Welcome...

We welcome you to our website.  We invite you to browse the site and learn more about us and what we have to offer at St. Paul Lutheran Church.   Please contact us if you have any questions or want further information.

Sunday worship schedule

 We look forward to continuing our 9 a.m. worship service each Sunday. We’ve been operating with this single-service format since January. Our worship services each month, as a rule, will continue to have one Sunday that is fairly traditional and one Sunday that is more of an alternative style and the other Sundays will be a mix of the two. Holy Communion is served every Sunday and is open to all.  When it comes to Wednesdays, our "Prayer/Share with Holy Communion" time, where we share prayer, sharing from our personal lives, and Holy Communion, will be from 5:30 - 6:10 p.m.   In general, it seems like the bell choir will be present to help lead and contribute to worship once a month and the choir will participate twice a month. As we are able to do so, we’ll bring special music pieces in, as well. That’s what’s new in the area of worship and music!  All are welcome!  We hope you will come and join us!

We offer Sunday School and an Adult Forum time each Sunday during the school year.  Sunday School and Adult Forum meet from 10:15 - 11:15 a.m.  There is also a coffee fellowship time starting at 10:15 a.m.  All are welcome.

Our Sunday School year has begun!  But, there is still time to join the fun!  Sunday School is each Sunday from 10:15 - 11:15 a.m.  All are welcome!  To register, online, click the link below.  For more information, check on the Sunday School section under the Faith Formation tab.  If you have any questions, contact Amy Peterson at 651-439-5970 ext. 14 or apeterson@stpaullc.org

We are looking for volunteers to join our usher teams and serve as ushers for our Sunday morning worship services.  It is not a difficult job - the ushers greet people as they go into the sanctuary; they hand out the bulletins; they help collect the offering; they count how many are in attendance; they help dismiss and direct people as they go forward for communion; they pick up the attendance sheets after worship; and keep a general eye on the congregation to make sure everyone is ok and give directions and/or answer questions if needed.  Ushers can be male or female.  Each usher team ushers one Sunday every-other month, with an occasional fifth Sunday of a month and/or a special service during a holiday such as Thanksgiving Eve, Easter, Christmas.  Please prayerfully consider sharing your time and talent in this way.  If you have questions or are interested in joining an usher team, please contact Hank at 651-342-0242 or call the church office at 651-439-5970.  Thank you!

Communion – not just for Sundays

Did you know that your church offers communion by request during the week too?  This is great for those times you travel, but also for those who work on the weekends.  We are more than happy to offer this on a need basis.  Please call the church office to schedule with a pastor.

Prayer Requests
We would like to invite you to share with us any prayer requests or concerns that you may have.  You may chose whether these prayer request are used in our Sunday service prayer time, or if you want them kept more private.  You may also chose if you want a pastor to contact you for personal prayer or to answer questions or provide help in any other way.  Click the link below to go to the prayer request form . . .
