Worship at St. Paul's Lutheran Church
We feel that worship is one of the most important things we do at St. Paul’s. And because of that, we are committed to relevant, excellent, authentic and God-honoring worship. All of our services hold in common the clear teaching of the Bible, prayer, communion and praise through music. Our services differ in the type of music they offer. St. Paul’s provides worship services with traditional, organ-led music, and also services with contemporary, band and praise team led music. We seek to honor our great God in all of our services with music that stirs the heart of every worshipper to a closer walk with our risen Savior Jesus Christ.

At St. Paul's we plan worship services thematically, and the God honoring music and the Jesus focused message all point to the theme of that worship service. Our current series is entitled "Forever Family". As we head toward the celebration of our 150th Anniversary in 2014, we are not only thinking about our own history and church family, but also what it means to be a part of God's family and all of the things we face as a part of that family. In October, we continue by looking at "Facing Family Failures" - all of the challenges we may encounter within our families, such as facing resentment, facing divorce, facing infidelity, and facing addictions. In November, we begin to look at "Parenting 101".
