Hope's annual opportunity is ongoing.
 Each fall at Hope there is a special opportunity to donate to local, regional and international charities. Local donations will be given to the PG County Plaza Day Center/Churches United for Compassion and Empowerment (CUCE), regional donations to the Lutheran Immigration/Refugee Services and international donations to the Lutheran World Relief/Middle East Fund.
Please specify which organization you would like your donation to be sent to; unspecified donations will be divided equally between the three. Checks may be placed in the offering basket or mailed in. You may also give online through our regular online giving link. 
Thank you in advance for sharing your blessings!

Beautiful Music Supporting a Great Cause
Sunday, November 6, 2022, starting at 5pm.

The ELCA’s Region 8 is committed to equipping leaders to recognize and understand the complexities and implications of racism and racial issues and is offering training in the areas of anti-racism and racial justice for leaders in partnership with synods, congregations, associations, and social service agencies.

Region 8’s Racial Justice Training equips leaders (rostered and lay) to face the challenges of racism in a diverse, complex and changing world by providing tools and resources that foster healthy and holy conversations.

The next workshop, on Monday, November 7 from 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM, addresses these aspects of racism:

  1. Talking about Race: language and vocabulary
  2. History and systemic racism in the United States, and
  3. How to begin conversations and actions in your ministry context.
