Called "Living Stone," our gym service is a Christ-centered liturgical worship service.

Children's puppet message in our main church service

Children are an important part of our church family! 

Kids gather for a puppet show message that brings to life the Bible reading of the day. 

Catch the puppets on the second Sunday of each month in our 8:00 and 10:45 a.m. services, in the main church.

Each Sunday, we have children's clipboards ready with crayons and Bible activity pages.

Children's MEssage in our Living Stone Service

Each Sunday at our 10:45 Living Stone service in the gym, children are invited to gather round for a kid-size Gospel message, just for them.

We have children's clipboards ready with crayons and Bible activity pages; just ask an usher. 

Where is St. paul's?

It's our 170th birthday!

St. Paul's was founded in 1849 by a group of German Lutheran immigrants. The first church building was a log cabin not far from where our present day church is located. 

This log cabin served both as a place of worship and a school. Over the next 170 years, St. Paul's would grow to a large congregation with two campuses, one on each side of that first church site. 

Throughout its history, this church has reached out and and touched the lives of not only the West County community, but far beyond - even to many foreign countries - with the Gospel. Our mission is to strengthen the saved; save the lost.

Our history is the history of God keeping His promises to His children. God has been faithful to the people of St. Paul's as He has come to them through His Word, Holy Baptism, and the Lord's Supper.
