a brief history of st. paul's lutheran church & school

This year we will celebrate the 170th anniversary of the founding of St. Paul's by German Lutheran immigrants. This course surveys the history of St. Paul's from its start in a log cabin to the present. We will look at the role of our congregation and school in the Lutheran Church in the St. Louis area and beyond. A variety of topics will be presented by Dr. Gerry Bode, including the founding of the congregation, the transition to English, and our involvement in Gospel outreach and human care ministries. Through the decades, God has richly blessed our congregation and school, and we are confident of His faithfulness in the future! Class will be held on Tuesdays at 7:00pm, beginning February 5, and meet in Fellowship Hall. Everyone is invited.

learning to pray with jesus

Tuesdays, April 10, 17, 24 and May 1, 7:00 pm, Fellowship Hall

The first disciples asked Jesus to teach them to pray (Luke 11:1). Since people around the world pray, we might wonder whether there is really anything to be learned. If prayer is simply talking to God, then anyone who can speak can already pray. There is some truth in that, but Jesus didn't scoff at the disciples' question. Instead, He taught them prayer. In these sessions, participants will have the opportunity to join them in learning prayer from Jesus. 


This session will be led by Rev. Larry Vogel, who has served as associate executive director of the Commission on Theology and Church Relations for The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod since 2009. Prior to that, Vogel served as pastor of Martin Luther Chapel in Pennsauken, NJ for 18 years. He has authored articles, sermons, and book reviews published in journals of both LCMS seminaries and other theological publications.
