Life Together


As the body of Christ, we receive God's gifts together in the Divine Service, share His gifts with our community, and serve one another in love.

Sunday school

Every Sunday at 8:45am, New Hope children, youth, and adults gather to learn more about God's Word and the good news of Jesus.  During the 2017 - 2018 year, all classes are studying the promises of God in the Old Testament.

Senior Lunch


On the first Thursday of February, May, August, and November, senior citizens (age 55+) are invited to a free lunch and program at New Hope.  Past programs have featured a variety of speakers and musical groups.  On November 2, Dr Carl Fickenscher of Concordia Theological Seminary will speak on the significance of The Reformation for us today.

Youth Group


Faith Finders Youth Group is open to 6th to 12th grade youth.  They gather for the study of God's Word, fellowship, fun, and service.  Faith Finders meets every other Sunday evening at 6pm.

Mary Martha Guild


The Mary Martha Guild is a group of women who gather to hear God's Word, support the proclamation of the gospel around the world, and use their gifts to provide for the needs of others.  Join them on the fourth Tuesday of every month at 10am at New Hope for their regular meeting.


Choral music has been a rich part of New Hope's history since the choice first organized in 1981.  The choir sings God's Word in worship services throughout the year helping the entire congregation make a joyful noise unto the Lord.
