus we go forth to further the Kingdom of God.

Adult Education with Pastor Diana

Scenic Hike to Glen Alpine Falls
We will meet at 3 PM on Sunday, July 30 at Fallen Leaf Chapel (near the Fallen Leaf Firehouse) for a short hike up the road to Glen Alpine Falls. (Click here for a satellite view.) After the hike we will proceed to Pope Beach for Beach Fellowship.

"Hope at Pope" (Beach Fellowship)
All are invited to gather at Pope Beach for fellowship on Sunday, July 30 (weather permitting) from 4 PM until the sun disappears behind the mountains. Bring a picnic supper and something to share to Pope Beach about halfway down the second parking area. You will find the Hope Lutheran gathering on the adjacent beach. We plan to make this a weekly event throughout the Summer months until late September (except for July 2 and September 3).

Blue Bucket Sunday
Sunday July 30 is Blue Bucket Sunday. Please bring your desperately needed gifts of non-perishable food for donation to Christmas Cheer. Always welcome are food, toiletries, dry dog and pet food, new socks and underwear. Clean, gently worn clothes can also be donated to Christmas Cheer. Let's fill'er up!!

Lutheran Movie Night
We will show the movie, "Luther," on Wednesday August 2, 6 PM in the sanctuary at church. Following the movie there will be a hot dog supper and a discussion of the movie in the Fireside Room.

Talents of Hope
Volunteers are needed for Talents of Hope. If you have a special talent or hobby you would like to share with other members of the congregation, here's a perfect opportunity. Some of the talents and hobbies we've shared in the past are chocolate roses, hot tamales, artwork depicting The Lord's Supper, and trolleys. You can see the wide variety of passions we have, and we would love to hear yours! Please contact Arlene or Julia to get started.
