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.
