Join us for an in-depth study of Colossians, led by Rev. Dr. David Smith. The apostle Paul wrote to the church in Colossae to fortify it against false teachers; in his epistle he shows the superiority of Christ over all human philosophies and traditions, and writes of Christ’s deity.

PRAYER GROUP | 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."

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."
