First Presbyterian is a strong, vibrant, and friendly church located in the wonderful rural town of Lodi, Wisconsin. Our church is currently home to almost 300 people, and our membership is a beautiful blend of the demographics of Lodi and the surrounding communities, serving people from Dane, Okee, Harmony Grove, Prairie du Sac, Waunakee, DeForest, Arlington, Town of Windsor, and Poynette. We are a member of the Presbyterian Church (USA) and of John Knox Presbytery.
We strive to display our love, faith and joy to those we meet, sharing the Lord with others in many ways. We practice acceptance and compassion by loving, serving and welcoming all into our church “family”. On any Sunday, you may see business dress to blue jeans, sandals to cowboy boots, as we encourage all to “come as you are.” That atmosphere applies to attire as well as where you are personally in your spiritual journey – we want to worship the Lord with you – just as you are!
Established in 1852, Lodi Presbyterian has a long history in Lodi and in the Presbyterian denomination. Noted for our huge, gorgeous stained glass windows, ours is an historic building at a location easy to find. We are proud of our history, our service to the Lord, and our church family.
Our church facilities include our traditional historic sanctuary and the education and fellowship addition added in 1993, as well as our manse (home) located next to the church (where our church custodian currently resides). We have elevators and disability access to all facilities, ample parking and a nursery.
Located just west of downtown Lodi, take Lodi St. west as you come to the four-way stop in downtown Lodi where Main St (Hwy 113) and Lodi St (Hwy 60) cross. We are nestled on top of a hill, just past the railroad tracks at 258 Lodi St. You’ll see our church sign, stone building and beautiful windows and you’ll know you’re home!
