A SNAPSHOT OF WHERE WE’VE COME FROM
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 is moving again into a new reality.
Over the past 3 school years, St. Paul has been investing in our preschool ministry, expanding our offerings and utilizing every possible space in our current building. This incredible blessing from God comes with challenges, as we run out of room to grow our school to meet the need and demand in our community.
We are currently building our first dedicated worship space since our inception! We are on schedule to finish our new office space, full service cafeteria, music room and sanctuary by the end of 2019.
As we look to the future, St. Paul has a new vision; Joined with Jesus on His Mission, Reaching, Teaching, and Baptizing. We are blessed with an amazing staff and are actively seeking our new school principal. 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.
