St. Paul's Lutheran Church supports Christian education]

Christian Education

Christ Community Lutheran School & Mayer Lutheran High School

At St. Paul’s we believe there is no better example of character, strength, and compassion than our Lord, Jesus Christ. For more than 75 years, it has been one of our core missions to help children build a Christian foundation as they grow academically. Through Christian education, we are able to help spread the Good News of Jesus and His values to the children of Watertown and the surrounding communities. 

Watertown Friends For Life Food Shelf

Monetary and food donations are accepted year-round at St. Paul’s to donate to the Watertown Friends For Life Food Shelf. We are happy to provide non-perishable groceries to members of our community that may need help getting through tough times. Donations are collected outside of the church office.

National & International Missions

Loading semi for the Orphan Grain Train

Orphan Grain Train

The Orphan Grain Train assists people in need by gathering, sorting, packing, and distributing food, clothing, medical supplies, equipment, and educational materials for those experiencing poverty in the U.S. and internationally. They work through the church so the Gospel always accompanies their service. Although this is an ongoing project, at St. Paul's, goods are gathered annually during the month of March.

LWML Mite Box for fundraising

LWML Mite Boxes

Based on the Biblical account of the widow's mite (Luke 21:1–4), the Mite Box is intended for regular contributions of "mites", or offerings above and beyond the support given to congregations and the LCMS. Mite Box contributions amount to millions of dollars that fund local and national mission grants and implement the LWML program. Mite Boxes are placed throughout St. Paul's for donations and boxes are available to the congregation in the office.

Missionary Support

Each year, we support missionaries who share the Word of God and the Gospel of Jesus of Christ with those who have not heard the Good News.
