One of St. Paul’s own was honored this past Memorial Day during the Memorial Day Ceremonies at the Winterset Cemetery. Dick Anderson was one of 13 local veterans who were presented with Quilts of Valor. Dick served from 1955-1976. He started in the Navy Reserves as a junior in high school and took basic training at Great Lakes Naval Station. After graduating from high school in South Dakota, he became part of the South Dakota Army National Guard. In 1962 Dick transferred into the Army Reserves and remained there until he retired in 1976 with the rank of Captain. Some of his jobs included artillery company, motor company and cook (baker). Dick’s last duty assignment was Personnel Services Officer for the 103rd Support Brigade at Fort Des Moines. Dick’s quilt was made by the Piece Works Quilt Shop QOV Group.
Welcome to St. Paul!
St. Paul Lutheran Church (est. 1941) moved to its current location at 1120 N. 8th Ave. in 2004, and is a member church of the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America).
We strive to be led by our mission in all that we do: “Responding to God’s grace in Christ, we welcome all people, prepare disciples, and live faithfully, through worship, spiritual growth, and action.” We believe that our creator God continually reaches out to all life. As we gather in worship, service, work, and play, we are bound with others in God’s grace and direction by the Holy Spirit.
Whether you are just visiting or looking for a welcoming community for your new church home, we hope you will join us at one of our two worship services, at 8:00 or 10:30. St. Paul is a vibrant congregation with many young families and members of all ages.
Our greeters will be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding the worship service. More information can also be found at the “Visitor Info” page on this site. Coffee and juice fellowship takes place between worship services, as well as Sunday school classes and adult learning opportunities.
