A unique community among neighboring ELCA congregations.
House Hope is a member of the Bonfire Collaborative Ministry with First Lutheran Church of Crystal and St James Lutheran Church. Bonfire is a ministry which was begun as a way of allowing these churches to do ministry in our community together in ways that we would not be able to do separately. Our collaboration includes joint worship services, retreats, confirmation/youth programs, Vacation Bible School, first communion instruction, a shared Parish Nurse , health and wellness programs as well as programs with School District 281, like KidPark and SPARC.
Debbie Haney, Parrish Nurse
One very important facet of our Bonfire Ministry is the Parish Nurse Program. Debbie Haney serves the three parishes in this capacity and under her leadership we have begun a respite care program which meets the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month at House of Hope. The Health and Wellness Team which oversees this ministry has also started a Grief Support group for the three parishes.
