School Notes

St. Paul Lutheran Church, School, and Childcare is part of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS). The LCMS is a mission-oriented and Bible-based denomination that confesses the historic, orthodox Christian faith in the Triune God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, a faith built on "the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone" (Eph. 2:20). With the universal Christian Church, The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod teaches and responds to the love of the Triune God, who created all that exists; became man to suffer, die, and rise again for the world`s redemption; and brings people to faith and new life through His Word and Sacraments. The three persons of the Trinity Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are coequal and coeternal, one God.

VISION STATEMENT: St. Paul Lutheran Church, School, and Early Learning Center will fulfill God`s Great Commission by leading people to KNOW God, to GROW in Him, and to SHOW His love to others.
MISSION STATEMENT: The mission of St. Paul Lutheran School is to provide Christian academic excellence while equipping, educating, and encouraging one another to live with purpose through Christ.
