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 – September 2018

    Call Extended!


    The Call Committee has completed its initial work and provided a recommendation to congregation at a special voter’s meeting that was held on September 23 in the St. Paul fellowship hall. The Church President presented the call committee findings and the  voter’s discussed the recommendation. In addition to the Congregational voters, Pastor Wayne Schueler, our Circuit Visitor from the Texas District was also present at the Voter’s meeting.

    After discussion, there was a unanimous vote to extend a call to the Pastor John Moore. If he accepts the call, He will provide 20 hours of service per week to St. Paul as our Pastor.

    The call documents have been forwarded to him for his prayerful consideration.

    We are fortunate to have selected a pastor that has already preached in from of the St. Paul congregation on several occasions as a supply pastor.

    We are now waiting to receive a response from Pastor John to our call.

    More details will be provided as soon as an answer is received.

    Blessings,

    Elder Steve
