4H Club

Hands of Hope 4-H Club was established in 2010. We are a Community Club that meets on the 3rd Friday of each month at 3:45 p.m. at Hope Lutheran Church and School. Sometimes the meeting dates or times change due to school conflicts, so we recommend calling to confirm.

Hands of Hope members are involved in many projects such as: Clothing, Foods, Fiber Arts, Visual Arts, Photography, Leadership, Entomology, Dogs, Goats, Shooting Sports, etc. During monthly meetings, members give project talks and demonstrations to strengthen their communication skills. As a group we compete in the County Club Days and work at the concession stand at the fair.

Community Service is a central goal for our club. Some of our projects include: ringing bells for Salvation Army, singing at a local nursing home, sewing for "Tree of Warmth" and collecting items for underprivileged foster children.

Lego Club

Dream it. Build it. Wreck it.

Kids are already naturally gifted creators. Then they get added inspiration from our specially trained instructors. They dive into our massive collections of LEGO® And while they build elaborate objects, structures, and vehicles, they explore fundamental principals of engineering and physics. They also learn to collaborate and create without fear of mistakes.

The experience is joyful, the impact is long-lasting. Learn more and sign up at www.play-well.org.

This after school activity is offered in two sessions during the school year.


Each spring the 7th and 8th grade students can participate in the Spring Melodrama as actors, stage hands, or both. Students learn the basics of theater production while enjoying Christian fun and fellowship.


Students in grades 4-8 can participate in First Lego League robotics teams that meet after school.


Hope offers a variety of scouting programs for both boys and girls of all age levels. Each program strives to have fun activities and help the children grow in their leadership skills. Parent involvement and initiative is imperative for a successful scouting program!
