Welcome to St. Pauls Lutheran Church in Grand Island, Nebraska. We invite you to look around and get a feel for things. If you are not currently a member of our church, we would like to take this opportunity to invite you to one of our weekly services. And of course, feel free to reach out and contact one of our pastors. We are home to an award winning Childcare and Preschool Center.
