Welcome to the Internet site for The Log Church in Tripoli, Wisconsin. The Log Church is rich in history. Often referred to as the Tripoli Log Church, it was built in 1917 when a desire for a fitting house with which a small rural community could come together in worship was voiced. Located in the beautiful Northwoods area of Wisconsin, Tripoli was a hub of activity during the early days of the logging boom. The folks settling here were hard working, live off the land, hearty families from a wide variety of cultures, many coming directly from foreign lands. Relocating here to begin new lives, homesteading and looking towards prosperity, leaving behind the conveniences of city life, many found the lack of community difficult. Stores, eating establishments and most of the other related businesses soon sprang to life. As there were no churches in the region, locals came together under the leadership of the Stolle family. The land and materials were donated to begin construction. The sanctuary was completed in 1918 and has been in continuous operation serving this diverse community. We are a non-denominational community church with open doors for anyone in need of Jesus Christ's Good News. Our basic message is "All Are Welcome" and we strive to make our mission outwardly focused and simple, love your neighbor as yourself. We are easy to get to, just don't blink when you get in the area! If you can't seem to find us, just stop and ask anyone. The church can be found on U.S. Highway 8 northwest of Tomahawk. Approximately 16 miles west of U.S. Highway 51, the drive is beautiful and easy. We usually tell folks to drive along until you start to see a bunch of houses, a tavern, a gas station and then watch your speed. We're on the south side of the road. Please don't hesitate to plan a visit on any Sunday morning. You just might find that you'll want to make The Log Church a weekly destination.

The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side.
And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore.
And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow;
And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:
Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth:
And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.
And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them:
But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.
Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
