Inviting people to Journey with Christ's Family in Spreading God's Love and Mercy
St. Paul's is a community with deep roots of faith and a commitment to proclaim God's love. Our heritage stretches back all the way to 1875, and we continue to strive to remain faithful disciples in this place over 125 years later. Our church is a place that welcomes all people. So whether you are seeking a church home or are just passing by on the Sparta-Elroy bike trail, come join us, as we seek to grow in faith as a family! On our bell the following words are inscribed, "Allein Gott in der hohe sei ehr," which translated into English reads, "All glory be to God on high." Each time the bell is rung, it proclaims this message.
Our Mission. . .
As disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ at St. Paul's Lutheran Church is:
To Go tell the good news of Jesus Christ
To Show God's love and concern for all people,
To Provide for those in need,
and Make Disciples by baptizing and teaching children and adults through God's Word. We commit ourselves to this mission, through prayer and through the offering of ourselves, our time, and our
money, signs of God's gracious love.
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor. Luke 4:18-19
We live in a world where people both young and old are starved for the love and support of caring communities. Here at St. Paul's, we take very seriously the call to be a family that welcomes all of God's children. We truly desire that anyone who is seeking a church home find this place where they can grow in love as children of God and members of our church family.
Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty." John 6:35
