25th Anniversary

All members and friends of Hope Lutheran Church are invited to join the congregation in celebrating our 25th Anniversary. We are highlighting the months of December 2021 through May 2022 for our celebration, in commemoration of the first worship service of the Wake Forest Lutheran Mission in December 1996 and the church’s Charter Sunday in May 1997. We rejoice at the countless gifts of grace God has shared with the people of Hope through the past years, even as we recommit ourselves to carrying on our mission in the present and future. 

Make plans to be present for the final Anniversary-themed worship services of the year, taking place on Saturday, May 14 (5:30 PM) and Sunday, May 15 (8:30 & 11:00 AM). The special preacher for the weekend will be Pastor Emeritus Preston Wagner.

On Friday, May 13 (7:00-9:00 PM), adults 21+ are invited to join in the fun and festivities at the “Silver Celebration.” This party will feature hors d’oeuvres, desserts, adult beverages, music, door prizes, selfie station photo booth, a brief Anniversary program, and opportunities to mix and mingle with the Hope family. Sign-up at details coming next weekend.

In celebration of Hope’s 25th Anniversary this year, members and friends of the congregation are invited to make a special thank-offering, in recognition of God’s hand of blessing through the years. Gift and contributions are establishing a new “Silver Mission Fund.” The Fund will provide annual grants for mission initiatives in our congregation and beyond. Please mark your gift “Silver Mission Fund.”
