pastor's message

This summer at Hope we have a number of opportunities to welcome others, enrich each other’s lives, and send ourselves out to serve our community. I want to commend a few upcoming events and celebrations you might plug into.

Scholar In Residence, Cari Lee Skogberg Eastman

Join for our 2nd Annual Scholar in Residence held during the final week of July. We welcome Cari Skogberg Eastman, who will present 2 public forums centering on the Immigration debate. Cari is a researcher, writer and educator focusing on public understanding of border and immigration issues, particularly involving the US-Mexico border. She is the author of Immigration: Examining the Facts (ABC-CLIO, 2017) and Shaping the Immigration Debate: Contending Civil Societies on the U.S.-Mexico Border (First Forum Press, 2012). She has served on the board for the ELCA Division of Global Mission, and her passion is to help others better understand the issues surrounding immigration. This program is sponsored and hosted by Hope’s Endowment. The schedule for the week includes:

A/V Technology Upgrade

I invite you to check out the article in this month’s newsletter regarding the A/V Technology upgrade. This project has the full support from me, our church staff, and our church council. We are excited about how a new system will enhance our ministries and our ability to communicate the gospel of Jesus Christ through new media.

On the weekend of June 29th and 30th 2019, we will be celebrating 100 years of faithful mission and ministry, through Hope Lutheran’s witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Get it on your calendar now, and stay tuned for opportunities to get involved in planning, preparing, and celebrating this historic milestone!
