St. Paul's church has brought God's presence to this community since before the time of the Civil War. Some significant dates are:

1851 St. Paul's was formed as a mission church of nearby St. John's Church.

In that same year. Mr. Joe Brown, W.m. Metzger and J.S. Gladhill pledge $1200 towards the building of this church.

1855 The conerstone was laid. The total cost was $3100.

1872 The church was destroyed by fire.

1874 St. Paul's was rebuilt and rededicated at a cost of $7000.

The years between 1912 through the early nineteen twenties was a time of great growth and ministry. The Sunday School was formed with children's, men's and women's classes. A women's missionary society, "The Mite Society" was formed.

1922 The parsonage was built adjoining the church.

1926 The chancel was renovated as part of the addition of a new Moller pipe organ.

1953 The 100th Anniversary of St. Paul's was celebrated.

1967 The new Parish Educational Building was dedicated.

1988 A renovated and enlarged Moller pipe organ was rededicated.

  Worship services are held every Sunday at 10:30 AM. Communion is celebrated regularly throughout the year. Special congregational, community and joint parish services are also celebrated. Our Sunday School meets at 9:20 AM every Sunday morning with classes for all ages, nursery, through adult.

Our worship is traditional and seeks to affirm the value of family worship. Our entire service is printed in our bulletin.
