The Living Hope Family is excited to welcome Pastor Jonah Burakowski and his family to our congregation! On Sunday, September 7th at 4:30 p.m., an installation service will take place which will include a message from our District President, the Rev. Dr. John Denninger. Everyone is invited and welcome to attend as we join together to thank the Lord for giving our congregation this Pastor to lead us in sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ in the Stafford County community. All are also invited to a reception following the service.
Welcome to Living Hope! We are a group of Christians dedicated to growing in the grace and love of Jesus Christ, and we uphold the Holy Scriptures (the Bible) to be the only infallible guide to following in Jesus’ footsteps.
We invite individuals and families throughout Stafford County to join us for Sunday worship services. We offer two different service styles: one that uses the Lutheran Service Book orders of worship and traditional hymnody (8:15 a.m. service), and another that uses contemporary songs of praise to accompany confession and absolution, Bible lessons, a sermon, and a brief review of Luther’s Small Catechism (10:45 a.m. service). Each worship service includes the Sacrament of Holy Communion to sustain and strengthen our lives in Christ.
We encourage families to engage in daily devotional time at home. We also invite individuals and families to explore our additional educational opportunities, such as adult Bible study, Sunday school, confirmation classes, and more.
In addition to our church, we also run a state-licensed, Christian-based preschool and childcare facility. We offer a variety of part- and full-time child care and preschool programs for children aged six weeks to five years. Our facility also offers before and after school programs for school-aged children (ages 5 to 12).
As a state-licensed facility, we adhere to all state guidelines, including student-to-teacher ratios, and are subject to surprise inspections each year. All of our instructors receive formal training annually and are dedicated to ensuring the safety and well being of all children, as well as fostering each child’s physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual growth through varied curricula and stimulating, wholesome activities.
