In response to recent developments concerning the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and out of care and concern for our worshipers, St. Paul will suspend the weekend services for the weekends of March 21-22 and March 28-29 and the next two midweek worship services on March 18 and 25 in adherence to the ban on gatherings over ten people. We will continue to monitor the situation.

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

     

    General Information about St. Paul

    For those that are looking to find an LCMS church that primarily offers Traditional Lutheran Services you have found a home! We have recently moved to the Lutheran Service Book for our liturgy and hymns. St. Paul was founded in 1900 and primarily serves the Wallis, East Bernard, Simonton, Weston Lakes, 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.

    Introducing our new Pastor, The Rev. Rod Houppert
