WHAT WE DO

Our approach to community engagement stems from God's words in the Bible. We believe that building relationships first, we can bring people together in a true sense of belonging based on personal authenticity rather than expectations and standards. Our members support mission work that is international as well as local in our own backyard through The Closet, Caring & Sharing Hands, and our new Blessings Box. Every Sunday morning we gather for worship. Throughout the week, members of all ages come together for educational experiences that grow their faith and make our church stronger. 


Together, we are intentionally discussing and mindfully planning what the future of the church looks like. How do we better support our local community members while also offering outreach beyond our small community? What roots can help us sustain the essence of St. Paul's while introducing new, creative ways to develop our spiritual practices as Lutherans? We invite new voices, different perspectives, and people from all walks of life to get involved at St. Paul's Lutheran Church for personal and community faith formation.
