SUNDAY MORNINGS 9:30-10:30amNo registration needed

LOCATION: School gym


This summer Pastors Thomas, Thomson, and Wade lead a verse-by-verse study of the third Gospel that emphasizes the birth, life, death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus, including a significant amount of material that is unique to Luke. The desired result of the class for participants is the same as Luke’s stated purpose in writing the Gospel: “That you may have certainty concerning the things you have been taught” (1:4).


Listen to the Bible study broadcast live each Sunday at 9:30 a.m. on KFUO 850AM radio in the St. Louis region. Outside of St. Louis, listen live online at KFUO.org.


Note that the Book of Romans study, led by Rev. Dr. David Smith, will resume in the fall.

PRAYER GROUP

pray-ers for peace

1st & 3rd WEDNESDAYS AT 1:00pm

FORMAT: In person

LOCATION: Mount Calvary Lutheran Church at 9321 Litzsinger Road, 63144. Conference room.


You're invited to join in a prayer group led by St. Paul's member and LCMS deaconess Gayle Truesdell; although held at Mount Calvary, St. Paul's members are warmly welcomed to attend.


Deaconess Truesdell shares, "As Christians, we struggle to find our way through these difficult times. What can we do to make things better? I believe that prayer — fervent and faithful — is our greatest tool for peace right now."


Details

The prayer group will start with a short devotion about prayer and then join together to pray for our nation’s elected leaders, appointed leaders, unity, civil discussions, consensus on national purposes, tolerance, equal justice, non-violence or any issues which might arise in the future. 


The prayer group is not a forum for political debate; no one should come intending to argue for any particular viewpoint. We come to kneel before our Lord.

faith foundations

what we believe

To join our next class contact Envelope  Pastor Wade


Delve into the basics of the Christian faith and what Lutherans believe.  All are welcome, whether to refresh your understanding or to learn something new.


Led by Pastor Wade, the class offers a comfortable setting and comprehensive teaching on foundations of the Lutheran faith, including Baptism, Communion, the 10 Commandments, the Lord’s Prayer, the Apostles' Creed, and the Office of the Keys.


There is no charge for What We Believe, and no obligation to become a member of St. Paul’s after completing the learning course, but those who agree with the doctrine presented and who would like to become a member of St. Paul’s will be happily received into membership via adult confirmation.
