Hope Lutheran project progresses

Fargo - Hope Lutheran Church is in the midst of a multimillion-dollar improvement/expansion project, and it’s starting to show.

Soaring arches that have appeared on the south campus of Hope Lutheran, 3636 25th St. S., are part of a chapel that, once completed, will be used for intimate events, including smaller worship services, weddings and funerals, said the Rev. Paul Nynas, executive pastor at Hope Lutheran, which also has a campus in north Fargo.

At the north campus, the improvement project included technology upgrades and expanding the church parking lot. Re-roofing will also happen.

The south campus is seeing the bulk of improvements, with about 14,000 square feet of multipurpose space being built for the children’s ministry, adult ministry and confirmation ministry.

The new chapel is in addition to the multipurpose space.

Technology upgrades have also been completed at the south campus, along with kitchen remodeling.

“The timetable is to have basically everything in place here by summer, so we’re completely operational by fall,” Nynas said.

More than $5 million has been pledged to help pay for the work happening at Hope Lutheran. For more information about projects at the church, visit www.fargohope.org/decade
