Hope University

Miracles, Miracles, Miracles!

Come join us as we begin our Spring Semester with Pastor
Dean’s 4-week class named “Miracles, Miracles, Miracles!”
(January 13 – February 3)

Hear what Pastor Dean says about this class…
The four gospels in our Bible record Jesus performing 33
miracles. Only one is recorded in all four Gospels of Matthew,
Mark, Luke and John. Some of the gospel writers record the
same miracle event in different ways. Matthew records 19
different miracles. Mark records 17, Luke has 18 and John
has 8. So altogether we could say that miracles are described
62 times. Pastor Dean will lead us in discovering the different
kinds of miracles and why they are performed at different
times in Jesus’ ministry. Some writers have them in one place
and other writers have them at another place or time in Jesus’
life. Why, When, Where, Who and How are just some of the
questions we could ask. BUT we can also ask, “Do miracles
still happen today?” All of these questions still apply today.
Come or watch as we approach all those questions and share
Jesus’ disciples’ experience and our own each week
beginning January 13th.

Participants can now attend Hope University classes. We are limiting the class size to 10. You will need to register for each session if you wish to attend.

CDC Guidelines will be observed:

  • Your temperature will be checked at the front desk.
  • You must wear a mask at all times while inside the church.

Beware of gift card e-mail scams

Hope Lutheran Church is alerting the community that recent e-mail scams have targeted Hope members.

Several members have reported receiving scam e-mails, in which the sender claims to be Pastor Jon-Marc (or a staff member) and asks for gift cards.

Hope and its associates will NEVER send emails like this.

Our pastors will NEVER ask you for donations or favors via e-mail.

Please be wary of anyone claiming to be Hope staff, and always check the sender’s actual email address. If their email address is not from our @hope2all.org domain, then it’s not authentic. Sometimes these addresses can be “spoofed,” or made to appear as if they are coming from our @hope2all.org domain, so be cautious, and send anything suspicious to your JUNK folder.

If you receive emails from anyone asking you to purchase gift cards, it’s very likely a scam. If this happens, please flag that e-mail as JUNK, and block the sender’s e-mail address. Do not reply to the e-mail.

Thank you!
