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."

In person worship services resume May 16, 2020. Please see letter from our Board of Elders dated 5/8/20 posted on our Bulletin Board page for more information regarding specific dates, times and other instructions.

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.


Saturday 6:30 p.m.
Sunday 9:00 a.m. (this service will also be available via Facebook Livestream)

Please join us at 9:00 a.m. this Sunday for Worship Service broadcast on KRLL 1420AM radio. For those out of the area, you can access this radio station via https://mytuner-radio.com/radio/krll-1420-am-435192/ or by clicking below.

    I rejoiced with those who said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord.”  PSALM 122:1
    With in person services beginning again, please grant mercy to one another. Most of us will not get to sit in our favorite seat or visit as long as we would like, but what a blessing to be able to gather again! We are still learning what works and what doesn’t work the best.  A few items of note:

    • At this time we will NOT be holding Sunday School classes.
    • The choir loft is a confined area and should only be used by the organist, musicians and video recorder.
    • Socializing in the Narthex should be minimized. Please try to keep the area in front of the mailboxes open.
    • Beginning May 11, 2020, various Boards can begin having their regular meetings. All Social Distancing regulations should be followed.

    Please keep in mind that we are trying different arrangements for the safety of all members.  We are open to suggestions and we appreciate your patience and support, both in past weeks and in the days to come.
