Enjoy this wonderful opportunity at Hope Lutheran Language School.

We offer a ten- week introductory course; a great opportunity to explore and learn Arabic and Hebrew. Along the period of this course, students will be able to learn basic communication skills. Those skills will be utilized during class sessions by allowing the students to conduct simple conversations with their peers as well as their teacher.

In addition, students will be able to decode and then acquire reading skills while at the same time they will be able to learn basic vocabulary, sentence structure and grammar.  At this stage of the learning process, writing will be introduced in order to enhance and improve the students’ reading ability and their learning experience.

The four skills required for the acquisition of a new language: reading, writing, interpreting, and speaking- will be implemented in class to make sure the students are exposed to any challenge presented by the learning of a new language. For this same purpose, a variety of teaching methods will be used in class in order to cater to each student’s strengths and ability, while never forgetting the fun side of learning a new language. 

Keeping in mind that languages are a window to the cultures where they are spoken, Hebrew and Arabic will be taught in context of the cultures they represent. Technology turned the world into a small global village and so more people turn to learning language in order to help them understand and appreciate other cultures. We would love to have you in our class! For more information please contact Mrs. Camelia Eid (E-mail:

Sundays @ 9:45am

NEW MEMBER CLASS: The Christian Faith through Luther’s Small Catechism

       Perhaps you are new to Christianity. Perhaps you are new to the Lutheran Church. Maybe you’re just new to Hope. Or maybe it’s been “forever” since you opened your Catechism. In any case, join us starting June 9 for what we CALL the “new member class.” Pastor Nieting will be the teacher, along with a few guest instructors. If you have questions, call him at 635-4046 or e-mail him at


     It’s certainly not “PC” to think of someone being spiritually “lost,” is it? Yet around each of us are countless people who matter deeply to God but don’t know Him or His plan of salvation. They are lost and in danger of eternal separation from God. It may well be that YOU are God’s main hope for their eternal salvation. How do we “cultivate” in ourselves a true “heart for the loss?” Pastor Cofer will lead this class. If you have questions on what this is about, call him at 424-4848 or e-mail him at
