To help us prepare appropriately, advance sign-up is required for all individuals and family members attending (including those who will not be receiving Communion). If the two currently-scheduled services fill up, we will be adding another service, as needed. Please send an email to Pastor Lew (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’re waiting for information about additional services.
Members of Hope are welcome to review the available time slots below. Click on a “Sign Up” button to select a time slot, and then immediately click on the “Submit and Sign Up” button below to key in your information. Available time slots will be updated on a weekly basis. Send an email to Amy Elder ([email protected]) with questions about sign-up. Guests and visitors are asked to call the church office (919-554-8109) to speak with one of the pastors before communing.
The Sacrament of Holy Communion
As Lutheran Christians, we believe Christ’s body and blood are truly present with the bread and the wine, offering forgiveness of sins to all who believe in Jesus Christ. We ask those who commune to share this unity of faith in Christ and understanding of the Sacrament of Holy Communion. The Sacrament is ordinarily offered at Hope to youth after Confirmation in the 6th grade.
