...where two or three gather in My name, there am I with them
...but the word of the Lord endures forever
...if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed
Welcome to St. Paul's Lutheran Church
"We, the members of St. Paul's Lutheran, saints through Jesus Christ, give glory to God for His free gift of salvation and personally reach out to the community and the world with this good news."
Welcome to St. Paul’s Lutheran Church! We believe that the door to salvation is always open. Our mission is to be fully devoted to Jesus by opening our arms to those in search of the truth. We show God’s love and concern for our fellow man at every opportunity. Through works of charity and opening our doors to listen and love, we feel that we are walking in the footsteps of Jesus Christ.

Church Text Alerts St. Paul’s now has the capability of sending out notifications by text message to alert the congregation of church cancellations due to weather and events taking place. If you would like to sign up for these alerts, please sign the list on the table in the Narthex. These messages are only successful if we know your cell phone carrier so please be sure to fill this in.
Reminder! The church has the capability of automatically
withdrawing your offerings from your account on a weekly, biweekly, or monthly basis. Let Sara in the office know if you would prefer this method over the offering envelops and she can get you set up.

New Phone System The church has recently switched to Co-Mo Connect for telephone service. As a result, the basement phone on the wall by the kitchen has been retired. There is now a portable phone located in the kitchen next to the refrigerator. Please return the phone to its dock after using so that it stays charged. This phone is for local calls only.
Thank You! Please see the Thank You! page for recent thank you notes received by the church! This page can also be accessed via the Bulletin Board page.
