Welcome to St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, ELCA

Beloved children of God, welcome to St. Paul's Lutheran Church. We are a community of believers in Christ. Anyone who wishes to know Christ's peace, joy, forgiveness and love is heartily received at our worship services and at our congregational events.  We are actively asking the Spirit of the Risen Christ to transform us into the church that brings God's mercy to the world.              

Holy Communion
The Lord Jesus Christ is host of the table at St. Paul's. All who believe that Jesus is truly present in this bread and wine and commune in their home congregations are welcome to share our feast.






Mission and Vision

Mission Statement
We are guided by the Holy Spirit in a Christ-centered mission to love and serve God, those in need and one another.

Vision Statement
God's vision for St. Paul's is to become a place where we love and trust God, love one another and bear witness to God's life-transforming grace. Filled with the spirit, we are excited about going into the community to share the good news of Jesus Christ with all people. We continue to strengthen our faith by serving others.

Reflection on Lessons
Christians in Corinth prided themselves on their spiritual gifts. Paul reminds them that God gives us many gifts through the Holy Spirit, but the purpose behind all of them is love, the kind of love that God showed us in Jesus Christ.

Scripture Verse
Paul uses images from Hebrew story and prophecy to speak the truth of Jesus Christ. He is our rock, our water, our food and our drink. Christ is the living sign of God's faithfulness
