We are located at 1656 Main Street in Strasburg, Colorado. Use the handy map for directions, and come and worship Sundays at 8:30 a.m.! Whether you are looking for a church home, spending a night at the KOA Camp, or wanting a place to drop in and worship when the mood strikes, you are welcome at Saron!
P.S. Our services are early enough that you can worship and still get home in time to watch 11 a.m. NFL football!
Pastor Julie Brooks
Pastor Julie Brooks is a native Coloradan, educated in Minnesota at St. Olaf and Luther Seminary. She has three children, a husband, and a small dog named Mo, and enjoys outdoor activities. She was ordained in 1997 having been called to Advent in Westminster, Rejoice in Erie, and now Saron in Strasburg where she strives to help people enter into the mystery of God in our midst.
Saron Lutheran Church was established in Adams County by Norwegian immigrants in 1911. They first met at Hill Top School and chartered as "Saron Sandinavisk Lutherisk Menighed." The name was changed to its present day form on December 8, 1920. "Saron" is Norwegian for "Sharon," a reference to the Sharon Plain which constitutes the northern half of the coastal plain of modern-day Israel, from Mount Carmel to Tel Aviv. It is mentioned in the Bible and seemed appropriate for a church established on the High Plains of Eastern Colorado.
After meeting for a time at the Strasburg Hotel, Saron built a church in 1941 at 1656 Main Street in Strasburg. Through the fundraising of the Women's group, two additions have been made over the years to accomodate the growing numbers of attendees and the need for fellowship.
Located on a great interstate, Saron Lutheran Church continues to serve God and the local community, nomads and homesteaders alike.
