St. Paul’s Evangelical Church

Photo submitted by Ed Osborne

Fall leaves frame St. Paul’s Evangelical Church recently. The church began as the German Religious Society in 1838, serving new German immigrants. In 1839-40, the congregation was organized and chartered as the German Evangelical Church, and built its sanctuary at the corner of Fifth and Scammel Streets in 1849. That sanctuary has been in use by this congregation to the present time. In 1872, “Saint Paul’s” replaced “German” in the church’s name. The church holds Sunday bible study at 9 a.m. and worship service at 10 a.m. If you have a photo that showcases the beauty of an area house of worship, submit it to Art Smith for possible inclusion on this page.
