Do You have a nursery available?

What are your requirements for baptisms? For weddings?

Our pastors will perform baptisms when the parents are either members of the church or are in the process of joining the church. The parents are required to come to a baptism preparation class with the pastor who will be doing the baptism.

For weddings, either the bride or groom must be a member to have a wedding performed here. The presiding pastor will also have to approve the planned date. Pre-marriage counseling with the pastor is also required.

What should I wear in church?

Please feel free to wear whatever clothes you feel comfortable wearing when attending worship services at St. Paul.

What's involved in becoming a member?

We generally have membership classes two times per year; once in the spring and once in the fall.

Classes normally run 1 to 1-1/2 hours one time per week for 4 to six weeks. The length and duration of the classes depends upon when they are scheduled. For example, our current new member classes are being held on Wednesday evenings immediately after our Lenten worship service. We have had classes on Sundays during our education hour and during the work week.

If you are unable to attend some or all of the classes, just speak with Pastor Eastman and she will work something out with you.

For what ages is Sunday School provided?

St. Paul’s Sunday School program for children age 3 through 5th grade is called The Vineyard. Classes meet Sunday mornings from 9:45 until 10:45 from September through May. Visitors are always welcome.

The Vineyard is dedicated to help each child build, strengthen, and live his or her relationship with God. Hands-on, interactive activities are the tools we use to guide the children along their own personal faith journeys. By exploring Bible stories from both the Old and New Testaments each year, children are encouraged to discover God and God’s character, to understand the message of the gospel and God’s plan of salvation, and to internalize what it means to be a Christian and to live each day in relationship with God.

We recognize that our children need to experience God’s Word, not just hear it. Through the Workshop Rotation Model approach, we provide opportunities for our children to experience the feeling and meaning of God’s Word through active participation that is not merely “fun and games,” but rather a fully engaged learning process. School age children will explore the Bible and their faith each week in one of five different workshops which utilize hands-on active learning, such as drama, video production, puppetry, first person storytelling, computer, games, art, science, cooking, and more! Preschool children are introduced to learning about God’s love through stories, songs, activities, and crafts.

Does St. Paul have a youth confirmation ministry program?

Yes! Confirmation Ministry is a classic Lutheran educational and disciple-making ministry that helps youth identify more deeply with the Christian community and participate more fully in its mission. At St. Paul, youth confirmation ministry extends from sixth grade through the midpoint of ninth grade, and is composed of three key elements: ROOTS Sunday School for 6th-8th graders, Living Waters Confirmation Camp at Lutherdale Ministries in Elkhorn, WI (at least one summer following 6th, 7th, or 8th Grade), and a 13-week mentoring program called Making Disciples (fall of 9th grade). In addition to receiving a solid grounding in the Old and New Testaments and Martin Luther’s Small Catechism, confirmation youth develop lasting relationships with peers and Christian adults, engage in service projects for their church and community, and try their hand assisting in various roles in worship.

In partnership with parents and family, St. Paul Church is committed to helping guide, direct, teach, lead, share, and encourage young people in their faith journeys. At the conclusion of this intentional period of faith formation, youth are given the opportunity to
Affirm their Baptism on the festival day of the Baptism of Our Lord (1st Sunday after Epiphany).

Does St. Paul have a High School Youth Ministry Program?

Yes! Connections is the place for St. Paul high school youth and friends to get together and encounter God through Scripture, song, prayer, and one another. In addition to our regular Bible studies, in 2008-2009 you can anticipate:
• special "field trips"
• service opportunities
• guest speakers (“More Lives of the Saints”)
• movie nights

Check out our calendar of events to see all the good stuff happening - and remember that there's always a space for the fresh ideas in your head -so come to Connections this month, celebrate our friendship in Christ, and make your voice heard!

What programs do you have available for adults?

Keep your faith growing and your mind active. Members and friends with a diversity of backgrounds and study experience--from a little to a lot--are part of our adult classes and small groups. Instead of lectures, we learn from our readings and discussions during and between class sessions. A spirit of openness and joy in discovery are at the heart of our adult education series. Each participant's questions and thoughts are welcomed. Our goal is to build up each other in faith. Most classes are offered at least twice each week in order to accommodate people with full schedules.

Each year some of our members, offer short courses and seminars that engage life issues, the Bible and our Lutheran Christian Faith.
