  • On the 3rd Sunday of each month during the summer, we are planning on conducting Outdoor Services (weather permitting.)

    Please bring your comfortable chairs with you, if you have one available (we will provide one for you if needed), and you may dress appropriately.

Welcome to our Church.

Here may the faithful find salvation; The careless be awakened;
The doubting find faith; The anxious encouraged;
The tempted find help; The sorrowful comfort;
Here may the weary find rest; The strong renewed;
The aged find consolation; The young be inspired

We hope you and your family will have a warm and spirit-filled experience with us.
Come and join us in worship and fellowship.

Sunday Service schedule:

  • Our Current Summer Worship Schedule is at 9 AM and we will continue with the 9:00 AM services through October.

  • Join Services (5th Sunday of the month) will be held at alternate sites at 10 AM. Please keep posted for the next 5th Sunday Service information.

  • Effective January 1, 2021, The Lutheran Church of Our Savior in Stanhope has entered into a "Shared Ministry" with Redeemer Lutheran Church in Newton.
