Secret Recipe?


WE PRESENT you with an online opportunity to view and participate in key portions of our worship experience for the Nineteenth Sunday after Pentecost. We offer this to you for the sake of those who are home bound, or temporarily cannot attend a worship celebration at their home church. In no way should this be taken as a replacement for regular Christian worship in a traditional faith community... for there you rightly worship God, are supported and offer the love of God to others.

Hope Honors Those Fallen

AS PART of our local observances concerning the devastating events that occurred on 9/11/2001, we of Hope Lutheran Church shall mark with solemnity the death and injury of many victims of violence on that day.
 As well, we ask that you personally mark before God the efforts of our local police, firemen and emergency responders. May each be appreciated in such manner that the ministry of these servants is thought of with the same love and respect that we collectively hold for our own deceased Christian brother Bill Lake.
 Therefore, please know that we shall not hold our traditional service for this Sunday at our normal time or site. Instead, our Council has voted to join with me and ask members to meet with us at the Courthouse in Smethport, PA at 8:30AM on this Sunday, September 9th. There we shall gather with others and participate in an organized memorial remembrance.
 As your pastor, may I also suggest that if your schedule permits you may take advantage of this opportunity to join in worship and Christian solidarity with members of our host Free Christian Evangelical Church. Their congregation meets in the church on Pine St. at 11AM.

WE ALSO PRESENT you with an online opportunity to view and participate in key portions of our usual worship experience. We offer this to you for the sake of those who are home bound, or temporarily cannot attend a worship celebration at their home church. In no way should this be taken as a replacement for regular Christian worship in a traditional faith community... for there you rightly worship God, are supported and offer the love of God to others.
