Thank you for visiting our website!

 

Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ and welcome to our website!

St. Paul’s Lutheran Church is a member of the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod and was founded in 1885. We have a very rich tradition here and a great love for our Lord Jesus Christ and our community. Each and every day we strive to “Proclaim Jesus Christ today—to all.” Our biggest mission at St. Paul’s is our school. We teach from three years old through sixth grade. Our children receive an education that is Christ centered and competes with the city system which is among the top in the state. We are excited for the bright future ahead.

Our congregation stands firm on the confession that “Jesus is Lord” and that “All Scripture is God breathed.” God’s Holy Word is our rule of faith and practice. Everything that we believe, teach, and confess has its foundation in Scripture alone. Feel free to browse our website, watch services from the past, and join us anytime! The peace of our Lord Jesus be with you!

+Pastor Bussman

  

Ephesians 2:4-10 NIV

4 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions–it is by grace you have been saved. 6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God–9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

 

Romans 5:6-11 NIV

 5 And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. 6 You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. 7 Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. 8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God's wrath through him!10 For if, when we were God's enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! 11 Not only is this so, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.

 

Ephesians 4:20-32 NIV

20 You, however, did not come to know Christ that way. 21 Surely you heard of him and were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in Jesus. 22 You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; 23 to be made new in the attitude of your minds; 24 and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. 25 Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to his neighbor, for we are all members of one body. 26 “In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, 27 and do not give the devil a foothold. 28 He who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with his own hands, that he may have something to share with those in need. 29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

On The State Mask Order

Dear Friends in Christ,

 

This has been yet another week of changes in our state due to COVID-19. I’m sure you’re all aware that masks have been mandated throughout the state by Governor Ivey. This response is in no way meant to start a “mask debate.” It’s intended to inform you of what we’re doing and why we’re doing it. We’re also in full compliance with the mandate.

 

First, our goal has been to get people back in the doors as quickly as possible. If wearing a mask expedites that goal being met, so be it; however, churches have been labeled as exempt from the mandate. I would still like to encourage their use during times of entrance and exit from the building as these are the times that we will be in closest proximity to each other. Once you’re in your seat and safely distanced, feel free to remove your mask.

 

Second, you will notice that Pastor Clark and I will not be wearing masks. It is necessary that we are able to clearly communicate during the service. This is not possible while having our face covered. We also have taken great care as to not come into contact with multitudes of people outside of Sunday. We do regular temperature checks as well. This being said, we will put on a mask during the distribution of the Sacrament of the Altar during these days of the mask mandate.

 

Third, there are those of you who have medical conditions that hinder you from wearing a mask. I’m not going to ask if you have such a condition. If you aren’t wearing a mask as you come and go, I’ll assume you fit into this category and proceed without question. I’d encourage others to do the same.

 

Finally, pray. The devil is hard at work seeking to deceive and divide. May it not be so among us! I’m sure we all have differing opinions on if a mask works or if it doesn’t and if the government has the right to do what they’ve done. None of those debates are going to strengthen us as a body. Only the Word and Sacrament can accomplish that. Let us hear that Word and join in the Feast joyfully together as our Lord guides us along the way.

 

Your Servant in Christ,


 

+Pastor Bussman

Services Resume as of May 17th

Services inside St. Paul's resumed on Sunday, May 17th and will continue with only 8 and 10:30 services being held. While we are excited to join together again, we realize the virus is still a concern. If you fall into the categories given of those who are especially compromised, we encourage you to take extra precaution if you plan to join service in person. If you are remaining in quarantine, please continue to join us online and we will see you as soon as you are ready. 

 

Precautions are in place to keep everyone as safe as possible. Everything will be printed in the bulletin, the offering plates will be stationary by the entry points, individual cups are available for communion and we ask that you observe the six feet of separation as recommenced. 

Services Update May 2020

Until further notice, worship services will be online only. Our YouTube Channel is linked here on the website.  Make sure you click the SUBSCRIBE button on St. Paul's YouTube channel so you don't miss anything. Sunday services will begin at 8 AM. Bulletins and online giving is available under the "Resources" tab. Private confession and distribution of the Sacrament take place on Tuesday and Thursday from 9 AM - 11 AM or by appointment. We continue to monitor the situation and work with state and local officials to get us all back to in person services soon. 

Trip to Israel

Pastor Bussman is planning on leading a trip to Israel from September 15th to the 28th in 2019. More details will be forthcoming. Please see Pastor if you may be interested in this trip.
