Ministries

It's busy around Hope Lutheran Church! While many of our community's activities take place on our campus, we strive for equipping Christians to serve beyond our campus.

 

We prepare the Saturday evening meal on the first Saturday of the month for Path of Life Ministries at their single community shelter and family shelter.  This is a rewarding and humbling experience of living our calling as servants.

We have also particpated in the ELCA's national service day: God's Work. Our Hands. in partnership with Lutheran Social Services of Southern California and Central City Lutheran Mission, two Lutheran connected social service agencies in the Inland Empire.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And, of course, thBells DSC 8483 300ere are the ministries that happen on our campus: music, worship and education.  In music, there is the bell choir, and always opportunities to share one's special musical gifts.  Worship requires people both "on stage" and "off stage" to make it work, flow and--above all--be meaningful. 

We have several educational programs going: a weekly Bible study (which also is a gathering for breakfast) during which we examine the next Sunday's appointed texts; Adult Forum follows worship services running essentially from September to mid-June, often this is also a Bible study in which we go through either a book of the Bible, or select a certain topic to explore; and Sunday school is provided during worship for children.
