The Great Spiritual Migration

Is there a better way to be Christian? Has the world changed how we relate to God and live a life of faith? Has the earth moved beneath our spiritual feet?   This is a small group style conversation based around the book "The Great Spiritual Migration" by Brian McLaren and led by Pastor Rob Zahn. JOIN US!!

Cost: Just buy the book (Amazon Link CLICK HERE)

the 95

What in the world is 'the 95'? (it doesn't mean that 95 people will be at the study...but that would certainly be nice) Think of it as an intro to what "Lutheran" means, and if you don't know what the significance of the number '95' happens to be, then this class is DEFINITELY for you)  This class will be a bit fluid as it will be based on YOUR questions surrounding being LUTHERAN. We will try to both get a general overview of Reformation History, Martin Luther, issues of the church of the day, and what Martin Luther believed as well as what the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America) might say today.

Join Pastor Rob and learn a bit about that title "LUTHERAN".

Gathering. Sharing. Listening. Loving. Being.

Dinners for Eight

Dinners for Eight are a way to develop new friendships and strengthen our life together in Christ. All adults are invited! Groups are mixed intentionally so new relationships can begin to grow. Groups decide together whether to meet at homes or restaurants.

We will begin a new round of groups after Easter--watch for sign-ups!

Each fall, Hope’s Fantasy Football League meets to draft players, set up teams, enjoy competition and camaraderie, and yes, enjoy a beer or two, if that’s your thing!
