2020 NEW school dedication & tour

August 16, 2020 marked a major milestone in St. Paul's 173-year history, when we officially dedicated and opened our new state-of-the art K-8 day school. We are overjoyed to tell the next generation the Good News of Jesus Christ within these new walls.

"Let the doors of this school be opened in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen."

new school building dedicated

St. Paul’s is overjoyed to celebrate the dedication of our new $10 million state-of-the-art school facility. Over the past three years, we’ve seen God at Work as we prepare to Tell the Next Generation of the glorious deeds of the Lord, and His might, and the wonders that He has done (Psalm 78:4). ⁣

On August 16, the congregation enjoyed touring the hallways and spaces of our new school. The facility features a beautiful library, new STEM lab, art room, modern light-filled classrooms, and impressive entrance with terrazzo medallion.

Rev. Dr. David Smith, former senior pastor of St. Paul's, served as guest preacher on Dedication Sunday.

"Tell the Next Generation" could easily have served as the theme of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church and School in 1849, when both were first chartered. In the 19th century, the small but growing congregation was intent on telling their children and grandchildren what God had done for them in Jesus Christ. This was their legacy to generations after them. Church and school have been united in ministry together from the time our roots began in a log cabin. 


That legacy lives on. Still today St. Paul’s Lutheran Church and School are dedicated to telling the next generation what God has done for them in Christ. God has richly blessed St. Paul’s with His Word, with people, ministry and resources. Now it is our turn. This legacy of Lutheran Christian education is who we are.


Come grow with us: In January of 2018, St. Paul’s Lutheran Church and School undertook a “Tell the Next Generation” capital campaign, phase one of which includes funding the construction of a new school building on the north campus. The name of the campaign is derived from Psalm 78:4, “We will not hide them from their children, but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the Lord, and His might, and the wonders that He has done.” 

St. Paul's congregation members pledged approximately $7.2 million toward phase one of this effort, and on September 23, 2018, we broke ground on our new school. On August 16, 2020, the new $10 million state-of-the-art school facility was unveiled and dedicated.

The new school building is designed by the Ittner Cordogan Clark Group and was built by K&S Associates, Inc., both local firms. It is three stories tall, with one floor below ground level on three sides and open to an expansive playground on the north side. The building is comprised of 32,000 square feet and is designed to serve a maximum of 225 students, which can be expanded to 275 students by finishing a room that has intentionally been left unfinished at this time.

In addition to allowing all kindergarten through eighth grade classes to be under one roof, the new school building has also made possible a 51-student increase in capacity at the Early Childhood Center. “Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to Your name give glory, for the sake of Your steadfast love and Your faithfulness!” (Psalm 115:1)
