What Should I Expect?
When you come to St. Paul’s, you can expect to find loving and caring people enthusiastically offering praise to God, earnestly praying for His help, and eagerly learning how His Word can help them grow in faith and wisdom. That being said, please don’t expect that the people here will always live up to this ideal. We are a people with the highest of goals and standards, but we all fall short of them. We accept this while striving to do better.
At St. Paul’s, you can expect to find age, racial and cultural diversity in a church that also reflects its Lutheran heritage. Our history and traditions are important to us even as we explore new ways of expressing the faith. Most of us like to dress up for worship, but we don’t make it a rule. We strive to know and use the content of our hymnal in worship, but we also use resources beyond it. We seek to make guests and newcomers feel welcome. We love to have children in our worship services, though we also provide a nursery for the youngest children to allow parents and others who worship to participate fully in the service.
You can expect that our office will be open and available to you from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Monday through Friday, and that if you write us a note or leave us a voicemail message, we will get back to you quickly.
You can expect that a pastor will be there to visit with you if you make an appointment, and that you will be welcomed at all worship services and activities, regardless of whether you are a member or not. We will follow up with you, and will encourage you to make the commitment of church membership here or someplace else.
You can expect that the Word of God will inform all that we do and say.
