Congregation Council

St. Paul Lutheran Church is 700 members strong. Members of St. Paul are encouraged to get involved – to share their God-given talents in ministry as they put their faith into action.

Each area of ministry at St. Paul is coordinated by a commission made up of members and led by a chairperson, or commissioner. Commissioners also sit on the Congregation Council, the main governing body of the congregation. The Congregation Council is responsible for major decisions that affect the congregation, including staffing, expenditure of significant funds, and ministry changes. Commissioners and officers are elected to their positions.

     • President: Doreen Fritz
