St. Paul Lutheran Church`s mission statement is “to be an expression of God`s compassion in our community and beyond.” We feel called as a body under the evangelical Christian faith to proclaim God`s word to all inside our realm of influence, through both word, and action. We commit our lives to Christ, and strive to exemplify His Spirit through our worship, ministry, and example. All are welcome to join us. Children's Church meets on Sundays at 10:30 a.m. during the contemporary worship. Worship Services are the Traditional Service held on Saturdays at 5:30 p.m., the Liturgical Service held on Sundays at 9:00 a.m. and our Contemporary Service held at 10:30. Come and be inspired. 
At St. Paul, we offer a wide range of events and groups for people of all ages and interests. From youth programs to senior activities, there is something for everyone. We also provide opportunities for community service and outreach, so that we can share God's love with those around us. Additionally, we have a variety of worship services throughout the week, including traditional and contemporary services, as well as special services during the holidays. Whether you are a long-time member or new to the area, we welcome you to join us at St. Paul.
