Notice


After reviewing all the surveys, Council has voted to resume in person communion beginning October 1, 2022. It will be optional, so those who prefer to receive communion in their seats can still pick up a cup upon entering the sanctuary.

 

 

We are still looking for people to fill up some of our teams: especially education team and outreach team. Please notify Rosemary if you are interested. You do not need any special training or background., just a willingness to share ideas and be of service! That means YOU!  president@spiritofhopelutheran.com

 Mesa Hydration Donation Campaign

Donate bottled water to help the homeless and unsheltered during the summer

You can drop cases off here at church. Cash donations are also accepted.


Beginning in September we will be engaging in a special stewardship program called Sparked By The Spirit which looks at the different ways we can give of ourselves for the ministry of Christ’s church. YOU are the church and each one of us has a special role to carry out in our ministries. This program is a challenge for you to see how you might be able to make even a BIGGER difference for Spirit of Hope.
