In 2013, House of Hope began a journey as a “Reconciling in Christ Community". Along with many other churches, synods and faith groups throughout the United States, we faithfully accepted the challenges and proposed actions of the Reconciling Works organization to become a welcoming and inclusive community for all people. Under the guidance of our Pastor and Leadership Team, we created a "Welcoming Statement" to represent our community.
“House of Hope Lutheran Church is a Reconciling in Christ Community. All are welcome to worship, to hear the Good News, to receive the sacraments, and to participate fully in fellowship, service, and leadership. God loves us unconditionally and we endeavor to be a place where that same hospitality is extended to everyone. Following Christ, we seek racial and social equity with reconciliation among all peoples. We welcome everyone, without exception and regardless of sex, race, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, physical and mental ability, age or station in life, faith, or creed. Each person is a unique creation of God and through Grace, is a child of God. We are very glad you are here!”
