St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church will be 125 years old on October 31, 2012. For nearly 125 years, St. Paul’s has served the Phillips community of south Minneapolis, bringing hope and sharing the good news of God’s love in Jesus Christ.
Today, St. Paul’s serves one of the youngest, poorest and most diverse communities in Minneapolis. 7,000 youth live within one mile of our church. We are in the very heart of the Latino community, with substantial populations of Somali and Native Americans, African and European-Americans.
As we seek to be faithful to fulfilling God’s mission here, we rejoice in the promise that the seed planted by God 125 years ago will continue to bear great fruit.
St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and its Minneapolis Area Synod
