MINISTRIES & LEARNING
In addition to our weekly Sunday Morning worship service, which we believe is the most important gathering of the saints on earth, at Hope we have other ministries we invite you to participate and/or volunteer in.

At Hope we believe the Bible is inspired, inerrant, and authoritative in all matters of faith and life. Along with this, we believe that, unlike any other book in this world, the Bible is living and active (Hebrews 4:12). That is, it actually does something when it is preached, taught, and studied.
For this reason, at Hope Free Lutheran we desire to give opportunity for the continued study of God's Word outside of regular the Sunday morning worship service.
Here is our current Bible Study offerings:
Men's Bible Study, Saturdays @ 8am at Nana Lil's (51 Railroad St SE, Killdeer, ND)
Advent Study, first four Wednesday evenings in December
Lenten Study, each Thursday evening from Ash Wednesday to Easter

In the Lutheran church, confirmation instruction has always been an important aspect of our ministry. It is a way for those baptized into Christ and maturing in faith to be further grounded in the Word of God and instructed in the key doctrines, ministry, and life of the church. In other words, its chief purpose is not to graduate but to educate and make life-long disciples of Jesus Christ.
At Hope Free Lutheran, confirmation instruction consists of two-and-a-half years of study, which culminates (if so desired and approved) in a student publicly confirming their faith in Christ and their desire to continue as a member in the Lutheran Church.
The two-and-a-half years of study include:
Studying through Luther's Catechism, which is a simple, clear, and faithful explanation of the key teaching of God's Word.
Studying through the History of the Christian Church.
Studying what a Christian worldview is and why it matters.
