WHO WE ARE

 

We are part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), a church body with nearly four million members, in nearly 10,000 congregations.

As Christians, we have a radical focus on God's unconditional love and amazing grace shown to us in Jesus Christ.

We believe that we are freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor. With our hands, we do God's work of restoring and reconciling communities in Jesus' name throughout the world.

To learn more about what we believe as Lutheran Christians, visit the ELCA website.

Be our guest for social time each Sunday after worship, which could include coffee, cookies and conversation, or a planned activity in the Fellowship Hall. We'll get to know each other! (This activity has been temporarily postponed due to COVID-19 restrictions.)

Let us pray,

God of grace and love, you created us as your children and have brought us to St. Paul Lutheran Church. We are not perfect people, but this church is the perfect place for imperfect people. Thank you for your grace through Christ given to us. You call us to proclaim to everyone we meet that your grace is for them too. As a Holy Spirit-led family of God, we ask you to help us joyfully share your word and serve your people, so that together our lives make a difference in your kingdom here on earth. Strengthen us in our mission together; through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
