Welcome!

St. Paul's is a rural small-town church faithfully proclaiming the good news of Jesus Christ in Word and Sacrament, prayer and fellowship, education and outreach. 

What We Believe

We believe in God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth,
and in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell. The third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty. From thence he will come to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.

Adult Bible study

with Pastor Rapp at 8:00 AM


Sunday School at 10:00 AM 

September through mid-May


Catechism and Bible Classes for Youth
Wednesday nights at 6:30 PM - September-May

Christian education is vital in this age when the faith is being challenged everywhere. We invite students from 6th through 8th grades to become firmly grounded in their faith through study of the Bible and Luther's Small Catechism. 

Sixth-grade students study major events, people, and concepts in the Bible, learning how the Old and New Testaments together present Jesus Christ as God With Us and as the promised Messiah. They memorize the names of the books of the Bible, key Bible verses, prayers, and elements of the catechism. In addition, students begin learning how to listen to sermons for Christ-centered content.

Seventh- and eighth-grade students focus intently on the six chief parts of the catechism as preparation for both Confirmation and lifelong faith. They memorize the catechism, with Luther's explanations, and learn how the doctrines of Law and Gospel pervade the Bible, how Scripture shapes and enriches liturgy, and how good sermons focus on Christ and his work on our behalf. 

Classes are held September through May, with examination and confirmation of 8th-grade students usually occurring in May.

Lord, I love the habitation of your house and the place where your glory dwells.
--Psalm 26:8
