St. Paul’s Lutheran Church

St. Paul’s Lutheran Church and School strives to respond to the Great Commission by equipping and empowering its members to share the Good News of Jesus Christ to their families, the community, and the world.  St. Paul’s Lutheran Church is a congregation of growing people – growing in our love for the Lord Jesus Christ. Our love binds us into a family that cares about the community.  We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, revealing Jesus Christ as our Savior. He paid for our sins by dying on the cross, so that all who believe in Him will live forever.  Our desire is that you can find a home here in the St. Paul’s family, a home that will be nurturing, loving, and supportive.

St. Paul’s is affiliated with the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, a network of over 6000 congregations all over the world.  Our staff is made up of a group of dedicated Christian people who are here to serve you. Our church office is open from 9am to 4pm Monday – Friday. Please feel free to call, email or fax with any questions you may have.
