  • Dinner for Eight

    Dinner groups are forming now!

    "Dinner for Eight" groups at St. Paul’s are a great way to meet new friends or stay connected with longtime friends. Our dinner groups, based on common interests or seasons of life, gather together about once a month to enjoy good food and fellowship with each other.

    Groups choose home or restaurant dinners. Each individual or family takes a turn to be the “host” home within the group, or some dinner groups select a restaurant to meet for gatherings. Dinner can be as fancy or casual as your group of eight prefers.

    Register online here.  Coordinator is Carrie Patterson.

  • College COnnection

    Think back to your memories of college. Wouldn't a card or care package from your home church have brightened your day? We want our college students to feel supported and encouraged by their St. Paul’s faith family during their college years.

    A key goal of our College Connection team is to encourage our college students in their Christian faith during these years of early independence, as well as to help connect them to a church near their campus. When students are home for breaks, we look forward to planning fellowship activities together to reconnect. 

    Our College Connection team sends personal cards and care packages to our students several times a year, and —especially important— offers a prayer ministry to them as well. This outreach is focused on keeping our college-age students connected to their home church during these important years, as well as keeping them up-to-date on St. Paul's happenings. 

    COLLEGE PARENTS: We don't want your college student to miss out! Please help us keep our College Connection mailing lists up-to-date by passing along your student's mailing address, email address and cell number. Please call the church office or click here to provide current contact information.

  • Joy 55+ Group

    JOY55+ is a group whose purpose is to promote positive attitudes toward aging, encourage positive aspects of moving into a new time of life, and appreciate the most of what we have if we are already older. 

    While there is no specific age criteria, the hope is to target those who may be thinking about retirement (though still possibly several years ahead of that decision) and also anyone already retired.

  • afternoon guild (Lwml)

    Meets: Second Tuesday of the month from September through May.

    St. Paul's Afternoon Guild is a group of active women of the congregation who enjoy meeting for Biblical devotions, service projects, learning opportunities and Christian fellowship together.

    The Afternoon Guild is part of the Lutheran church's nationwide Lutheran Women's Missionary League (LWML). The LWML is the leading group for Lutheran women, where each woman is welcomed and encouraged to use her unique God-given gifts as she supports global missions and serves the Lord with gladness.

  • Seniors group

    Location: Fellowship Hall

    Meets: First Wednesdays of the month at 12:00 noon (no meeting in July)

    St. Paul's has an active senior group who enjoys monthly fellowship time and activities. Gatherings begin with a carry-in lunch, followed by a program, either educational or entertaining.

  • Life advocacy group

    Meets: Periodically

    St. Paul's Life Advocacy Group (LIFE) is a ministry group that confirms the ideals and beliefs on all LIFE issues held by national Lutherans For Life. Their mission is the same, to equip Lutherans to be Gospel-motivated voices for LIFE. If interested in attending our meetings, please contact the church office.


    BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN CHRIST SHARING (BASICS) groups provide an opportunity to encourage one another in the faith. These groups help to build a sense of community, a sense of family, a sense of belonging. These groups may meet in homes, at church, in restaurants. They may meet around a faith-based study, pursue and seek God-honoring mission in service to our congregation and/or community, or gather around a common interest/hobby. Contact our family ministry team to learn more about BASICS opportunities.

We're always updating our Get Connected page with interesting opportunities to get involved in Christian fellowship and service.
