Pastor Shawn and Faye Kauffeld invite you to come and worship with us. You will find our congregation to be a friendly church with a love for the Word of God. The Lord said, "Come unto me all you who labor and are heavy ladened and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn of me for my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
From 1870 to 1878 the people of Beyer Settlement conducted services in the Public School House. In 1876 they purchased land alongside
the school to build a church. In February 1878 the pastor and assembly organized itself into a congregation and took on the name of
St. Katherine’s Evangelical Lutheran Church.
In August of 1898, the congregation decided to buy an acre of land for a parsonage. In 1899, after completing the parsonage, school
was held in the kitchen. In November 1912, the congregation decided to build a new church building. The work was completed in
August 1913 and on the 17th of August worship was held in the new church. In 1925 electricity was installed in the church and
the parsonage. In 1928 a pipe organ was dedicated for use in the service and water works were built in the parsonage.
In 1939 Electricity from R.E.A. was upgraded in the church and parsonage. In 1947 the Congregation added one-half acre of land to the
cemetery. In November 1963 the Ladies Aid paid for the installation of running water into the church, the water was pumped from the
well at the parsonage. In July 1977 new carpet was put in the church and the congregation voted to install bathrooms in the basement
of the church.
