Welcome Message

It is my pleasure to invite you to check out our church! I think you will find a dynamic congregation with great diversity among the people and the programs of ministry that we offer.

You will also experience a common sense of purpose to grow closer to our Lord Jesus and closer to each other. Our goal is to let the love of Jesus flow among us so that whether we are laughing or crying or somewhere in-between, we don't feel alone in the adventure called life. I'd like to meet you, so please call, send us an email, or stop by soon!

St. Paul's Lutheran School and Early Childhood Development Center recognized by the National Lutheran Schools Association.
St. Paul's received notification this week National Lutheran Schools Accreditation has nominated the school and the ECDC for Exemplary School Status. The schools are being recognized "for exceeding accreditation expectation." Each campus will be working to gather additional documentation including surveys, letters from stakeholders, and the identification of best practices that can be shared with other schools and that will further affirm the ministry of the respective campus. In addition, a validation team will visit each St. Paul's campus sometime before January to confirm and affirm the ministry of St. Paul's. We here at the church are so proud of our schools and staff! God has truly blessed us!

We are extremely excited about this prestigious nomination. Watch for details of how you can be involved in the process of completing the application process for Exemplary School Status.

Farmers and Merchants Bank Donation Program
As we near the end of our capital campaign to generate funds for our Event Center, St. Paul’s is pleased to announce a new partnership with Farmers & Merchants Bank. St. Paul’s Church and School have entrusted our accounts with F&M Bank, and are pleased with the high level service and security they provide.

Farmers & Merchants will donate $300 to St. Paul’s Lutheran School for each new Individual Checking Account established at their bank, and will make a $500 donation for each Joint Family or Business Account brought to the bank. Funds that are collected from this program will benefit the Event Center.
Program requirements are minimal, only a few additional services are required, and the account must be in good standing for 90 days.
Please contact the school office at 714-921-3188 if you would like more details, and to receive the code which will ensure your gift is donated to St. Paul’s.
Thank you for prayerfully considering participating in this program.
