Welcome to St. Paul's Lutheran!

All our worship at St. Paul’s is focused on the worship and praise of God. We believe as a Christian congregation and as individual Christians, that who we are and what we have are all gifts from God. Worship at St. Paul’s means stepping into the presence of God. In worship, God speaks to us, we receive the love God has for us and we respond with prayer, praise and thanksgiving. Our goal in all our worship services is to provide relevant, Bible-based messages and invite you to engage in Christ-centered worship. All our worship services are a safe place to come seek the Lord and His salvation and blessing in Christ Jesus.

To encourage this, we offer:

  • Multiple worship opportunities each weekend
  • Special festival services throughout the church year
  • Special music from our adult and children musicians
  • A friendly and welcoming environment to worship
  • Great fellowship through which to grow and serve each other

We encourage all of our members to worship Him regularly as an expression of our gratitude to Him. We offer the following regular opportunities for worship:

  • Saturday Evening 5:00 p.m. - Traditional Worship (Downtown Church, Kankakee)
  • Sunday Morning 8:30 a.m. - Traditional Worship (School Location, Bourbonnais)
  • 11:05 a.m. - Contemporary Worship (School Location, Bourbonnais)

Worship Services - What are the Differences?

Traditional

Our traditional worship services incorporate basics of traditional liturgy as well as traditional hymns. We follow the worship services from the “Lutheran Service Book” hymnal using the organ as the main instrument to lead worship. You will hear Scripture readings and inspirational sermons. Occasionally, our worship is enriched by one of our adult or children’s choirs, a vocal ensemble, or soloist, or handbell choir. A printed bulletin will comfortably guide you through the service along with projection screens at our school location. Traditional altar and pastors’ robes remind us of ancient, meaningful traditions.

Contemporary

Our contemporary worship services offer a more informal experience than our traditional services. In this worship service, we blend new and traditional worship resources, with contemporary music, songs and litanies. We are led in worship by our contemporary band and song leaders. This service also brings you Scripture readings and inspirational sermons. Occasionally, our worship is enriched by one of our adult or children’s choirs, a vocal ensemble, or soloist, or handbell choir. A printed bulletin will comfortably guide you through the service along with projection screens at the school location. While there is a traditional altar and pastors dress in robes, it ties the ancient worship of the church with the words and music of today. Childcare is provided for those with younger children.
