Hope Lutheran Church is a vibrant, growing, spirit filled Lutheran congregation with roughly 1100 members in beautiful Farmington Hills, MI, a suburb of the Detroit metro area.
Hope celebrates that God has created us to be unique and that Jesus speaks to us in different ways. We are open to multiple types of worship, music styles, and perspectives. Our community of Faith embraces differences among all of God's children!
Like many congregations, Hope is seeking to share our understanding of the Gospel with an ever changing, dynamic, diverse, digital, and fast paced culture. How? We believe that worship, service, children-youth and family ministry, and small groups are all important, but it all begins with the ministry of hospitality. We may do great work for the sake of the gospel, but if people can't get past their first impression of our church family, then they will never have a chance to find out about the great work we do.
