What to Expect

“We don’t care what kind of clothes you wear, how many tattoos you have, 

what candidate you voted for.  

We’re a church full of broken, imperfect people with every kind of story.  

We are saving a seat for you; Experience Hope”


What's a service like?   

Our service lasts approximately 1 hour followed by "Hope Happy Hour" then Bible Class.   

Worship includes a special message for children and contains times for prayer, meditation, learning, and celebration.

What's the music like?  

We offer a blend of contemporary and tradition Christian songs

How people dress?  

Come as you are.   God is looking at your heart, not your clothing.

What about my kids?  

Bring you children, they are treasured by Hope members. We hope the will participate in the Children's message. We like to see families sit together with the congregation; we understand that children will be children. However, if you prefer, there is a "cry room" available where you can still be part of the service even when your children are more rambunctious than you would like.  

Sunday school classes are available during the Bible Class hour.

Can I take communion? 

Communion is held on the 1st and 3rd Sunday. 

Communion is open to all members of the Lutheran church and guests that can agree with the following statements:

  • I believe in Jesus Christ as my Savior
  • I believe in the real presence of Christ in, with, and under the bread and wine
  • I sincerely repent of my sins and welcome the Holy Spirit to work in my life
  • I agree with the church's teaching on communion

How can I get connected? 

Call the church at 904-677-4506 or Pastor Pat at 716-957-0470 

Or, you can just come unannounced and Experience Hope for yourself.  You'll be glad you did.

Where do I park?   

Park anywhere in the lot on the North side of the complex (next to the open field).  There's plenty of room; even if you arrive a bit late.

There is a handicapped accessible ramp just outside our door.
