Hope Lutheran Chapel, LCMS serves Lake area residents and visitors by providing Hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. We believe we are saved by Grace Alone, through Faith Alone, and in the Work of Jesus Christ Alone. We pray when you visit us you may find that same Hope in you. We believe worship services are primarily God serving us in Word and Sacrament. We return that service to him in confession, prayer, praise, and thanksgiving.
Hope Lutheran Chapel, in conformity with the Holy Scriptures and care for all who worship here practices closed communion. If you are a member of a LCMS (Missouri Synod) or AALC congregation in good standing, are repentant of your sins, hold no grudges against your neighbor, seek to reconcile yourself with those you have hurt and believe Jesus gives you his true body and true blood for the forgiveness of your sins, you are welcome to commune here. If you are not a member of one of these synods please speak with the pastor before service or email him at email@example.com before communing.

On June 2nd Pastor, the Elders and the President of the congregation met to discuss reopening. We decided to reopen the Church for worship June 7th. Here are the guidelines for worship.
Do not congregate in the Narthex
An usher will hand you the bulletin with a mask on
There are closed pews and open pews designating 6′ social distancing between pews.
There will be a 6′ spacer in each pew to insure social distancing between family units in a pew.
There will no hymnals in the pews. Everything will be in the bulletin you need for worship.
Pastor will call up each pew to receive the Lord’s Supper starting with the pulpit side.
As each row comes up make sure you keep 6′ between you and the family unit in front of you.
We are planning on up to 2 family units at the altar rail. One unit should go to the wall, the other stay towards the center. Keep an eye on pastor for directions.
Pastor will wash his hands before the distribution. He will use hand sanitizer between tables.
The elders will wipe off altar rail between pews coming up.
After communion return to your seats for the rest of worship
The offering will be collected after the service in plates in the back of the church.
The ushers will dismiss each pew after the service. Please do not congregate in the narthex but leave the building after being dismissed.
If you have business in the church after service i.e. counters, altar guild, let the ushers know and remain in your pew until everyone else leaves.
Try not to touch things in the church.
If you don’t feel comfortable coming inside yet the service will still be broadcast to the parking lot and you can listen to it outside or you may watch it livestream on our Facebook page.
