We are God’s people, baptized into new and eternal life in Jesus Christ and brought together by God’s Holy Spirit.  Seeking to grow in faith and obedience to God’s will, we come together gratefully to worship and learn, and we go out joyfully to share the good news and serve Christ in daily life.

At Grace Lutheran, we aspire 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 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.
