I'd like to welcome you to our website!

We hope that through its words and images we can introduce you to and keep you up-to-date on all the events and ministries that help make the people of Hope Lutheran Church such faithful witnesses for God's kingdom here in the north Georgia mountains!

 You can find the directions to our location on the "Visit Us" page of this web site. If you need further directions, call the church office at (706) 636-4673.

If you'd like to know more about our mission to the communities of Jasper and Ellijay, come join us at Hope Church and share in the life that that has been reserved for all of us in the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
