Sunday Worship Service 10:30-11:45 (during school year)

Summer Service Hours 9:30-10:45 am (Memorial Day to Labor Day)

As weather permits, we are holding services outside the church building to allow for better physical distancing, so bring chairs or blankets to sit on the shaded lawn. In case of inclement weather, the service will be held inside the church with separated seating. In either case, gloves, masks and hand sanitizer are available at the entrance.

Before the service: Pray that God would bring all those who should be present and keep those who are elsewhere. Pray that He would protect all in attendance and guide those who lead in the service. When you arrive in the parking lot, pause for a moment and ask for the Lord’s help to know how to safely greet the friends that you haven’t seen for a while. It is best to avoid physical contact whenever possible. It’s a good idea to wear a mask when indoors or fellowshipping before and after the service, or whenever you come close to others. This simple act can communicate your care to other people. We do not expect you to wear a mask outdoors if you are maintaining 6’ distancing. Like Christ, we want to avoid being judgmental of what others do and enjoy worshipping as a whole body.

You can also watch our live stream to Facebook on the Hope Church page.  The service video recording is uploaded to Hope Church of Storm Lake YouTube channel at about 12:00 pm each Sunday.

During the school year, we offer Sunday School for all ages 9:15-10:00 am, and SHINE (a Wednesday night kid’s program) at 6:30 pm.

“We have our hope set on the living God,
who is the Savior of all people,
especially of those who believe.”
1 Tim. 4:10

Hope Evangelical Free Church is a family of people who believe in the Living God and His eternal redemption in Jesus Christ. As a part of the world Christian movement, our mission and worship are rooted in the historic, orthodox Christian tradition, celebrating the glory of the Triune God, the reforming truth of Scripture and love for all people.

In working with other Christians and churches, we agree with the sentiments of St. Athanasius:

“In essentials, unity;

in non-essentials, charity;

in all things, Jesus Christ!”
