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.
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!

Places of the Passion
In this service for Week 2 of Lent, the place of the Passion is the Mount of Olives, where Jesus went with this disciples to pray. We are called to find places to pray this Lent and seek the will of the Lord in our lives. The meaning, history and spiritual inspiration associated with the Mount of Olives help us to grow to understand more deeply the hard road our Lord took that the way to heaven might be open to us.

Starting Sunday, February 14 and every second Sunday of the month (excluding May), Pastor will fill in once a month for worship at American Lutheran Church in Castlewood in order to provide communion the congregation. New Hope and Hayti services will be lead by a student, who is the supply preacher for American Lutheran Church, but who is not yet ordained and as such cannot preside over communion in their church.
Hayti Quilters are in need of good used sheets for quilt filling and/or backings for mission quilts. Also, they are in need of fabric suitable for cutting into squares for quilt tops. Donations are greatly appreciated, and can be dropped off at the church during office hours or Sunday mornings before or after church.

From the Joint Council:
Dear members of New Hope & Hayti Lutheran Churches,
We will be holding indoor church services starting on May 10, 2020. Hayti Lutheran at 9:00 am; New Hope Lutheran at 10:30 am. Following is what we will be doing to keep people safe:
An entrance door will be left open so no one has to touch door handles/knobs etc.
Bulletins will be placed in the pews on Friday morning. We will wash hands to keep the bulletins free of germs.
Stay together in family units at least six feet apart. (overflows will be opened to help spread us out in the sanctuary)
There will be no sharing of the peace, no hand shaking, I will not greet people at the back of church before or after services.
I will stay in the altar area of the church during the duration of the service.
There will be no ushers; because of that we will have:
A table placed at the back of the church with the offering plates where offering can be placed either before or after services.
The table at the back of the church will have hand sanitizer to help keep germs at bay.
Masks are recommended but not required.
PLEASE: If you feel sick, STAY HOME; if you are uncomfortable with worshipping at this time, STAY HOME; if you are at risk, STAY HOME!
We will still be recording the service and making it available online.
New Hope Church History Books - Still Available
The New Hope history books are still available. History books can be purchased for $30/each from Gail Roe. Several New Hope ladies spent many hours compiling this extensive history book - if something happened in New Hope's history - it's sure to be in this book! It also includes information from previous history books. Great gifts for holidays, birthdays, Mother's/Father's Day or just because. Also fun to peruse in search of old pictures of grandparents, your young parents, childhood friends, or childhood photos of yourself - not to mention all the fun and interesting tid-bits of church, local and national history.
