About Our Church

 

Who We Are

IMG 4067 editedThe members and friends of Hope Lutheran Church and Student Center welcome all persons into our community of faith.

 

Hope is:

  • a small but welcoming community that treasures the biblical gift of hospitality to all people;
  • a group of dedicated Christian folks who are deeply committed to the rich liturgical tradition of the church;
  • a place where those from IMG 3947 editedthe University of Maryland community--students and faculty--can gather together with families from all over the greater Washington, DC area;
  • a singing church with weekly celebrations of the Eucharist (the Lord’s Supper) open to all baptized Christians;
  • IMG 2839 editeda place where it’s perfectly okay to bring your questions and your doubts, and find them given honest and open discussion;
  • a place where life-long learning is celebrated and practiced;
  • a place where the Good News of the love of Jesus is shared with all in both word and action.

Come and worship with us, get to know us, and we hope you will become “one of the family”!
 

We invite you to explore the About Us section of the website to learn about Hope's pastors, mission, ministries, the history of our church, and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA).

 

Our Activities and Events

In addition to our worship service and Sunday school classes, we schedule events such as adult forums after coffee hour (visit our new Learning page), multi-generational fellowship activities ranging from birding at Lake Artemesia in College Park to game nights, Lenten and Advent programs, picnics, and many other activities. We are pleased to partner with one other local ELCA congregation in providing some of these activities.

 

An annual favorite is the Shrove Tuesday pancake supper (with pancakes cooked by The Humble Walk/Lutheran Student Association). Our choir always welcomes new members to its ministry of music. Check the calendar to find out what's coming up!
