Life DID come with an instruction manual.
It's called the Bible!


St. Paul's United Church of Christ
is a member congregation
of the
Iowa Conference of the
United Church of Christ

In 1957 the Congregational Christian Church and the Evangelical and Reformed Church united to form a new denominatin, the United Church of Christ. This union brought together the oldest denomination entirely born in the United States, the Congregational Christian Church and a denomination that, while uniquely American in spirit, also had solid roots in old Europe. The United Church of Christ celebrated it's 50th birthday in 2007.


We are a OCWM 5 for 5 church !

St Paul's is a member church of
Madrid Home Communities

”No matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome at St. Paul’s United Church of Christ!”!

   The  Lord’s Prayer
All: Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

 *Blessing-  Numbers 6:24-26
All: The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the LORD lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.
