Mission Statement

In grateful response to God’s grace and empowered by the Holy Spirit through Word and Sacraments, the mission of St. Paul Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod is to share the love of Christ by word and deed within our church, our community, and our world.


Organized as a mission congregation of the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod in April 1955, St. Paul Lutheran Church continues to faithfully serve the Mount Vernon and Lisbon communities. In an ever-changing and often unstable world, St. Paul Lutheran Church is committed to the traditional worship, faith, and practice of the Church.

In addition to a healthy worship life and Christian education program, the congregation contributes to the community by performing an annual living nativity, offering Vacation Bible School in the summer, providing meals before worship during Advent and Lent, and much more. You are always welcome and encouraged to attend congregational activities and experience the joy of life in Christ.
