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

Sunday School Classes for ALL Ages!!

10:15 am on Sundays


CHILDREN

  • Toddlers and preschoolers enjoy Bible stories, songs and crafts. The toddler class is taught by Amanda Leu & Kelly Settlage on a rotational basis. Jean Ludwig, Lindsay Follas, Whitney Hirschy & Lisa McDowell lead the preschoolers.
  • Kindergarten through 5th grade children learn under the direction of Jane Follas and Emily Loy. Large and small group lessons include Bible stories, crafts, movies, cooking and games. They will be studying the Easter Story for several weeks. Next month a special Earth Day lesson is planned for April 22nd based on Dr. Seuss’, “The Lorax”. During the month of May the group will hold Bible cooking classes.

YOUTH

  • Chris Sheets leads students in grades 6–8 as they enjoy a fun structure of reviewing Bible stories and applying them through various video clips and games. This class is currently reviewing stories in the New Testament. New students are always welcome to join in the discussion and share their input.
  • Under the direction of Phil Riegle, students in grades 9–12 meet in the youth room and strive to tie their faith lives to the Bible. In this Jesus–centered class, they spend time reading and discussing a book of the Bible as well as multimedia–led lessons. This group also provides service by helping lead worship once a month.

ADULTS

  • A new class for college age young adults will begin mid to late April in the Sunday School classroom with the piano. Led by Kris Russell, this group will begin with a Bible study using Daniel as a centerpiece to discussions on how to love but stand firm in a culture of compromise. Please come and join us! 
  • Conference Room – This class led by Tom Boehm is open to all ages, from college to senior citizens. Currently they are using Serendipity Interactive Bible Studies. Serendipity happens when a few people get together in a small group. They get to know one another and the Holy Spirit gets involved in the process. The studies enable sharing in scriptures that applies in our own lives right now. Whether you have a little or a lot of Bible knowledge, everyone has something to share
  • Library – Using a study guide with scripture references and questions to discuss, this class is led by Natalie McClelland and Nadine Boehm. The current study is focused on the Bible including its purpose, interpretation, guidance, promise and fulfillment. The aim of this particular study is to explore how God’s word can make a difference in our lives and in our faith.
  • Classroom next to library – Led by Gary Wilson, this class is designed for all ages. At times, ages have ranged from 18–85! Topics are based on current events and/or other major issues affecting our present Christian beliefs, and how we can best incorporate these into our church and family relationships
