Thank you for visiting our website!


Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ and welcome to our website!

St. Paul’s Lutheran Church is a member of the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod and was founded in 1885. We have a very rich tradition here and a great love for our Lord Jesus Christ and our community. Each and every day we strive to “Proclaim Jesus Christ today—to all.” Our biggest mission at St. Paul’s is our school. We teach from three years old through sixth grade. Our children receive an education that is Christ centered and competes with the city system which is among the top in the state. We are excited for the bright future ahead.

Our congregation stands firm on the confession that “Jesus is Lord” and that “All Scripture is God breathed.” God’s Holy Word is our rule of faith and practice. Everything that we believe, teach, and confess has its foundation in Scripture alone. Feel free to browse our website, watch services from the past, and join us anytime! The peace of our Lord Jesus be with you!

+Pastor Bussman


Ephesians 2:4-10 NIV

4 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions–it is by grace you have been saved. 6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God–9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.


Romans 5:6-11 NIV

 5 And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. 6 You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. 7 Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. 8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God's wrath through him!10 For if, when we were God's enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! 11 Not only is this so, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.


Ephesians 4:20-32 NIV

20 You, however, did not come to know Christ that way. 21 Surely you heard of him and were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in Jesus. 22 You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; 23 to be made new in the attitude of your minds; 24 and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. 25 Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to his neighbor, for we are all members of one body. 26 “In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, 27 and do not give the devil a foothold. 28 He who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with his own hands, that he may have something to share with those in need. 29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

Reflections on St. Louis

Recently, our youth group traveled to St. Louis to see the sights and visit Concordia Seminary. Pastor Bussman arranged great and infromative lectures from Dr. Herrmann, Dr. Biermann, and Dr. Saleska. Our kids had a great experience and wanted to share those experiences with the congregation.We greatly appreciate Randy Frost driving us on our trip. Thank you all so much for your prayers and support.

Saturday was the ride to St. Louis. I liked getting to know more about my friends, talking to them, and calling John Mark dad. Sunday the cards game - we ate Mexican food and went to church, we took communion there. Monday we went to the zoo and got to see my favorite animal, a rhino, it was really cool. We ate at Duffys  and I got ribs. Tuesday at the seminary, we got to meet Dr. Herrmann and we went on a tour. We got the history of the seminary. Wednesday at Budweiser, I got to see the Clydesdale's. We called John Mark dad because acted like a dad and looked like a dad with his bucket hat. Dr Herman was a history professor, he took us on a tour of the history in the church. We got to see some old books and he was really nice. Dr. Biermann teaches systematic theology, he told us what Rajiv detre it means reason for being. Dr Saleska was a pastor for 15 years in Cincinnati and works at the seminary now. I would like to thank the congregation for allowing us to go on this trip with no out of pocket money. And for generously donating money so that this was even possible. - Evan Hogeland

My overall experience in Saint Louis was really good. Saturday, we drove up to Saint Louis and we stopped at Freddy's steak burgers and ate there. Then we were back on the bus and bound for Saint Louis. Sunday we went to church in Hamel and we were able to attend Pastor Whedon's bible class and the service was just like ours at Saint Paul's. After the service, I was able to see my grandmother that I haven't seen in a long while so that was very nice and I was also able to see my aunt. After being able to see my grandma, we went to get ready to see the cardinal game at Busch stadium. The best part of the baseball game was the food and drinks in the party box. The best part of the game was the seventh inning because the Cardinals caught up with the Reds, but unfortunately the Cardinals didn't win the game. Monday, we went to the zoo and we were able to see the penguins first and then the polar bear. At 10 o'clock we were able to see the sea lion show with Robbie the sea lion. My favorite animal at the zoo was Robbie. After the zoo, we went to the seminary and Pastor Bussman gave us a tour of the seminary with Mr. Lackey. Tuesday, we went to the seminary and had another tour but with Dr. Herrmann. He showed us all the history in the seminary and then went to eat at Carl's sandwich shop. Wednesday, we went back to the seminary and had a lecture with Dr. Biermann about our raison D'e^ tre which means reason for being. After that we went to the Budweiser brewery and were able to see the Clydesdales and took a picture with Lloyd the Clydesdale and we learned how the beer was made. After that we went to the Arch and we went on a river boat ride at six o'clock. Thursday, we went to the seminary and had a lecture with Dr. Saleska about the Psalms and the Old Testament. After that we were on the road heading home and we stopped for lunch at Lambert's cafe where they throw the rolls to you. But overall this trip was great and I learned more about the Lutheran faith. So thank you all for the people that donated. - Jeremiah Dake 

