Sunday Worship Online:

Join us on YouTube at 9:00 am for Virtual Worship

Due to the current restrictions on social gatherings in an attempt to flatten the Covid-19 curve, please join us for our brand new virtual livestream worship on YouTube or Facebook.

Hope is all about community. Every person who walks through our digital doors is important to us. We have a long tradition of outreach and service to our members and community. To learn more about our congregation, the E.L.C.A., our staff, and our faith statements and action in the world, investigate our menu at the top of the screen. To learn more about what is happening now at Hope, scroll down to the blog posts at the bottom of this page.

COVID-19 is changing our communities rapidly, and it can be hard to keep up with the latest news and resources. Here at the top of the screen we have dedicated a page to the resources and news that we find most helpful. Please feel free to email the Hope office directly at office@hoperiverside.org if there is a way we can be of assistance.

For minute-by-minute changes, please see our Facebook page.


Hope believes strongly in good stewardship in all areas of our lives. We also recognize that we live in a world where money is a significant commodity. Financial gifts to Hope finance ministry in the world through pastoral care, sacramental life, education, counseling, and support. Additionally, a portion is sent to our higher church, the E.L.C.A.. While a portion of this money is used to pay salary for administration, teachers, and bishops, it is more importantly, used by the E.L.C.A. to fund important care for the world through programs like malaria nets, HIV medication, wells for communities without water, humanitarian crisis response, education programs, Lutheran Disaster Relief, and more. To learn more about how we use financial support as a whole church, visit ELCA.org.

Offering is an important part of our lives as Christians. As a steward, or caregiver of all that God gave us, we are invited to return a portion to God’s work in the world. We invite you to click on the large “GIVE” link above and share in the work we do in the world.

We hope that in-person worship services will commence by Easter. If not, the Hope Council and Worship team are working on alternatives to make Easter Worship special from the comfort of your own home. Please check back regularly for updates.
