Welcome to St. Paul's Lutheran Church
Where all God's people are welcome!
At St. Paul’s, we are committed to serve as faithful children of God as a part of a connected family of believers.
Over the past few years, the challenges in our state have grown. As Christians and being members of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, the desire to help address those challenges by serving our neighbor is in our blood. We have heard Christ’s promise of abundant life and we want to help, but sometimes we are not sure how. One way we can help our neighbor is through our partnership with Lutheran Services Carolinas (LSC), an institutional affiliate of the North Carolina Synod. LSC is a mission-based human services organization skilled in assisting individuals facing a variety of life challenges. In North Carolina alone, LSC provides more than $12 million in services each year to serve our neighbors. LSC has been approved by the North Carolina Synod Council to conduct a capital campaign in congregations between January 1, 2021, and December 31, 2023. This opportunity rotates among the affiliated organizations of the Synod and LSC has not had an opportunity to launch such a campaign since 1998. LSC kicked off its $4.2 million Be The Light campaign at the 2021 Synod Assembly, and efforts are well underway to share the message about LSC’s work now and into the future. Please know that all funds raised during this campaign will be used for services in our state. Be The Light is raising funds to support three primary service areas: guiding children and families; expanding opportunities for adults; and For the Children Endowment. Three areas that LSC has a history of serving and providing support for since 1976. St. Paul’s has made a 3-year commitment to LSC by pledging $12000 specifically to Be The Light. Fulfilling this pledge will depend on your generosity. Over the coming weeks, you will learn more about this campaign and will have the opportunity to discern what your commitment to the campaign will be. I urge you to listen carefully to the Holy Spirit and open your hearts to God’s call to serve. It is important that as a society, we fulfill our promise to Be The Light. Surely all of us can find something among these goals that speaks to our hearts. Our Synod has had a long partnership with Lutheran Services Carolinas. With the success of this campaign, we can be assured that LSC will remain a vibrant partner in ministry for years to come.
