MORE THAN A CHURCH... A COMMUNITY
Welcome to Saint Paul! In this community, you will be warmly welcomed, just the way you are. We're glad you're here.
We are a Reconciling in Christ congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Reconciling in Christ means that our community is a safe and welcoming place for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender people and for People of Color, including our Black and Indigenous neighbors. The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America is our denominational body. "Evangelical" means we are called to share the good news of God's love in Jesus Christ. "Lutheran" refers to our historic connection to Martin Luther and his contemporaries, who reformed the Church over 500 years ago, returning us to a community founded on the unconditional grace of God. The ELCA is the largest Lutheran denomination in the USA, and is the only Lutheran organization in this country to welcome women and LGBTQIA+ people to participate in the life and leadership of the church at all levels.
The community of St. Paul welcomes all people to help us share the unconditional love of God in Christ Jesus. We can accomplish a lot on our own. But together, we are revealing something greater than ourselves: the Kingdom of God, where all are loved, accepted, fed, housed, clothed, cared for, and safe. Let's grow together!
"In the presence of God, nothing stands between God and us – we are forgiven. But we cannot feel God's presence if anything is allowed to stand between ourselves and others."
