At Living Hope Bible Church, Our Praise Team offers a variety of upbeat contemporary songs as well as powerful worship songs with a blend of hymns scaled to suit every type of worshipper. We believe our set lists are tailored by the Holy Spirit as we devote times of prayer and reflection so as to follow the leading of the Spirit of God. PSALM 33:2 Praise the Lord on the harp; make music for him on a ten-stringed lyre. 3 Sing a new song to him; play well and joyfully.  We are always looking for musical talent to add to our team (specific needs include percussion, keyboard, and guitar.  Please contact Mike Shinko or Curt Strunk if you would like to explore joining this Ministry.

We rehearse in the Sanctuary Saturday Morning's at 10:00AM.


We call our gathering our "Body Builders Class" since the purpose of our meeting is to encourage and build up each other's faith. This needed ministry of encouragement involves a time for sharing our personal struggles and triumphs through discussion and prayer.  We conclude our time with a interactive Bible study which stresses a proper interpretation and application of God's truth. We welcome everyone to join us for this personal and informal gathering.  This study is lead by Pastor Mark.

We meet every Wednesday evening from 6:15PM - 8:00PM for fellowship, pray, and study.  We are currently doing a 'practical study on how to interpret the Bible'.  Join us anytime.


We are building a men's ministry based on a scriptural account of what God wants His men to be like. God has ordained through the Scriptures that men be leaders as well as followers, that their lives reflect moral and ethical living, that they be loving and devoted husbands, and that their lives reflect the same values of Jesus Christ. We want to get to know each other by ministering to each other as well as to anyone in need. The men's ministry will meet for Bible studies and social activities with ministering opportunities always in mind. Come check it out and be the man God created you to be!  This group is lead by Mike Shinko.  


We meet every third Tuesday at the Main Bean, in Luzerne, 5:30PM.

WOMEN'S Fellowship

All women are joyfully invited to join us for this encouraging time of fellowship meal, prayer, and Bible study.  This study is lead by Deborah Miller.


We meet every second Saturday at 4:00PM, at Deborah's home.


We are a loving and compassionate church.  The CARE Ministry provides encouragement, benevolence, visitation, travel assistance, and food assistance to those in need.  Please contact Pastor Mark, Peter Nordmann, or Margaret Johnson for details.
