H.O.P.E. University Education Team

Hope Lutheran Church has always stressed that adult education is one of the most important ways for us to “Know Christ.” With that sound foundation, Hope is expanding our education program to a year-round program with the vision of: “Providing Educational Opportunities to Deepen Our Relationship with God,” with a mission to: “Spread the Good News of Jesus Christ and Equip (provide additional tools to) the members of Hope to be His Disciples.”

Our goal is to provide a broad learning experience to members and friends to grow in faith and knowledge of their Christian heritage. Classes will consist of instructor-led lectures, including presentation of material by DVD, group discussion and dialogue, and other forms of engagement. Most courses will be in person, and the majority of courses will take advantage of Zoom and Livestream platforms to engage the greatest number of participants.
