A PLACE OF GRACE AND
A SOURCE OF HOPE FOR 125 YEARS
“Existing in God’s love and forgiveness,
St. Paul proclaims the gospel of Christ,
helps people grow in faith, and nurtures
lives of worship and service.”
By the Preaching of Repentance,
We Are Prepared for the
Coming of the Lord
“John the Baptist came preaching in the wilderness of Judea, ‘Repent’” (Matt. 3:1–2). His preaching of repentance for the forgiveness of sins prepared people for the coming of Christ into the world. John’s work was historically complete with the incarnate advent of Jesus, but his vital ministry continues in preaching Law and Gospel. The Son of God has come in the flesh, “a shoot from the stump of Jesse, and a branch from his roots” (Is. 11:1), and continues to bear the fruits of righteousness. His good tree of the cross is “a signal for the peoples” (Is. 11:10), by which He calls the nations to repentance. “With the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips” (Is. 11:4), He slays the wicked and brings the dead to life, making sons of Abraham out of lifeless stones. So also the “root of Jesse” comes to us, “even he who arises to rule the Gentiles” (Rom. 15:12), that “we might have hope” and be filled “with all joy and peace in believing” (Rom. 15:4, 13).
Welcome to St. Paul
Thanks for stopping by the St. Paul website. We're glad you're here.
We’re working hard to make St. Paul Lutheran
"A Place of Grace and A Source of Hope“.
(“For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men.” Titus 2:11)
St. Paul is a place where all people will know they are welcome, loved and accepted by God and by us. A place where God’s grace is evident in our lives and in our relationships with others. A place where we grow in His grace through Bible study, worship, fellowship, outreach and service. A place where we share His grace abundantly and freely. We pray that St. Paul is a place where you feel welcome and find it to be a place where you “fit.”
As you browse the site, finding out who we are, please consider stopping by the church so we can meet you and find out who you are. Join us for a worship service, Bible study or any of our other activities. Hope to see you soon!
God bless you with His grace!
Pastor Paul Tessaro
Deck The Halls, Angels We Have Heard On High, Jingle Bells, yes it’s that time of year again. The songs are on our lips and in our minds so why not share them with others. Join us as we celebrate the birth of our Savior and spread the joy of Christmas throughout Clay Center during our night of caroling. We will meet at 6:30 pm in the fellowship hall on Monday, December 16. We’ll make stops around town and then join back up for hot chocolate, cider and snacks in the fellowship hall at St. Paul. Children of all ages are welcome to attend.
