We believe that the Christian life is best lived in community with other believers where we can challenge and encourage each other. At various intervals throughout the year, we offer a variety of small groups we call "Life Groups" as well as Bible studies that meet at Hope or in people's homes.
Current small groups include:
- Book Group
- Men's Group
- Women's Group
- Family Group
Lutheran Women's Missionary League (LWML) is a group of female servant leaders who gather monthly in fellowship and Bible study. They are charged with coordinating funeral receptions including serving and providing meals. They also put on the annual spring women’s retreat, Christmas bags for children, local and global missions thru collections in Mite Boxes. Meeting monthly Sept thru May, Thursday evenings or Sunday afternoon with lunch.
