Our Heritage

Born of a rich German heritage in the years just prior to the Civil War, St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church is a small rural church with deep roots.  Located in the rolling hills of Southeastern Indiana, the church is a landmark known by travelers who frequently travel State Road 129 between the towns of Versailles and Cross Plains. St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church is a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Please feel free to join us at any time!

#ThisChangesEverything #ELCAyg2018

Twelve of Olean's finest represented our congregation at the 2018 ELCA Youth Gathering in Houston, Texas, in July.  The group was among 30,000+ ELCA members and friends who participated in large and small worship services, workshops on current topics, and outreach activities throughout the Houston area.

The next ELCA Youth Gathering takes place in 2021 in Minneapolis, and our Luther League is already making plans to attend!

Joy - teaching a younger generation the joy of ringing the church bell.
