Worship is the center of Christian life because we are designed for communion with God and with one another. In worship we receive Christ’s forgiveness in Word and Sacrament, and we respond with thanks and praise and lives of love. St. Paul’s worship space is not an auditorium designed for entertainment, it is a sanctuary designed to facilitate communion with God. There are multiple weekly opportunities to receive God’s gifts in the company of others, as God designed it, for you and for all.
At our traditional services, the organ, which has been used in worship for centuries, is the primary instrument used to lead the congregational singing. Depending on the day and season, the organ may be supplemented with brass, percussion, vocal solos, choirs, handbells, woodwinds, and other instruments. The liturgies and hymns are from Lutheran Service Book.
At our contemporary service, one of our praise team bands accompanies the congregational singing. The primary instruments are guitar, keyboards, and drums, though many other instruments are used. The order of service maintains key elements of the historic service, and the atmosphere is slightly less formal than the traditional service.
Our Sunday 8:00 am service is broadcast live on 1540 AM and 104.9 FM. The mission of St. Paul’s Radio Broadcast Ministry is to provide church services for shut-ins, disabled, sick, or for those who cannot attend regular church services but want to be a part of the congregation. Specials broadcasts are done on events such as Good Friday, Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.
