Hope Lutheran Church

-A A +A
1917, John Reininga. 312 S. 3rd St. (northwest corner of Powell Ave.) (NR)

The Reverend John Reininga, who designed this picturesque church, also carved the ornate altar for his German congregation. The cast stone exterior walls rise into a 96-foot spire with gables over the belfry. The little-changed, traditional interior retains fourteen splendid stained glass windows, including a triple-panel Biblical scene.
