Several volunteers are needed every Sunday morning, before, during, and after the Divine Service.

Ushers: Welcome guests as they enter the sanctuary and give them bulletins; collect offering, direct guests toward seats, and usher those gathered for the Divine Service to the Communion Table to receive The Lord's Supper.​​

Acolytes: Youths, 5th grade and up, perform the ceremonial duty of lighting candles in the Divine Service, and extinguishing them at the end of the service.

Audio Visual Managers: A/V volunteers make sure that all who are assembled on Sunday mornings are able to easily follow the liturgy, that is the order and content of the service, which is fully displayed on our two audio-visual screens. The bulletin and hymnal are also available for the same purpose.

Altar Guild: Distributing the Lord's Body and Blood in Holy Communion takes some prep work and clean-up! The altar guild helps the pastor by preparing the bread and wine before services and by reverently cleaning the communion vessels and linens after the service.

Hospitality Hosts: Every Sunday morning between the 8:30 & 10:30 AM Services, Hope members have a chance to enjoy a snack, a cup of coffee and some fellowship with each other, before Sunday School/Adult Bible Study starts at 9:45 AM (help yourself to more refreshments during class if you'd like).  If you might be able to  provide some snacks, brew some coffee and setup/teardown one or more times during the year, or you are able to assist with providing food or other help for our other fellowship events, send your inquiries or just sign-up in the form at left.

Helping hands: hospitality and compassionate care

New baby in the house? Recovering from surgery? Living alone and not able to drive? There are seasons in our life where the gift of some cooked meals, help with household chores or running errands, or having a visitor share some coffee and conversation, not only ease a burden but lift spirits. For more information, to serve, or to let us know how we can help you, please sign-up below.


The last Friday and Saturday of every month, between January and October, the quilters work diligently making quilts for needy children and families around the world. No experience with sewing? Quilt-tying and pinning border-hems are a great entry-level job for adults and older children. For more information, or to volunteer, please sign-up below. 


Twice a year, Hope cleans up a two mile stretch of highway.  Volunteers strap on yellow vests, grab a garbage bag and hit the road cleaning up litter and garbage off of Route 3. For more information, please sign-up below 

big walnut friends who share

For many years, Hope has joined other area churches in partnering with Big Walnut Friends Who Share (BWFS). We help them provide food

items, school supplies, hygiene items, etc. at different times throughout the year. To get in touch with our BWFS church liaison, please go to our contact page, or use the form below.


Hope's MEMORIAL garden

​A group of members at Hope have transformed our backyard into a memorial garden. Trees planted in memory of beloved saints who have gone to be with the Lord, and a mulched path and benches create a peaceful place to walk or sit and pray. The beautiful garden is lovingly maintained weekly, from April to October. Come enjoy the garden, or volunteer to help in its upkeep. For more information, please sign-up
