A Message from Pastor Jon

Greetings in the name of the risen Christ!

Whether you are a lifelong resident of Rancho Palos Verdes, a newcomer to our beloved city by the sea, or a traveler passing through...  Welcome.

We invite you to take a few minutes to look through our website and find out more about the ministry of St. Paul's Lutheran Church.  From Sunday School to worship, knitting to choir rehearsals, rebuilding a VW Beetle to eating together, we hope that you would join in the praise of God with us.

Please know that whether you are a member of our congregation or a one-time visitor, we welcome you to the community, to the church, and in the name of the one God who welcomes all.  Call or visit us anytime!

May you be richly blessed, and we look forward to seeing you soon!
Pastor Jon Gathje

Our Air Force Families

St. Paul's has had the pleasure of having four Air Force families join our church family.  How did they find us?  What made them choose St. Paul's as their place of worship?  They all googled "Lutheran Churches in Palos Verdes."  What they liked: size of the congregation (small), Sunday School, a nursery, the warm welcome the children received, and general friendliness of the congregation.  While we know their time with us is temporary, we are grateful for their presence.  Win, win for all!
