Register for Church School!

Begins September 10

God created us to be creative and to create! This will be our theme as we start Church School! Each child will learn that they were created in God’s own image. They will learn to love and value all people and to love themselves. They won’t want to miss growing in their faith and making new friends this fall! Groups for infants through High School.

St. Pauls Oktoberfest

September 23, 1-8pm

It’s Munich meets Chicago as St. Pauls hosts Oktoberfest in celebration of its German heritage! What better way to tap into the excitement of this Bavarian tradition than with authentic German food, local Oktoberfest beers, live music and dancing, a jumpy-house, and games for all ages.

This year’s live entertainment will once again include the Midwest’s premier oompah band, Die Musikmeisters (3:30-7:30pm), as well as acclaimed children’s entertainer, Laura Doherty (1:30-3pm). Grab your lederhosen and join us for a festive day of Alpine merriment! Admission is free. This event is open to the public and family friendly so invite your neighbors and friends and join us at the corner of Fullerton and Orchard. In case of inclement weather, the event will be held in our gymnasium.

Support the Migrant Housing Project

We are putting the pillars of St. Pauls Strategic Plan into action. With the support of the Church Council, St. Pauls staff, and members of our congregation, St. Pauls has opened our building to house Migrant families seeking refuge in Chicago. Read more in the congregational announcement here.
