St. Paul's Lutheran Church

Experience the grace and beauty of St. Paul's Lutheran Church--perhaps an unexpected treasure in the heart of Sugar City. Sponsored by the Evangelical Lutheran Synod of Iowa, the church was established in 1901 with twenty-five families attending the first meeting. The congregation continued to meet at various locations until the townsite company donated two lots for a church site. Dedicated in May 1902, the church seated 100 and held services in German. With a significant growth in membership by 1918, the congregation decided to replace the old church with a new one--the current Gothic Revival style structure in which German services were held until 1953.
