FAQ

What’s your Sunday worship like?

You’ll enjoy worshipping at Hope Lutheran Church.  We attempt to make our worship as "user friendly" as possible. Each week an outline of the service is printed in our service folder along with song page references.

 

Music is an important part of our worship. Through our singing of hymns and other songs we express our thanks to God for his wonderful salvation.

 

What should I wear?

Sometimes people wonder how they are expected to dress at a church they've never visited before. Since the Bible presents no dress code, aside from simple modesty, we don't make any rules either. Like most people, our members try to make their worship time at church a special time. This is often reflected in the way they dress.

 

However, on any given Sunday you may see running shoes and high heels, jeans and suits, open collars and ties. When a person dresses out of love for God, the choice of dress (casual or more formal) is acceptable to God . . . and us.

 

What about giving an offering?

You may wish at first to learn more about our ministry before bringing your offerings to God through our church. But you are welcome to participate as the Holy Spirit leads you to give.

"When will they take the offering?" "How will it be collected?" "How much am I expected to give?" "Do they want visitors to contribute too?" These are typical worries about church offerings.

 

Scripture teaches that our offerings to God should reflect our belief that everything we have is a gift of God. He does not compel us to give "a tithe" as he did the Old Testament believer. Instead St. Paul tells us that "God loves a cheerful giver" (2 Corinthians 9:7). In other words, don’t feel compelled by guilt or embarrassment to give an offering. We want all offerings to be made freely and with joy.

 

Like most Christians, our members bring offerings to God through their church. Since offerings are gifts of love for God, no one dictates what each person is to give.

 

We pass an offering plate after the sermon so that our worship may include bringing gifts to God. Offering envelopes are available to members to keep their gifts a private matter.

 

A child may bring the quarters and dimes his parents give him. Someone older may write a check. Both are remembering Jesus and giving their gift out of love for Him.
