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.

and prayed: "O my God, I am too ashamed and disgraced to lift up my face to you, my God, because our sins are higher than our heads and our guilt has reached to the heavens.

The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned. You have enlarged the nation and increased their joy; they rejoice before you as people rejoice at the harvest, as warriors rejoice when dividing the plunder. For as in the day of Midian's defeat, you have shattered the yoke that burdens them, the bar across their shoulders, the rod of their oppressor. Every warrior's boot used in battle and every garment rolled in blood will be destined for burning, will be fuel for the fire. For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David's throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this.
