HOPE LUTHERAN CHURCH, Farmington Hills, Michigan
Hope Lutheran Church is a congregation that recognizes that our culture has changed and is changing, often in ways we do not clearly see or understand. In this fast paced, digital, screen driven culture, we see that the role of the church simply isn't the same as it was in years past. In some ways that is good...in others it isn't.
In any case, we are a congregation that accepts that the world is changing, even if the gospel isn't. We want to do our best at sharing and living the gospel of grace in a way that this culture will understand. We don't have all of the answers...but we certainly are a congregation that is faithfully trying to pass on the faith to others and the next generation by seeking, making and being disciples in this world.
