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.

Hosea 5:14 (NIV)
For I will be like a lion to Ephraim, like a great lion to Judah. I will tear them to pieces and go away; I will carry them off, with no one to rescue them.

Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
Be not ye therefore partakers with them.
For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:
(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)
Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.
And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.
But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.
Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.
