In June of 1995 a few people, along with Pastor Ron Janssen, began a new ministry in Peachtree City, GA, known today as St. Paul Lutheran Church and School. The original group of people who started St. Paul did not have school aged children but they recognized the benefits of a Lutheran School. Following God’s prompting, they began the ministry with an emphasis on Christian education. These early members of St. Paul built our current facilities and started our school. In the fall of 1996, St. Paul Lutheran School opened its doors for students in preschool through 8th Grade.
With a ministry priority placed on the school, facilities were built with no dedicated space for worship. Because of this, worship at St. Paul Lutheran Church has been in the both the cafeteria and gymnasium. 21 years later, the Ministry of St. Paul Lutheran Church and School has moved into a new reality.
The new dedicated sanctuary was completed in 2020 as COVID-19 hit. Worship online and now in-person in the new sanctuary is a blessing. As we look to the future, St. Paul has a new vision; Joined with Jesus on His Mission, Reaching, Teaching, and Baptizing. Our future is bright as we grow in worship attendance, outreach opportunities, school ministry, and financial stability.
The combination of an amazing group of faithful believers, an awesome staff, a new principal, financial stability, our first dedicated Sanctuary, and expanded facilities will set us up for an amazing future as we Join with Jesus on His Mission. Bringing the love of Christ to our community, sharing Jesus with children and their families, serving others in the name of Christ, and making a real difference for the Kingdom of God.
