Greetings to you from the members and staff of St. Paul’s Ev. Lutheran Church and School:
People often make the comment about our church and school: “I know where you’re located, right on Hwy. 23.” Yes, that’s us, the church about eight miles east of Fond du Lac on Hwy 23. In fact, we’ve been at this location for 155 years. We’re proud of being at the same location all this time.
It’s interesting to think what it must have been like way back then. Hwy 23 was probably just a trail in 1860. Perhaps, it had been an old Indian trail used for centuries by the native Americans who lived and hunted in these parts. Our church was probably surrounded by dense forests back then with a small area cleared for the new church. Maybe a person could just make out the steeple from a distance. In 1860 the parking lot (if there was one) was filled with real horse-powered carriages. How things have changed!
Our prayer at St. Paul’s this year and every year is that our message hasn’t changed over the 155 years of our existence. The good news the early settlers had in 1860 is what we still want to share today. That good news is based on our Savior Jesus Christ and his suffering and death for us on the cross. Our goal is still to preach Christ crucified for the removal of our sins and the hope of eternal salvation.
It is also our prayer to share that message with others. Therefore, if you are visiting this website to look at our church or find out more information about our church, please feel free to contact us. We would be glad to answer any questions you may have, or give you a tour of our facilities. We offer an excellent preschool through eighth grade Christian education at our school.
Our current family worship services are every Sunday morning at 8:00 and 10:00am, and Saturday afternoons at 4:00pm during the school year, and on Monday evenings at 6:30 during the summer months.
We look forward to meeting you!
Pastor Mark Barenz
