Welcome!


I am very pleased that you have visited the Internet ministry of St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church. We are a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) located south of Findlay in the beautiful farmland of Northwest Ohio.

St. Paul is a congregation of loving and caring people. We have many opportunities to share the love of God from worship services to our youth ministry; from our women's groups, to Dart Ball to Bible studies, and more. We are constantly looking for new ways to minister to our members and to the community and world around us.

We have been in the midst of a building project here at St. Paul. On September 2012 we broke ground on a new facility that will help us, and God's ministry, for years to come. We now have a new worship space, new fellowship hall, and new education space.

You are always welcome to come and worship, study, serve, or play with us.

Pastor Steve
