And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose (Romans 8:28).
Lutherans have a long history in the community of Henty. We have been worshipping at the site of St Paul's Church in Lyne Street for over 100 years and before that in homes and other churches around Henty.
Some of the first settlers to the Henty area were second generation German Lutherans who came to the Riverina from South Australia in search of new farming lands. After settling in an area, the first order of business for Lutherans was to build a church to worship in and then to build a school to educate their children – often in the 'middle of nowhere'. And so it was with Henty, with a church built in 1913 and a school established in 1930.
Today St Paul's congregation has fourth and fifth generation members of the original farmer settlers, and you'll find St Paul's as a place of country hospitality where everyone is welcomed to worship. St Paul's School also continues to educate children of the community in a safe and secure place where every child is valued and Christ is at the centre of everything we do.
