Our Services

What are services like?
St. Paul Lutheran, and most Lutheran churches, worship together as one large group. We follow a format (liturgy) that is shared by many ELCA churches. Whether you have it committed to heart or follow along with each step of the worship in the printed bulletin, the service provides us a way to praise God and to learn about Him through readings and teaching. Each week the service is printed up in the bulletin. This includes all of the prayers, readings/lessons, songs and easy to find references to the hymns. You are also welcome to bring along your own Bible if you desire.

What is the community like?
St. Paul Lutheran has a diverse group of believers from many walks of life, hailing from the areas surrounding Reading and the greater Cincinnati area. Everyone has a unique story of how God has touched their lives and how the community of St. Paul has contributed.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Nobody will check your papers at the door. If you visit us often, we may encourage you to be baptized, but the church is open to everyone who wishes to worship and learn more about God and Jesus.
