Welcome to House of Hope!

Living out God’s grace we seek to be neighbors to all.


We encourage you to explore our ministry and join us for worship. We are proud to be a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and the Minneapolis Area Synod, located in New Hope, Minnesota.

House of Hope Lutheran Church is a Reconciling in Christ Community.  All are welcome to worship, to hear the Good News, to receive the sacraments, and to participate fully in fellowship and service.  God loves us unconditionally and we endeavor to be a place where that same hospitality is extended to everyone.  Following Christ we seek justice and reconciliation among all peoples. We welcome everyone, without exception and regardless of sex, race, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical and mental ability, age or station in life, faith or creed.  Each person is a unique creation of God and through Grace, is a child of God.  We are very glad you are here.
