A place for faith
Welcome to St. Paul, a congregation of the Florida-Bahamas Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. We are a growing congregation that embodies the call of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
Life comes alive when shared with a community. St. Paul is a church where the people and atmosphere is warm and welcoming to all our neighbors. We live out our call to love God and neighbor in thought, word, and deed by embracing the diversity of God's people. We recognize that when Jesus gave His life for the sake of the world, this has implications more fantastic than any of our human biases.
Need to hear the Gospel!? Join us on Sunday morning at 9:30 AM. We offer a relaxed but formal Lutheran service, weekly Communion where all are welcome, child care, and wonderful music. And please do stick around for fellowship afterward!
Interested in community events? Please see the news link above, or our social media platforms for our upcoming adult education programs and our monthly Life Together community chat time, date, and location.

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.
