Hello and welcome to St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church, (a.k.a. St. Paul’s Lutheran), located in the beautiful southeastern part of Iowa in the city of Albia.
The community of St. Paul’s is a friendly group of down-home, no-nonsense folks. We are a group of people who strive to live the best we can, but often fall short of the mark. Thanks be to God in Christ Jesus for his love and grace! We are called together in this place to worship, pray, and fellowship so that we can grow strong in faith and share God’s love in our daily lives. During worship we confess our sins and receive forgiveness; we acknowledge God’s wondrous generosity through praise and worship. We are strengthened for God’s work through the proclamation of the Word, and receive Holy Communion weekly. And we are sent out to serve others.
We strive to welcome all people into our faith community. All are invited to come and worship with us. We continue to learn how to live out God’s hospitality in this time and place. We invite you to join us for worship and fellowship on Sunday mornings at 9:00am.
I hope that God is encouraging you to find a faith community where you can be accepted as you are, loved and encouraged by brothers and sisters in the faith, and empowered to serve God in your daily life. Come and join us for worship! Let’s engage each other in conversation.
