Welcome to St. Paul Lutheran Church in Winterset

St. Paul Lutheran Church is a member church of the ELCA. 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 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.
