Mission and Values

St. Paul’s Lutheran Church is one of nearly 10,000 congregations across the United States, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands who share an identity as being a part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA).

Our congregation is a part of the Central States Synod, one of 65 synods in the ELCA. The word ‘synod’ literally means making a way together. The Central States Synod connects the congregations located in Missouri and Kansas.

St. Paul's Mission Statement – Being transformed by God's grace to love and serve.

We are proud to be an important part of the community here in Cole Camp, loving God, serving our neighbor, and working to make this world a better place.