I really liked the church we went to at St. Paul's in Hamel and I really liked Pastor Whedon. I enjoyed the Cards game especially the food we had and I had 6 Shirley temples and they were delicious. Also, we got to sit in the box right behind the plate. My second favorite thing was the zoo because I got to see animals I don't see a lot and it really helped me get to learn about all the different animals and Robbie the sea lion. We went to the seminary and took a tour with Jonathon Lackey and Pastor Bussman. He showed us where he stayed and all the stuff that he did for fun. Then my other second favorite part was when we went to the seminary and learned a little bit about Martin Luther with Dr. Herrmann. He also he took us on a tour and we got to see books from the ancient times I also got to read a little bit of Latin with him. Then Dr. Biermann gave us a lecture on the different types of theology primarily systematic. Then he told us what raison D 'e^ tre means. It means reason for being and taught us what our reason for being on this earth is for, to protect and serve God's creation. Also, we went to the Budweiser museum and got some cool souvenirs then we went to the Arch and took a river boat cruise and learned a lot of stuff about the Mississippi River. Then we went to the seminary and Dr. Saleska gave us a lecture on exegetical theology and we learned how to read and connect with the psalms and understand them. We went across new Madrid fault on the way home. Thank you guys so much for the donations and all your support of our fundraisers. We had a lot of fun. We love you all and greatly appreciate it thanks for helping. - Minor Lamar 

The trip was very fun, even though there were a few bumps along the way, I enjoyed being able to spend time with everyone for much longer than I would usually get to. Dr. Biermann's lecture was very informative and the tour of the seminary was great. That was my first time going into a bell tower, let alone one at Concordia. The chapel service was very beautiful. Outside of the seminary, I enjoyed going to the zoo. On the second day we went, the worker at the penguins got the one I was watching to come closer to me which was super cool. I also bought the best opossum ever and had the most delicious cheese enchiladas. I'd like to thank all of those who supported and donated to our youth group, if it weren't for everyone we would not have been able to take this amazing trip. - Alyx Osmer Bibb 

On my trip to St.Louis , I learned from Pastor Bussman about seminary life and what it was like to live on campus. I also learned about the seminary's collection of rare books from Dr. Herrmann. I also enjoyed learning about the brewing process from the Budweiser tour we took. I also enjoyed seeing the Arch and going on a riverboat cruise around it. From Dr.Biermann, I learned about my vocation and reason for being. I also enjoyed seeing the zoo and the animals it had to offer. I am greatly thankful for the congregation and their support of our youth program. Without it we wouldn't be able to rent our own box for the Cardinals' game. I greatly cherish and am thankful for their generosity. - John Mark Johnson 

I had a great time in St. Louis. Sunday we met Pastor Wheedon and went to his awesome church. After that, we went to the Cardinals game and had a private box which was amazing. Monday, we went to the zoo in the morning and saw a bunch of animals and in the evening we went to the seminary and had a tour with Jonathan Lackey and Pastor  Bussman. Tuesday, we went to the seminary and had a lecture with Dr. Herman and I enjoyed hearing about when he went to Poland to work on the Luther movie and then we went to the zoo again to finish seeing the rest of the animals. Wednesday, we went to the seminary and had a lecture with Dr. Biermann, after that we went to the brewery and saw the Clydesdales. Thursday, we had a lecture with Dr. Saleska and we ate lunch at Lamberts in Missouri. I had an awesome time on our trip and thank you for supporting us throughout our fundraisers. - Joseph Conn
