Living Way BIble Study: weekly IN-depth study

CURRENT SEMESTER'S STUDY: Great Miracles of the Old Testament (January to April, 2019) 


  • Wednesday mornings at 9am in Sanctuary & various break-out rooms   or
  • Thursday evenings at 7pm in Fellowship Hall

The Living Way in-depth study format features a weekly lesson with assigned readings and worksheet questions to answer, break-out time in a small group to discuss the lesson in a casual setting, followed by a lecture on the lesson topic by our pastors or vicar. During the pastors' lecture time, Q&A are always welcomed. 

Join us on Wednesday mornings (beginning January 9) or Thursday evenings (beginning January 10) for this  semester's study, Great Miracles of the Old Testament. In this study, we will examine some of the tremendous moments of our Lord’s intervention in the natural course of history and human events. We will see how God’s interventions were important to His overall plan of demonstrating redemption and salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ. This study will give a greater appreciation of the Lord’s ongoing presence in our lives and communities, an appreciation for His constant providence and care in the midst of a fallen world suffering the consequences of sin and death.

“Breakthrough” Movie Day for St Paul’s: April 23

Released in Holy Week at theaters nationwide, the movie “Breakthrough” tells the extraordinary true story of a local teenager – and cousin to one of our St. Paul’s families – whose life-changing ordeal began when he and two friends fell through the ice on a St. Charles County lake. After being declared clinically-dead for an hour, he walked out of the hospital, completely healed by the Lord, sixteen days later.

Come out to the Marcus Des Peres Cinema on Tuesday, April 23 for either the 4pm or 7pm show, to watch the movie with fellow St. Paul’s family and friends. While not a private showing for St. Paul’s, the day and times have been chosen for those who would appreciate watching together in fellowship as a church family.

Tickets are only $5 on Tuesdays.

Due to the depiction of a traumatic accident, parental guidance is encouraged for those with children who may be sensitive to this topic. The movie is rated PG.

Visit with Alexey Shepelev, March Mission of the Month

Dinner sign-up here

You are invited to a dinner reception to meet Alexey an learn more about his work on Thursday, April 4 at Trattoria Toscana, 11686 Gravois Road, from 5:15-7:15pm with dinner served at 6:15pm.

Please sign up online or call the church office, 314-822-0447 by Monday, April 1. 

Alexey Shepelev has been our March Mission of the Month for the past eight years. His ministry is different than other St. Paul’s Mission of the Month recipients in that he is a Russian National ministering to people in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, and Israel rather than an American serving in these mission fields outside the U.S. He and his mission are in communion with the LCMS. His ministry includes a Russian catechism project with distribution of Luther’s Small Catechism that has been translated into the Russian language.

Alexey, born a Jew during the Communist Era, became Christian, then Lutheran, which is a Finish branch of the Lutheran Church. He attended the Lutheran seminary in St. Petersburg and was ordained a Lutheran pastor. For many years, he was pastor of a church in Moscow with a congregation consisting of converted Jews and Gentiles. Several years ago, he developed a health issue of a cerebral aneurysm that was oblated in Israel. Currently, he resides in Simferopol, Crimea, Russia. His ministry includes a Russian catechism project with distribution of Luther’s Small Catechism that has been translated into the Russian language. For the past eleven years, he has had an internet ministry with hundreds of thousands of “hits” annually taking the Word to people in extremely remote areas. Alexey also has a small congregation in the town where he lives and shares the Word to Russian Jews in Israel and travels there frequently.
