get involved!

Membership is discipleship at St. Paul's and we encourage everyone to get involved! Involvement is a great way to serve God and develop lifelong relationships with others in the body of Christ.


No matter what a person's age, interests, or stage of life, St. Paul's has activities, programs, and small groups where you will find fellowship, service, Scripture, prayer, and support.

men

We want to help meet men where they are with the love of Jesus.


We'd love to help you navigate the many different jobs that God calls men to.  Whether you're single, married, a dad, or a grandpa, we want to help encourage you with God's grace as you seek to live out your faith in your homes, relationships, and workplaces.


The Lutheran Men meet on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall to enjoy a dinner followed by a program.  Programs include outside speakers, Bible Studies, or any of a variety of other topics of interest to men!  

 

Our Annual Fish Fry is held in September, has proven so popular that we have opened it to all members of the church and community who enjoy not only the meal but also an outdoor related program!



women

We welcome and invite any woman, member or non-member of our congregation, to come join us for fun, fellowship, and the study of God's Word.

 

Each circle participates in various projects throughout the year to support the church as well as the community. Newsletters go out each month to keep members informed on current projects. St. Paul's Lutheran Women supports the community through participation in many local organizations including:

Trinity Health and Rehab (formerly Lutheran Home)

Trinity Living Center

Family Crisis Council (Battered Women's Shelter)

Koontz Elementary School

  

Circles of St. Paul's Women

With six small "circle" groups who faithfully meet at different times each month, we hope there is one that will work with your schedule:

Hama Lingle Circle meets 1st Monday at 7:00 PM

Grace Ridenhour Circle meets 1st Tuesday at 7:00 PM

Ellen Bumgarner Circle meets 1st Wednesday at 9:30 AM

Boozer Circle meets 1st Wednesday at 2:00 PM

Bonnie Bost Circle meets 2nd Tuesday at 7:00 PM

Kathy Ketchie Circle meets 1st Sunday at 5:00 PM

 

The women's groups are an excellent way to meet others in the church in a small group setting, learn about the programs of the church and become involved in the ministry of St. Paul's.

 

If you have questions or need assistance in choosing a group, please contact the Church Office at (704) 633-0922 or e-mail us.

 

We hope to see you next month!

hope class

Hurt + Jesus = Hope

 

You are not alone! All of us will have a time in your life where we grieve. There are many reasons for that. You may lose someone that you love, suffer a loss of a relationship, have difficulty within your families. There are many reasons for grieving. The most important thing to remember is that you are not alone.

 

Parish Nurse Ministry at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church provides a Grief Support Group the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 1:00 pm in the Counting Room. This group is open to everyone in the church and community.

 

We invite you to come and hear messages that will lift your spirit. This group is about coming into a safe place to talk, share or perhaps just soak in the experiences of others.


meals on wheels

Each month our congregation participates in Meals On Wheels of Rowan County by delivering a nutritious meal, a warm smile and a safety check to seniors living independently in their homes in our area of the county.
