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.

Security Measures
Please remember that the front entrance will remain accessible before, during and after worship service but all other doors (basement & side doors) will be locked 10 minutes after services begin. Our church is committed to making sure everyone arrives and leaves our services safely and these measures have been taken to provide a safe and secure place for our congregation to worship.
