St. Paul Lutheran Church
General Information for St. Paul
For those that are looking to find an LCMS church that primarily offers Traditional Lutheran Services you have found a home! We use the liturgy of The Lutheran Hymnal(Red Hymnal) and alternately sing hymns from both the TLH and Lutheran Worship (Blue Hymnal). St. Paul was founded in 1900 and primarily serves the Wallis, East Bernard, Simonton, and Fulshear Texas area. Several families travel from distant parts of the Houston area as well. We have a fellowship time after each service were the congregation and visitors can meet over a cup of coffee and a treat to talk. We are a small congregation but behave like a welcoming family. We hope this sounds like a place where you would like to come worship Christ and get to know us.
We are currently in Vacancy at St. Paul. Our Pastor of nearly 28 years retired for health reasons, but we have been blessed to have a variety of great pastors providing for our needs each Sunday. These pastors are requested through the district pulpit supply list to fill in while we are in vacancy. We are thankful that so many experienced and gifted 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 continue as they have in the past while we continue our journey to calling a new pastor for St. Paul.
The call committee’s work will continue as we move through the prescribed call process. 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. We have requested a fresh list of Pastoral candidates and will continue our search.
Please check back – I will post updated information as it becomes available.
Come visit St. Paul and worship with us!

The call committee will request a Special Voter’s Meeting on Jun 2nd to present a proposed Pastoral Candidate. We will provide the candidate’s information pack and ask for a vote on whether to extend a call to the candidate as a part time pastor. We pray for God’s guidance in our search so we can move forward in finding the shepherd he wants to lead St. Paul Lutheran Church.
Please plan to attend this Special Voter’s meeting to let your voice be heard in arriving at a God pleasing decision on this matter.
The Call Committee will continue to request supply pastors to provide for our services at St. Paul while we continue our search for a Pastor.
The following pastors will be preaching at St. Paul:
May 26th – Pastor Jeffrey Hemingway
June 2nd – Pastor Scott Stewart (Communion)
On Sunday morning, May 19, St. Paul Lutheran Church in Wallis, held their Graduate Recognition Sunday. During this service, Veronica Cassidy Brzozowski was recognized as a graduating senior at Brazos High School. After the church service, all celebrated her upcoming graduation with a special cake provided by her parents.
Cassidy will graduate on Friday, May 24, 2019. Her accomplishments include making the A/B Honor Roll and playing in the high school band for three and a half years. During her senior year, she was Section Leader of the Drum Line.
Cassidy has been active in St. Paul Lutheran Church in Wallis since April 2005. She was baptized in 2007 and confirmed in 2013. During her confirmation years and many years following, Cassidy served as an acolyte. She has also served as a helper and teacher in St. Paul’s Vacation Bible School, and an active member of Teen LWML.
Cassidy plans to attend WCJC in Wharton for three years and transfer to the University of Houston where she plans to become a NICU nurse and a travel nurse. The congregation was happy to recognize Cassie as she starts this new adventure in her life.
