What to Expect

Visiting a church for the first time can be a nerve-racking experience.

Here’s a list of Frequently Asked Questions to help make a visit to St. Paul’s a little bit easier.

Traditional Church Service

Did you say Traditional?  Yes!  St. Paul’s has a traditional church service and we sing a lot of hymns! We also have bible readings, prayers and a sermon.  Our services usually go for about an hour.  Don’t be intimidated – we would love to have you come and worship with us and get to know our church family!

Frequently Asked Questions

If you’re planning to come to St. Paul’s for service on Sunday mornings, Sunday School/Bible study starts at 8:30am and our service begins at 9:30am. We suggest arriving a bit earlier to find a parking space and walk to our building.  Our greeters will be available at the front entrance to help you with questions and greet you with a smile!

It’s hard to give an exact time as our song and talk lengths can vary from week to week, but our services generally last around 60 minutes with communion Sundays being a little longer.  However we’d love you to stick around a little after so we can get to know you (and so you can get to know us!)

Before each service, beginning at 8:30, we have topical classes centered on the Word of God.  There are classes for each grade for kids, and usually 2 different Bible Study classes for adults.  

Of course!  We have Sunday School classes before each service for your children to attend, and everyone is welcome in our worship services.  We also have a “cry room” where you can take your children during worship if they’re fussy and you can still view the service.

Absolutely not!  Anyone and everyone is welcome to attend!

We have communion on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month

Communion at St. Paul’s is for all confirmed, Missouri Synod Lutherans.  Why do we do this?  We believe that in the Lord’s Supper that we receive the true body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Because those who eat and drink our Lord’s body and blood unworthily do so to their great harm and because Holy Communion is a confession of our faith.

If you do desire to receive this sacrament, please plan to arrive early for the service and speak first with a pastor or elder.
