Welcome to Hope UMC!
Three guiding principles:
GOD’S LOVE IS GREAT! We want you to experience the amazing love of Jesus.
GOD CALL US TO A NEW LIFE. We invite you to join us on the journey of being followers of Jesus Christ.
GOD’S WORD IS RELEVANT. We believe that God’s Word offers us hope and guidance for everyday life. We seek to be shaped by God’s truth through our daily Bible reading, small group studies, and teaching in our various weekly worship services.

Children's Ministry Coordinator
I'm Mary Gustafson, the Children's Ministry Coordinator. I've been with Hope UMC since January 2016 and have loved getting to know all of the children and families! I am a wife to Ryan and a mommy to Oliver and Nora. We enjoy reading, going for walks, and being at the lake. I am blessed for the opportunity to share God's Word with others!
Discipleship Ministries (Volunteer)
I enjoy serving alongside my husband, Russ, and I enjoy growing with people committed to following Jesus. I am blessed to teach at the high school in town, and I'm grateful to call Blue Earth home and have HOPE UMC be my church home!
