What to expect @ Worship

First, we have three locations - one in Farmington Hills, MI and two in South Lyon, MI.


We have three worship services every Sunday. Scroll down to learn more about the different 'styles' of worship:

  • 8:00am - Traditional Lutheran Worship
  • 9:30am - Blended Worship (and Sunday School)
  • 11:00am - Acoustic Contemporary

Here is what else you can expect every Sunday @ Hope:

  • Coffee ... need we say more? (we ARE Lutheran after all)
  • A completely laid back "come as you are" atmosphere. Feel free to wear jeans, shorts or whatever...just wear something, everyone will appreciate it!
  • Great music in either a style you grew up experiencing in church OR something you recognize from the radio or iPod
  • A relevant message that actually applies to life in this digital, electronic, over-networked world we live in
  • Fun (and safe) environment for kids and youth to learn about Jesus
  • Normal people...yeah, we are just as normal as everyone else (whatever that means)
  • Child Care - safe, friendly, and fun for kids up to 5 yrs old
  • Communion at each service

At our first SOUTH LYON site:

We have one service at Abbey Park every Sunday:

  • 10:00am - Traditional Lutheran Worship

Here is what you can expect every Sunday Morning at Hope:

  • A true "come as you are" atmosphere ... wear whatever you want
  • Warm and welcoming community
  • Yep ... we meet in an Independant Senior Living Facility. Why? Because 'church' isn't about a location or a building. "Church" is about community and this is a warm, caring, friendly, open community ... give it a shot!
  • Normal people ... we are 'normal' in South Lyon as well (and we still don't know what that means)
  • Communion every week

At our second SOUTH LYON Site:

We have one service at Java House Cafe' every Sunday:

  • 7:00pm - Progressive Service

Here is what you can expect:

  • A completely laid back "come as you are" atmosphere ... we meet in a coffee shop, what else would you expect!
  • A service that is more discussion based
  • A relevant message, more dialog based, that actually applies to real life and issues that we all go through
  • Communion - our one traditional part of worship
  • Music - you gotta have music!
  • An all ages, fun, and safe environment to learn about Jesus -- everyone is welcome ... and we mean, everyone
  • Normal people ... yeah, we are just as normal as everyone else (whatever that means)

Traditional WOrship

Hope is a community that is built on Traditional Lutheran Worship. At Hope you will find traditional worship that keeps the integrity and traditions of worship that celebrate Lutheran values and rites. At this service you will experience liturgy from the 'cranberry book' (ELW), hymns accompanied by organ, robes, and Communion every week.


Hope's blended worship is an energetic and dynamic experience of contemporary music with elements of traditional worship (such as Communion every week) that keep the integrity of our church's traditions. At this service you will experience a mix of songs that you might hear on Christian radio (iPod, Pandora, Spotify) as well as some of the hymns you have grown up with. This service is experienced with guitars, drums, song leaders and a LOT of energy!
