toward the work of Hope in the local, regional, national, and international care.
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 link above and share in the work we do in the world.
Hope believes strongly in good stewardship. To that end, we dedicate to grow our giving to our higher church offices each year. We are currently at 5% with a goal of a true tithe of 10%. While a portion of this money is used to pay salary for administration, teachers, and bishops, it is more importantly, used by the ELCA 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.
