Climbing your way to the top is exhausting.
It’s time to stop. It's time to rest.

At St. Paul Lutheran we believe there’s no way to know or enjoy God by climbing the stairs of your own morals, obedience, or efforts. Instead, we teach that the good news of Jesus Christ restores our hearts to both know and enjoy God in every area of life. From him come true peace, faithful obedience, and spiritual rest.

We’d love to tell you more. Please visit us — and start resting.
