As a people loved by God, we are called to serve.


All are welcomed to join in worship and fellowship at either New Hope or Hayti Lutheran Churches, where our histories run as deep as the roots of the prairie grass our values were built upon.


Pastor Randy Eisenbiez serves both congregations and has served for over 25 years.


New Hope & Hayti Lutheran Parishes are affiliated with the North American Lutheran Church (NALC). Here is a link to the NALC newsletter.

Both churches have served our rural communities for over 100 years, having traditional Lutheran services every Sunday, and offering Sunday school to children from September - May. 

Please join us for worship and fellowship!
