Welcome to Our Parish

United in Christ, Sharing God's Love

The name ‘Northwoods STaR Ministries’ was chosen because our churches are nestled in Wisconsin’s north woods. Just as this area has many varieties of trees, we have four unique congregations and many members, all of whom are faithfully rooted in Christ. “STaR” stands for Small Town and Rural, and this image reminds us of the star of Bethlehem, drawing us to Jesus. Our parish is united through many ministries and is open to finding new ways to reach out to our communities, sharing God’s love.

What to Expect at Our Services

Our Sunday morning worship services are for people of all ages. Northwoods STaR Ministries uses the Evangelical Lutheran Worship hymnal for songs and liturgy and follows a traditional service style. 

Silent Night Project

Your pastors are planning to put together a Christmas Eve worship video (in addition to whatever else is happening in the parish). We’d like to add a special touch to it by including as many voices of our people as possible, including children, in singing Silent Night. If you want to participate, contact Pastor Steve (pastorsteve@1stfamily.org). After receiving the special instructions, you’ll make an audio recording of yourself on your smartphone, tablet, or computer, and then your voice will be combined with all the others and included in the video. You do not need to be a “good” singer. If you usually sing in church, or in the shower, your voice is plenty good enough.

Video Sermons

We have begun to record our services for those who cannot make it to the regular worship times. Please join us in watching our online worship service each week.
