All are fully welcome
Welcome to St. Paul, a congregation of the Florida Bahama Synod of the ELCA. We seek a deeper connection with God and with each other as we journey together.
So, whether you are here for the
first time or have been in church all your life;
whether you are liberal, conservative,
independent or progressive;
whether you are urban, suburban, rural
or nor place to lay your head;
whether you are rich, dead broke,
old, young, straight, gay, trans, non-binary,
arriving with a busload of kids, coming alone,
firm in your faith or filled with doubts,
God brought you here and we welcome you...
just as you are!
We hope you will join us on our journey with Jesus!

History of St. Paul
In 1956, the founding families of St. Paul acted in faith to establish a mission of the United Lutheran Church in America. Over the past 60+ years the congregation has built upon that faith and grown in many ways through the dedication and commitment of its members, pastors, and vicars. We have been a part of two denominational mergers that have brought us to be members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and its Florida-Bahamas Synod. Through our congregation and the ministries of the ELCA, we reach out to countless people in our local community, state, and world to share the Gospel and our faith in Jesus Christ our Lord. As we look to the future, St. Paul congregation is again moving forward in faith to build and improve our facilities so we may continue to faithfully grow ministries and provide more opportunities for sharing the faith with our community and our world.
