We, the members of St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran congregation are here to share the truth of God's Word.  We use the message of Christ to nurture one another that we might be equipped to spread the message of Christ to all people.   

Bring the Kids!  Our congregation enjoys the “worshipping family”.  Children who act up are not viewed as a bother to worship.  We’re glad they’re here!
However, if you feel the need, a “comfort room” for parents with small children is available complete with speakers and a window looking into the worship area.  Please find this room to your right when entering the narthex from the
sanctuary or ask an usher for assistance.  You will also find children’s church bags, a diaper changing station, a restroom, and age appropriate books there.

Mission Prayer Refuge Ev. Lutheran Church, Durham, N.C. – Jesus, our Loving Shepherd, we pray that you continue to gather your people in the Durham, N.C., area to be nurtured by your good news in Word and sacraments at the new home mission called Refuge Lutheran Church. Bless Pastor Doug Lange and the core group as they connect with the people you put in their lives. Give them hearts like yours to listen and empathize, to offer hope and to pray, as they hear about people’s struggles. We also ask, Lord, that through the synod’s “100 Missions in 10 Years” campaign many more home mission churches may be started across North America to bring more souls to heaven through your saving message. May your kingdom come, dear Savior! Amen.
