Visitors are always welcome at St. Paul Lutheran Church. We know that visiting a new place for the first time can be a bit intimidating, so we've put together some information to help you feel more at home when you visit. Please contact us if you have any questions. See you Sunday morning!
Where is St. Paul Lutheran Church located? We are located "on the island," just across from the "Y." Click here for a Google map.
When are your worship services? Sunday morning services are at 8:00 and 10:30 a.m. from the Sunday after Labor Day through the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. Summer services are at 9:00 a.m. Our Calendar is always a good place to check for current information!
What time is Sunday school? Our Christian Education hour meets from 9:15 - 10:15 a.m. during the school year. We have offerings for all ages, including adults. Our nursery is available for those children who are too young to participate in Sunday school.

What should I expect when I arrive? You can expect plenty of parking and a handicapped accessible building. Ushers and greeters are always available and will seat you, give you a bulletin, and answer any questions you may have. We also have a staffed Information Booth. Be sure to stop by and pick up a Visitor's Bag which is filled with information about St. Paul Lutheran.
What should I wear? Worshippers at St. Paul Lutheran wear anything from jeans and t-shirts to suits and ties. Wear what you're comfortable in...God accepts us for who we are, not what we wear!
What about the kids? Children are always welcome in worship and children's bulletins are available to help reinforce the day's lessons. We also have a fully staffed Nursery available each Sunday morning from 9:00 a.m. until noon.
Will I know what to do in the service? Yes. Our bulletins contain everything you need to know to follow along in the service. Also included in the bulletin are the week's announcements and ministry opportunities.
What about Communion? All who are baptized are welcome to take Communion and the Pastors always give instructions regarding Communion, so there is no need to worry!
What about "the offering?" Each week the offering plates are passed during the service, providing our members with an opportunity to respond to God's call to return a portion of what they've been given back to God. Visitors are not expected to make an offering, but are welcome to do so if they choose.
