Welcome to St. Paul’s

St. Paul’s welcomes YOU!
St. Paul’s has been a part of the Walkersville community since 1891.  We are located in the heart of historical downtown Walkersville on the corner of Fulton and Pennsylvania Ave.
We’ve been known as the “Strawberry church” for our famous Strawberry Festival held in the spring.  We celebrate our German heritage in the fall with our German Dinner.  But that’s just a small part of who we are at St. Paul’s.  Throughout the rest of the year you will find a vibrant congregation of believers worshiping on Sunday mornings.  You will find us supporting Glade Valley Community Services (GVCS,)  as we host the GVCS Thrift Shop (Clothes Closet) or volunteer at the GVCS Food Bank.  Together we celebrate life’s victories and comfort each other through life’s challenges.  We are a community in Christ who would love to meet you.  Join us for worship Sunday mornings at 9:30 am or at any of our upcoming events, check out the “What’s Happening” tab under Ministries.

Our Leaders:

St. Paul’s is in transition!  Pastor Schlak joined St. Paul’s in January as our Interim Minister.  We are growing with his leadership and guidance.  We continue to pray for God’s guidance and presence as we go through the process of selecting a permanent Minister. Victoria Rowe is currently acting as the Office Administrator as we update our technology and database and Belinda Burriss is the Youth and Children’s Ministry Coordinator. An elected council of twelve members of the congregation help guide and direct St. Paul’s.

Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of this church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. Church members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as folding bulletins to chaperoning youth mission trips.  

Mission Outreach

The members of St. Paul’s are pleased to part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.  We are part of the Delaware-Maryland Synod.  We support the mission and vision of these parent organizations.
