Hope Lutheran Church is a congregation of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod serving the Stanley Park -- Idlewood area of Kitchener, Ontario. Hope's brief history has been one of missions both at home and abroad for the gospel of Jesus Christ. Hope celebrates a conservative tradition that is progressive and contemporary. If asked what is the most positive aspect of the congregation, the people of Hope would respond by saying the special relationship they share with Christ and one another. We invite you to share in our vision to love one another as Christ has loved us as we prepare the whole people of God for whole life ministry.
Our mission at Hope Lutheran is to prepare (that is, equip and challenge) the whole people of God (that is, all who proclaim Christ as Lord) for whole life ministry (that is, assisting people to grow to their fullest in Christ).
