Many members have utilized our Pantry of Hope, an on-site resource of perishable and non-perishable food items and hygiene products available at no charge to member families and friends. We have delivered Pantry items as well as medications and other essentials to a number of member homes. In fact, the Pantry has been so popular that we need to replenish stock on a number of items. 

As you are able, please support the Pantry with food item and hygiene product donations. If you prefer, financial donations (cash or checks) will also be accepted.  Please make the check out to Hope Lutheran Church with “Pantry Donation” listed on the memo line. Mail your Pantry financial donations to Hope Lutheran Church - Attention Deacon Bob Mengert, 260 Vincent Street, Fond du Lac, WI 54935. 

Contact Deacon Mengert at 922-5130 Ext. 215 or via e-mail; bmengert@lifeathope.org with any questions you may have. Thank you!

How You Can Help

Hope Lutheran has committed to raise $15,000 per year for the next five years in support of Pastor and Karen Schempf as they spread the Good Word throughout Africa. Visit Pastor Schempf's Africa Mission page to learn more. You can help support the mission by donating online.   

Thank you for your generous support through the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. I was called by the LCMS to serve as a Theological Educator in Africa. This past year I served at The Lutheran Theological  College Uganda in Maga Maga, Uganda and Neema Lutheran College in Matongo, Kenya. It was delightful to teach classes at these seminaries. Meeting students from over a dozen African nations has been very enriching. The students seek to further their understanding of the Bible and Lutheran doctrine. They want to return to their villages as well-equipped servants ready to teach, preach, evangelize, organize congregations, and serve their members. Building relationships with faculty and students has been a JOY!                                                             

We have returned to the U.S. during the COVID-19 pandemic. We were on the last plane out before they closed Nairobi. Only the Lord knows how/when this plague will pass. We will keep you updated through our email newsletter.

We thank you for partnering with us as together we seek to serve our Lord by equipping His people with a solid Law/Gospel foundation. They in turn will equip their people by sharing the good news of Jesus and His love in their own village, culture and language. We pray that this note finds you in good health.       

Rejoicing with you as we serve our risen Savior!
