About St. Paul Today


The St. Paul congregation is celebrating its second century of service to God and the community. St. Paul is a member church of the SELC District of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod (LCMS). We are an evangelical (Gospel-centered) church, rooted in the Scriptures and dedicated to the mission of our Lord Jesus Christ




Ladies Society


Our Lutheran Women's Society, which is affiliated with the Lutheran Women's Missionary League of the LCMS meets on the second Tuesday of each month, except January and during the summer. The LWS is a vital organization within St. Paul. The ladies hold fundraisers to support both St. Paul and charitable organizations. Our most popular fund raisers are our semi-annual Rummage Sales in March and October. The ladies provide support to local FISH & SHIP chapters, Lutheran Haven, Bethesda Home, and the Salvation Army to name a few.

Church Council


The Church Council's primary responsibility is the business of operating our church. They sponsor the annual Spaghetti dinner each October and host a Pancake Breakfast every Palm Sunday and on fifth Sundays throughout the year, with funds raised going towards designated Mission projects. Our biggest outreach event is the Christmas Party held for Franklin House --- a transitional program for homeless single mothers and their children.



We Believe


With the universal Christian Church, The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod teaches and responds to the love of the Triune God: the Father, creator of all that exists; Jesus Christ, the Son, who became human to suffer and die for the sins of all human beings and to rise to life again in the ultimate victory over death and Satan; and the Holy Spirit, who creates faith through God's Word and Sacraments. The three persons of the Trinity are coequal and coeternal, one God.


Being "Lutheran," our congregation accepts and teaches Bible-based teachings of Martin Luther that inspired the reformation of the Christian Church in the 16th century. The teaching of Luther and the reformers can be summarized in three short phrases:

Grace alone, Scripture alone, Faith alone.
