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.
