Welcome to St. Paul Lutheran Church of Wallis, Texas!

General Information for St. Paul

We are currently requesting pastors from the District Pulpit supply list to fill in while we are in vacancy. We feel blessed that so many talented pastors have placed their names on this list.

The church is operating normally. Sunday Services, all programs, Sunday school, Adult Bible class and other church functions will continue as they have in the past as we start our journey to calling a new pastor for St. Paul.

The Congregational President has empaneled a call committee to start the process of selecting a course of action using the LCMS Texas District guidelines which are published on the Texas District Website for those that might want to look at what’s involved in the prescribed call process. This committee will assemble and evaluate all of the data required by the call process and present recommendations to the congregation of St. Paul for their consideration and decision on a path forward. While this may be a time of concern for our members, it should also be looked at as an opportunity to expand the congregation in new directions and move forward.

Please check back here often, and I will post updated information as it becomes available. Jan Johnson, our Adult Bible Study leader, has started a new series.

Come visit St. Paul and worship with us!

Blessings!

    Call Committee Update – February 2018

    The Call Committee has been investigating several different options in trying to find a new pastor for St. Paul.

    Progress / status to date:

    • Joint Parish with Christ Pattison and St. Paul sharing a pastor. At our last voter’s meeting, this was first path we were asked to pursue.
      • This option has now been closed by Christ Pattison. The Christ Pattison Voter’s assembly have elected to go it alone and pursue a pastor dedicated to just their church.
    • Visitation Pastor
      • This path is currently being investigated with the Texas district. So far, we have nothing to report for progress on this option.
    • Part Time Pastor
      • We have also discussed this path which still needs to be investigated further in discussion with the Texas district.

    We plan to continue on using supply pastors to provide for our services at St. Paul for the foreseeable future.

    The following pastors will be preaching at St. Paul this month:

    Feb 18th – Pastor David Cecil

    Feb 25th – Pastor Ralph Sackschewski

    God’s Blessings!
