St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran has a diverse group of believers from many walks of life, hailing from the areas surrounding Reading and the greater Cincinnati area. Everyone has a unique story of how God has touched their lives and how the community of St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran has contributed. Below are just a few of their stories.

Diana and Leandra

I joined St. Paul’s eleven years ago after a period of my life during which I felt that organized religion was not meeting my spiritual needs. All that changed once I came to St. Paul’s. The members of the church quickly became my second family. My daughter has grown up with the love and acceptance that our congregation envelopes our members in. With God’s guidance my daughter will continue to grow in her love of God’s word and hopefully will consider a life of service.


I became a member of St. Paul over 25 years ago and consider this congregation my second home. The members are like a large family of caring people. We rejoice together and share each other’s sorrows. The support that is shared comes from love for God and one another. But the love of St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran extends beyond the walls of the church as its outreach programs reach into our community and the world. It is a joy to be involved with St. Paul in worship, witness and work.
