congregations of the Decatur Circuit LCMS are excited to invite you to
join us for our 500th Anniversary of the Reformation Celebration! The congregations in our circuit date back to the early 1800's and three are charter congregations of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod organized in 1847.
Our oldest congregations were founded by the grace of our Lord, Jesus Christ, through
the missionary efforts of Rev. Hoover, Rev. Wyneken, and Rev. Hussman. For
over 179 years, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, has faithfully
preserved His church in the Decatur area through His ministry of Word
and Sacraments. He created and grows our congregations through the
waters of Holy Baptism and sustains and strengthens His holy flock
through the true proclamation of His Divine Word and the proper
administration of His holy body and blood in the Lord's Supper.
If you do not already have a church home, we invite and encourage you
to worship at one of our congregations and consider joining our family of faith.
