About Us

New Hope Lutheran Church is an Independent Lutheran Church. Our mission is to proclaim salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.

Worship time

9:30 AM, Sunday School for children at the same time as the service

Masks To Be Worn During Church Services: Because of Burnett County’s issuing of a mask guidance for public indoor meetings, and Gov. Evers’ directive for Masks to be worn in all indoor public places we request that masks be worn at all Worship Services.  The exceptions to this are for children under 5 years old, for those with a medical condition that would be affected by the wearing of a mask, and for those leading the service.

Masks may not protect one from getting the Coronavirus as much as they keep one from spreading it.  So our wearing of the mask is done to protect both ourselves as well as others in our congregation.

For those having a medical concern or not feeling comfortable to attend church in person, we continue to broadcast services on-line every Sunday.  If you have a need or desire to talk to Patzy or the Pastor, both are available.
