Welcome to St. Paul's Lutheran Church, a small church with a big heart. We are a community of believers in Christ.  Anyone who wishes to know Christ's peace, joy, forgiveness and love is heartily received at our worship services and at our congregational events.  We are actively asking the Spirit of the Risen Christ to transform us into the church that brings God's mercy to the world.

Mission and Vision

Mission Statement

We are guided by the Holy Spirit in a Christ-centered mission to love and serve God, those in need and one another.

Vision Statement

God's vision for St. Paul's is to become a place where we love and trust God, love one another and bear witness to God's life-transforming grace. Filled with the spirit, we are excited about going into the community to share the good news of Jesus Christ with all people. We continue to strengthen our faith by serving others.


Sermons are available in CD form for delivery to your home.   Please contact the Church office to set up this service.

Reflection on Lessons

In reference to Ephesians 3:14-21, we have been rooted and grounded in the love of Christ, which surpasses all human knowledge. Because Christ dwells in our hearts, our lives are continuously strengthened and empowered by the ongoing presence of the Spirit.


Paul writes about love in Romans, Chapter 12:9-13. "Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another beyond yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with God's people who are in need. Practice hospitality."

Mission Emphasis

Causeway Interfaith Volunteer Caregivers

CIVC is a neighbors-helping-neighbors program funded through donations from participating faith congregations, businesses, individuals, and fundraising events. Services are provided without charge within the Causeway (geographical) area, regardless of faith affiliation, sex, or ethnic background.

CIVC is run completely by volunteers. Its mission is "In our world today, it is easy for neighbors to lose touch with neighbors. Causeway exists to develop caring communities in which neighbors share time and skills in response to the needs of each other." A volunteer is matched with an older adult or an individual with disabilities in order to give assistance as needed, enabling recipients to maintain a sense of well-being and independence in their own homes.
