"Connecting the Community to Christ."
In this statement, "community" is defined two ways. In the narrow sense, "community" consists of our own church membership. Therefore, everything we do in our ministry (worship, fellowship, discipleship, ministry, evangelism) is so that the body of Christ here (this church community) will be more fully connected to the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
However, in the broader sense the word "community" refers to all those outside of our church (both locally and globally) who do not yet know Christ so that they too would be connected to the saving gift of Jesus Christ for their life. Therefore, the mission of St. Paul Lutheran Church and School is "Connecting the Community to Christ."
