Happy 75th Anniversary!

January 15th, 2022 marks the 75th Anniversary of Hope Lutheran Church. Our beloved church was formally organized on this date in 1947. The first worship service was conducted February, 23rd 1947 on 12th Street and Greenwood. We have had six senior pastors over our 75-year history.

Growth resulted in multiple expansions over the years. The original church building was completed and dedicated April 23, 1950. The Christian Education building was designed and built in 1962. Ground breaking for our current house of worship took place March 12, 1967 with the dedication taking place January 28, 1968.

An expansion of the narthex and remodeling of the fellowship hall, classrooms and installation of new lighting was dedicated on October 27, 2002. The newly renovated sanctuary was dedicated December 19, 2021.

Today, our congregation consists of six hundred families. Hope Lutheran Church is a member of The Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod.

Board of Outreach Donates Bed Sheets to Children's Charity 

All children deserve a safe, comfortable place to lay their heads. Across the US, too many children go without a bed‚ÄĒor even a pillow‚ÄĒto sleep on. These children end up sleeping on couches, blankets, and even floors. This can affect their happiness and health.

Hope's Board of Outreach recently purchased and donated twenty-five twin sheet sets to the Fond du Lac Chapter of Sleep in Heavenly Peace; a group of volunteers dedicated to building, assembling, and delivering top-notch bunk beds to children and families in need. The sheets will be used on new beds for children in need throughout Fond du lac and the surrounding communities. 

Sleep in Heavenly Peace had its start like many other charities, in a garage. It was Christmas time, a time of joy and happiness, a time of giving and love, but also a time of bitter, wintry weather. A project, which was started with the build of one bed for a single family developed into something a whole lot more. With wood left over from the first bunk, another idea was created. ‚ÄúWho else could benefit from this bunk‚ÄĚ?

A simple post on Facebook sparked an unexpected response. What was thought would be a litter of requests from needy families, turned into a litany of local people eager to help and volunteer. The generosity of these volunteers was so surprising that it was no longer a search for one who needed a bed, but a question of how many beds could be provided. 

Sleep in Heavenly Peace is a national  501(c)3 non-profit organization. Visit their website at www.shpbeds.org for additional information. You may contact the Fond du Lac Chapter by calling 844.432.2337 ext. 5571.
