Welcome to St. Paul Lutheran Church!
If you’ve already visited us for worship, or attended another event at our church or school, then you’ve already got a general idea of who we are. But if you’re just checking us out online, let us sketch out a few of the main things about our congregation that you’ll want to know.
St. Paul congregation actually has TWO worship sites. We have a church and preschool just west of downtown Ann Arbor, and we have an elementary school and a second preschool on the east side of Ann Arbor, near Hwy. 23. Our three downtown services take place in our sanctuary, which has a traditional “churchy” architecture and an excellent pipe organ. But many of our members worship at the school site, where we set up our sanctuary every week in the gymnasium. Although it’s not a traditional church building, the gymnasium is actually a comfortable place, and our worship atmosphere is much enhanced by the large mural that expresses the mission of our congregation.
Besides our 4 worship services, our elementary school and our preschool, the members of St. Paul are enthusiastic about studying God’s word together. That usually doesn’t take place in large groups, although there is a Bible study group that meets between the services downtown and after the service at the school. But our members like to meet in many small groups, in their homes, to learn together, to encourage one another, and to find ways to serve in the community together also.
