Hope Lutheran Church has suspended all in-person ministries until further notice due to COVID-19 safety recommendations - click for details. With that said, we understand that serving others is very important so we've created ONLINE SOLUTIONS until we are able to meet in person once again -- safely!

Service Team facilitates a connection between what it means to serve others and advocate for social justice as an essential part of being a follower of Jesus. The team organizes numerous projects and events throughout the year and supports a wide variety of charitable organizations. Check out their flyer "What is Service Team and What do they DO?".

update - Bags of hope

Last January, February, and March, Hope members and friends donated washcloths, socks, toothbrushes and toothpaste, razors, and combs for a planned 6-month collection of items needed to create Bags of Hope for distribution to people in need in Southeast Michigan. With the church building closed, our collection stalled, and the items sat in Service Team storage benefitting no one. Recently Service Team decided to donate the collected items to a ministry currently active and reaching those in need in Detroit. Service Team members donated additional items and, with leadership from Kerrie Kelly and her family, packaged the items into care kits and delivered them to C4Urban Outreach. The sixty complete care kits in addition to many t-shirts, underwear, and toiletry items will be distributed on the streets of Detroit during C4Urban Outreach’s Sunday afternoon food distribution hours.
