Pastor Michael Schempf - October 31 - November 1 


We are very excited to welcome Pastor Michael and Karen Schempf as our guests for the weekend of October 31 through November 1. Pastor Schempf will preach at our 5:30 p.m. Saturday service and all three Sunday morning services. Our adopted Pastor will provide information regarding his missionary experiences in Uganda and Kenya, Africa, preparing pastors with Scripture so they have a solid knowledge of the Bible and can then teach and convey God's Word throughout the region. Pastor Schempf has been back in the United States during the COVID-19 pandemic. He will provide an update on his missionary work while in the U.S. and details regarding his January, 2021 return to Africa.

Pantry of Hope

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.

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.
