Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. Isaiah 40:31

Hope Lutheran Church

We believe, teach, and confess that it’s all about Jesus Christ, crucified and risen – which means that in Christ, sinners stand as saints in the presence of a holy God. As believers, it’s all about Jesus Christ. That’s especially true when we gather together for worship.

We invite you to join us for a worship service.  We think you’ll be able to hear something special. The “something special” is not the polished rhetoric of our pastor, nor is it the winsome personality he may (or may not!) have.  We’re convinced that the “Christ for us” message at the heart of the preaching and teaching is liberating and invigorating. We’re also convinced that such preaching and teaching is quite rare in our day.

We are convinced that in the unconditional gospel of Jesus Christ, proclaimed and given in the Sacraments, the human finds their place of safety and security, peace and joy, their home.  And that’s all we’re trying to offer:  a home in the hope of Christ Jesus, the crucified and risen Savior of all sinners.

Come home.  Come to Hope. Come to hear Christ.

Hope Lutheran Early Learning Center

Hope Lutheran seeks to serve our community and share the good news of Jesus by operating one of the premier early learning centers in Manhattan. We take seriously the privilege and responsibility parents give us in letting us partner with them to love and nurture their child. Through age appropriate learning, we seek to educate and promote each child’s development – mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual. Hope Lutheran Early Learning Center is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children: NAEYC, http://www.naeyc.org.

Within the loving relationship that each teacher creates, more trust is gained through the structure that Hope Lutheran provides.  Each day your child knows what to do when they first arrive and subsequently what will happen after each activity.  This provides your child with a sense of control.  This control allows them to feel safe and confident exploring the world and building on what they already know.  In the safety of an environment that they understand and feel at ease with, they learn self-control and learn how to focus on the task at hand; it may be putting a puzzle together, dealing with a conflict with a friend, or describing what they did at work time (play time—learning through play is hard work!).

Our curriculum, based on active learning, challenges the children to make choices, solve problems, and gain knowledge based on what they know.  The teachers plan developmentally appropriate lessons to challenge each child to think and perform on a higher level in language, literacy, communication; social and emotional development; physical development, health and well-being; and arts and sciences. Teachers prepare each individual child for their next step.

Hope Lutheran Church and Early Learning Center is excited and blessed to provide families with quality, loving child care and doubly blessed to serve children and families with the Gospel (Good News) of Jesus Christ for us.  We would love to partner with you to love and guide your child! The directors would love to give you a tour.
