To support the ministry at Hope Lutheran Church:


Wish list

We have a large number of budgetary line items that could be funded as a sponsored gift. For example: a member currently funds the communion wine, which eliminates about $20 of monthly expenses for the church. Another member may want to pay for offering envelopes, a month’s worth of postage, or flowers for the altar when no one signs up. Any number of items could be considered. There is a form that should accompany any request for something to be added to the WISH LIST as well as contributing toward the purchase of a WISH LIST item.

Please remember that this is not intended to replace regular giving.

The following needs have been identified by the council or the voters of Hope. (All costs are estimates.) If you are interested in helping toward one or more of these items, please contact Pastor Baldwin or a member of the church council.
