Sunday Morning Summer Schedule

During the summer we will have one worship service on Sunday mornings at 10:00a.m. This will create opportunities for adult education, workshops, and fellowship. Some activities will include a summer Bible study and brunch, workshops for worship leaders, and a study on the ELCA’s Draft Social Statement on Women and Justice. We will go back to the regular schedule of two services at 9:00a.m. & 11:00a.m. in September.


May 20th: Joint service at Easter Hill United Methodist Church – no services at Hope that day

Celebrating Together
In a welcomed partnership with a fellow Greater Richmond Interfaith Program (GRIP) congregation, we will celebrate Pentecost Sunday with Easter Hill United Methodist Church Sunday, May 20th at a single 10:00 a.m. service.  Worship will take place at Easter Hill UMC, 3911 Cutting Boulevard in Richmond.

The choirs from both congregations will sing together and separately. Caroline Melson is coordinating children’s sacred dance. A potluck lunch will follow worship.

This is a wonderful opportunity for shared worship and fellowship. We have a common mission in our service at GRIP and concern for our local community. The United Methodist Church has been a Full Communion Partner with the ELCA since 2009; this is a chance to celebrate our shared faith, experience the differences in how we worship, and meet members of our community with whom we share common and divergent interests.

No worship service will be held at Hope Lutheran Church on May 20th.

Lenten services: Soup, bread, fellowship, and a special worship during the season of Lent at Hope Lutheran

Share supper, conversation, and evening prayer on Wednesday evenings during Lent. Invite your friends to come for a light meal and our Lenten study, “Faces of Christ.” We’ll learn about ELCA World Hunger’s accompaniment of communities around the world. Over the five weeks, we will reflect on who Jesus is for us, with us, and among us today. We’ll close with evening prayer.

Join us at 6 p.m. at Hope Lutheran Church.

ADDRESS: 2830 May Road, El Sobrante CA 94803
