Life Groups

Life Groups provide members of our congregation an opportunity to grow in their faith by connecting with people who have similar interests.  Below is a list of the current Life Groups at Hope Lutheran Church.

Do you have an idea for a new Life Group?  Contact Angie Newton to get started (952-492-2099 or   We are especially looking for people interested in leading a Book Club, Outdoor Adventure Group, and another Cooking Club.

Adult Choir
The adult choir rehearses every Wednesday (September – May) from 7:30 – 8:30 p.m. in the sanctuary.  The choir performs most Sunday mornings during the 9 a.m. worship service.  The only requirement is that you enjoy singing.  Please contact Char Senske ( at 952-492-2660 with questions.

Fishers of Men
The Fishers of Men meets one Saturday each month (May – Sept.) for fishing and fellowship while enjoying the best of what Minnesota has to offer. You’ll explore a different lake each month. Check out the sign-up sheets in the narthex for dates, times, and lake details. Who knows? You may even come home with some fish to eat (or at least some fish tales). If you have questions or want more information, contact Jason Felten at 952-221-9873.

Knitting Fellowship Group
The Knitting Fellowship Group meets the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month at 6:30 p.m. in the activity room.  Members of the group bring their craft projects and enjoy each other’s company.  If you have questions, please contact Sandy Iverson at 952-492-3767.

Men of Hope
The Men of Hope meets the 1st Saturday of each month (September – May) at 7:30 a.m. at The Feedmill Restaurant 200 Water St. in Jordan.  The men’s group provides a forum to allow everyone to get to know each other better and a social setting to develop a sense of community.  The group prepares and serves a Mother’s Day breakfast each year following worship.  If you have questions please contact Denny Lindell ( ) at 952-297-5766.

Who’s Coming to Dinner?
The “Who’s Coming to Dinner?” group meets the 2nd Saturday of each month at 6:30 p.m.  It is a great way to enjoy food and fellowship while getting to know fellow congregation members.  How does it work?  The host provides the main dish and dinner attendees are asked to bring a dish to share.  The host does not know who’s coming to dinner.  The dinner attendees know where they are going but don’t know who’s joining them.  Contact Darlene Marte ( if you would like to participate in future events.

Women’s Fellowship

The Women of Hope gather for supper at Carasim Coffee Shop at 6:00pm on the 1st Thursday of the month. Join us as we share a meal and stories about our lives. It is a wonderful way to get to know your sisters in Christ! Contact Sarah Gavert at 952-463-6149 or ( with any questions.
