Thinking of visiting Cross of Hope? Welcome!
You will find a warm, loving, and caring congregation dedicated to pursuing God's vision for us. We offer a range of services from traditional through contemporary. Please browse through our service descriptions below and see what best fits your style of worship.
Children are always welcome in the service, but there is an attended nursery available for children ages 0-4 and a quiet room where mothers can nurse in the nursery, if needed. If you have any questions as you first visit our church, please ask the hosts who will greet you at the front door, our ushers, or any of our friendly members. We welcome you with open arms in the name of Christ.
Saturday 5:30 p.m. Evening Worship
This service provides a casual intimate atmosphere, communion every week, and life relevant Biblical messages.
Sunday 8:30 a.m. Blended Worship
This service utilizes traditional liturgy and music which includes great hymns of the church. The service is family-oriented, with children present and has a warm, friendly atmosphere and is life relevant with Biblical messages. The blended worship style encourages us to see the wideness of God’s love for us. Communion is shared each Sunday.
Sunday 10:45 a.m. Contemporary Worship
This service offers a more relaxed atmosphere. During the summer, we worship outside on the lawn, where shorts and lawn chairs are the norm. The music is led by our praise team, and the musical style consists primarily of contemporary praise music. Sometimes, drama and faith journeys/personal testimonies are featured. Currently, our children’s choir presents musical offerings once each month (September through May). This is a warm and friendly, outgoing and engaging service for those who are uncomfortable in more formal church settings. Communion is shared during the first and third Sundays each month.
Worship is our response to a gracious and living God who has redeemed and renewed us in Christ Jesus. It is a time to gather in God’s presence, hear God’s Word, sing God’s praise, and share God’s presence through prayer and Holy Communion. God created order, and structured the world. In the church, this structure is called liturgy; or more simply, the order in which the elements occur during our worship services. God values the substance of our worship, yet recognizes that form and style may vary from culture to culture, and generation to generation. Here at Cross of Hope, our services are each distinctly different in style, but consistent with the beliefs of the Lutheran church.
