Pastor Gretchen Ritola:

Having served both St. Paul's and St. Luke Lutheran churches since 2000, Pastor Gretchen and husband Nels are integral parts of the Emerson Community.  Most people in the community see Pastor Gretchen as a friend, or even family member, rather than just as a parish minister.  We are truly blessed to have her as our pastor.

St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church is a congregation centered in Jesus Christ, nourished by the Word and Sacraments, striving to be a loving community of faith, and to enthusiatically spread the Gospel by Word and example.
