You Are Welcomed at St. Paul Lutheran
First of all, we want to say that "You're Very Welcomed!" We hope you will feel right at home as we worship together. If you are searching for a Christ-centered and Gospel-based church home, we'd like you to know that there's a special place here just for you.
A Place for Friendship: Nothing quite compares to the joy of Christian friendship. That's why we make it a priority to build lasting bonds between the members of our church family – bonds of concern and genuine commitment to one another. Best of all, this circle of care is ever widening. We'd love for it to include you, too.
A Place for Learning: To us, studying the Bible is vital because it not only instructs us intellectually and guides us spiritually, but most importantly, it points us to Christ our Savior. We accept the Bible as God's holy Word to humanity, a Book that is alive and relevant to life today. Learning its truths and believing the Good News of Jesus Christ is a life-changing and thrilling adventure.
A Place for Enrichment: For every person of every age level we offer a wealth of opportunities – special programs and ministries for children, youth, and adults which fill the church calendar. You can be sure that in this kaleidoscope of activities there's more than one place where you can be personally enriched. We have an excellent Preschool that is spoken highly about in the City of Pipestone and our surrounding communities. We also have an excellent choir that adds to our worship services. It warmly welcomes new members who enjoy lifting up Christ in song and music. We have a vital Youth Ministry that reaches out to others and meets Sundays (Jr. S.P.Y.) and Wednesdays (Sr. S.P.Y.), and a new adult group called SAGES – "SAINTS ALIVE, GROWING, EVER SERVING" – for the seniors of our congregation to enjoy monthly Bible study, fellowship, and fun activities. A woman Bible class meets the third Monday of the month with the DCE and provides spiritual nourishment and support to young mothers and others.
A Place for Service: Just as Christ came not to be served, but to serve, we accept our responsibility to reach out in service to others. This applies both within the church family and outside our fellowship. We have a wonderful connection with Lutheran Hour Ministries® and the Lutheran Women's Missionary League which provide a wealth of Christian growth and service activities for our members. Short-term mission trips to Jamaica and Panama are available for adults and youth.
A Place for Worship: When we go to God's house for worship, we go to meet God, to interact with Him, and express our thanks for His love in Jesus Christ and Him crucified. That's the meaning of worship. It's always centered around Word and Sacrament – the means by which He comes and builds us up. Each worship occasion is a special time of spiritual refreshment with Christ at its center. We hope this is what you will experience in our fellowship.
