Christian Education

The church of Jesus Christ is in partnership with each child, teen, and adult in sharing faith and fellowship, celebrating baptism in daily life, and practicing servanthood in God’s kingdom on earth. St. Paul’s Lutheran Church is a place where God’s children come to meet Jesus, grow in relationship with God and one another, be fed at God’s table, and go out into the world to live, love and serve.
“Take the church home with you” is our faith formation philosophy. Come to church and participate in worship, hear God’s stories, and learn to nurture the gift of faith inside and outside the church community. St. Paul’s congregation learns and lives as baptized, forgiven people called into faith practice. We proclaim in word and deed God’s good gifts for us.
