Who We Are... Being People of Hope
We are people who have been claimed by God's grace in Jesus. As God's beloved, we are...
- ...Christians in the Lutheran tradition, who are gathered around God's Word and God's Table every Sunday in liturgical (ordered) worship
...receivers of God's free welcome to all at the font and at the table, and so we are led to share that welcome with everyone around us freely, too.
...broken and sinful people who are forgiven and made new daily by the sheer mercy of God--and we are reminded of that forgiveness each week.
- ...seeking to follow Jesus out into God's beloved world to serve, love, and share. Come along for the adventure!
- ... a community of believers, young and old, new and lifelong, families, singles, couples--all are welcome.
- ... a growing congregation, growing in trust and faith, in service and love, in mission and in ministry, and in membership--and we invite you to come and be a part of our family.
Hope is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, within the Northwestern Pennsylvania Synod, and a partner in a shared ministry with sister congregation New Life Lutheran Church outside of Marion Center, Pennsylvania. Hope is a participant in the Homer City Area Ministerium. All of these connections are a part of our most basic, most central identity--we are followers of Jesus, walking and stumbling after the risen Christ to bring the news of God's gracious Reign wherever we go, in words, in actions, and in love. We are Jesus people, held together by the Spirit, and made new each day.
