Wouldn't it be great......to be part of a community whose chief goal is trust in the Grace of Jesus?...to be in a communion who refused to compromise the Christian Scriptures?...to have shepherds who prioritize the growth of your Faith, rather than the growth of their pocketbooks?
What if......we resisted paganism, rather than catered to it?...we raised Christians with Truth, rather than tried to trick them with fun?...we weren't afraid of sharing what the Bible actually says?...we remembered that mercy and duty are not mutually exclusive?...we still believed in Judgment Day?
By More People.
In More Places.
St. Paul Lutheran Church equips all its members to know what they believe and why they believe it, so that whether next door or across the world, we countermand our age of anti-truth with a firm trust in the Words and Sacraments of Jesus Christ.
St Paul is a church where we take seriously the needs of our community and try to serve to the best of our abilities. If this is what you're looking for then this is the community of faith is for you! Come and see!
First of all our mission at St. Paul is to recognize that "We are imperfect people risking it all to make Jesus real...one life at a time."
We just want to say how privileged we are to have you visiting our Church website. We consider visitors to our church a very important gauge of the health and vibrancy of our congregation. I think that you will find here at St. Paul a family of faith that is caring, loving, and most importantly Christ-centered in its worship life.
We at St. Paul feel that in today’s Post-Modern society, to have a place to come and worship that is firmly grounded in the truth of God’s holy Word is a rare find. We are a strong Bible-based, Bible-believing church, that understands clearly from God’s Word, that we are saved by grace through faith alone in our Lord Jesus Christ and not by works which we do.
Here at St. Paul our worship services are liturgical in nature, meaning that they are structured on the church’s historic liturgy, which is nothing more than spoken, chanted, prayed, and sung Scripture. With this in mind, the more you love Scripture, the more you love the church’s liturgy—hence the more you will love the worship services at St. Paul.
We celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion every Sunday and at every high Church Festival. It is an opportunity for us, as the body of Christ, to confess our unity and our love for each other and binds us together as a family in Christ.
If you are searching for a new church home or would like to learn more about St. Paul, you always have an open invitation to worship with us, attend Bible study with us, and come to the Adult Information class to learn more about membership here at our church.
Again, it was our privilege to have you visit us on the St. Paul website! We strive to be a church where families come together to worship, praise, serve, and love God and each other. The Lord be with you and we invite you to come back and visit often!
We offer Sunday school each week at 9:00 a.m., midweek Bible school (2nd-5th grades) on Wednesdays at 4:45-6:15 p.m., and Confirmation (5th-8th grades) on Wednesdays at 5:00-6:00 p.m.
Studying God's Word has a central place at St. Paul. We believe that we are saved by grace through faith in our Savior Jesus Christ, and not by our works. We hear the Word and then we go and bear fruit in our homes, workplaces, and community.
If you would like to know more about St. Paul please leave your email address and we will contact you right away.
