Welcome to August.  On Sunday, August 6, join us after worship for the Annual Ice Cream / Pie Social and Auction.  We’re hoping that the People of Hope Lutheran can both donate pies for this cause, and also enjoy slices of pie and (and bid on pies) for charity.

From time to time, people from within and outside of the Hope Lutheran community approach the Pastor for help, or the Pastor becomes aware of people in need.  Hope budgets a small amount to cover such needs.  This year, proceeds from the Pie Social event will augment these efforts, and in doing so, support needy people via the Pastor’s Discretionary Fund.


Looking ahead to next month, Hope Lutheran still needs     helpers to plan, cook, and serve dinner at the San Jose Family Supportive Housing shelter on Saturday, September 23.  For this evening, the People of Hope Lutheran will prepare and serve dinner to the 30 families who reside at the shelter, and would otherwise be on the streets were it not for the Family Supportive Housing’s outreach.  Contact Mark Greiner for details on how you can help.


While our group “took a holiday” last month, we’re getting back to work this month.  Our next meeting will be at 7pm on Tuesday, August 1.  All are welcome.


Mark Greiner, Chair

May Milk Drive


Our thanks to all those who donated powdered milk to our May Milk Drive. Through generous donations, both monetary and in kind, Hope was able to many gallons of milk to the feeding ministry of Our Daily Bread in Sunnyvale.


Milk is always appreciated by the diners and is especially valued in the summer months when more school children are served.
