St. Paul's welcomes all who seek God in community. We challenge one another to grow in spirit and compassion. We invite all into joyful worship, service and learning. Christ claims us through Water, Word, and Meal so we are gathered, forgiven, fed, and sent to be workers with God and all creation in the redemption of the world.
When you worship with us, you will encounter traditional worship for contemporary people: relevant biblical messages, beautiful music that reflects our human diversity, and a warm welcome for all people.
We have suspended streaming our worship service on Facebook Live. You are always invited to attend in person - Sundays at 10:30am. St. Paul's continues to reevaluate our practices during this new time as we navigate it together.
We are following the city of Evanston's indoor mask mandate. Everyone will wear a mask in the sanctuary for worship. You will notice that our pews are marked to encourage social distancing.
Holy Communion is celebrated every Sunday.
We look forward to seeing you!
You are also welcome to view past services posted to our Facebook page and additional devotions on our YouTube channel. They and other devotions are there so you can listen to them at any time. May you find them a comfort!
Adult Education: Sundays 9:30 am, in person in the Library. Here's what we're reading:

Pam began a call to the church specializing in children and family ministry. Feeling a call to rostered ministry, she attended the Lutheran School of Theology in Chicago and graduated in 2007 with a Master of Arts. Pam then entered ministry as a Deacon.
For many of us, the work we are called to do evolves throughout our lives. Pam discerned a new call to ministry as a pastor. As a part of the TEEM (Theological Education for Emerging Ministries) program in the ELCA, Pam completed her education to be ordained into the Ministry of Word and Sacrament in 2020. Pam began leading the congregation of St. Paul’s in October of 2019.
Two of Pam’s favorite passages of scripture are:
- Exodus 13:21-22 (God is always with us.)
- Matthew 5:1-11 (The Beatitudes: “Blessed are those…”)
