On Sunday, November 16, Hope Lutheran Church in Fellowship with Christ, LCMC, of Edgar celebrated it fifth anniversary.

Rev. Bill Christiansen, LCMC, of Stevens Point, is guest speaker at the celebratory service, along with Rev. David Lathrop, Hope’s pastor.

The congregation began its history by meeting in the Wien Town Hall on November 8th of 2009 to start a new and independent Lutheran Church.

A building was purchased in 2010 and expanded in 2013 to include offices and Sunday school rooms. A prayer garden and cemetery were recently dedicated.

The church now serves a congregation of 194 members and offers a full range of activities, with the Sunday service at 9:30 a.m. along with Sunday school, adult Bible study, children’s choir, adult choir, Bible studies, a book club, youth group and a women’s group.

Hope Church’s stated mission is to teach the Bible and follow Christ’s example by giving back to the community and those in need.

Hope Church is sponsoring a theatrical performance by Jonathan Swenson, professional actor and ordained minister, of Paraphrase Theatre, during the 9:30 service on Sunday, November 30. The performance is titled “Celebrate the Child” and is in honor of Christmas. The public is invited to this free event.
