St. Paul's Lutheran Church

Call Committee Update

All of the required documents for making a call from the LCMS seminaries for a 2018 graduating Pastor were completed and submitted to the Missouri District office late in February. District President Hagan is submitting our call for consideration by the Board of Assignments in April. Call Day is on April 24, in St Louis and April 25 in Fort Wayne, so we will know then whether a placement has been made to St. Paul's. In the meantime, please continue to pray that God works through the call process to bring to St. Paul's the pastor He has already identified to continue preaching and teaching His Word in this place.


Voters' Meeting

The Voters' Meeting will be held on April 15 after the service. 


Man Up!

The world says all sorts of things about what masculinity is, but the Bible says something quite different. Men and boys ages 10-99 are encouraged to attend this continuum of Raising Godly Men brought to you by Capital Area Lutherans for Life of Missouri April 29, 2- 5 p.m. at Calvary Lutheran High School. We are very fortunate to have Rev. Jeffery Hemmer, author of Man Up! The Quest for Masculinity, come and put on this bible study.


Attendance at previous Raising Godly Men bible studies is not necessary to participate in this exciting event! Men, grab your friends, sons, fathers, brothers, nephews, and uncles, and come find out what the Bible says about being a man! Pizza, soda, and dessert will be provided. If you have questions, please contact chapter president, Brenda Rathmann, at 573-301-1303.
