Grace Lutheran Church
We feed people.
At Grace Lutheran, we try to embody our name in every way. As a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America NJ Synod, our roots are in offering grace and love towards all people. By worshipping and communing together regularly, we explore how to trust in God’s grace for us so that we can live faithfully in God’s word, and in turn, we give generously of ourselves to share the Good News for the sake of the world.
Grace is known for “feeding people”, by supplying food and cooking hot meals at Homeless Solutions and Faith Soup Kitchen. We gather food for the Interfaith Food Pantry of Morris County, and the Chester/Mendham Food Pantry, as well as hold special collection drives during Lent. At Sunday worship, we hope to nourish your mind and soul.
About Our Church
You are welcome at Grace.
Grace Lutheran is a Reconciling in Christ congregation.
We are particularly aware that some people have been wounded by churches. We know that sometimes it’s hard to connect to a faith community because of past experiences or current time commitments and responsibilities.
In his ministry, Jesus broke down barriers among people and practiced radical love of neighbor. We endeavor to do the same, offering a radical welcome to all people, recognizing that our diversity is a gift from God.
What is happening at Grace

Homeless Solutions staff and programs give people the tools they need to rebuild their lives – a safe, stable environment and networks to job search professionals.

Our faithful quilters have been stitching and sending homemade quilts to Lutheran World Relief for over 30 years.
In addition to being a cozy, clean new bed cover, a quilt can be used as:
a baby carrier, tied around a mother’s back;
a market display spread on the ground and piled with vegetables;
a sack for transporting goods to/from the market;
and most importantly a constant reminder that someone, far away, cares!
