Encouragers is the 55+ seniors’ ministry of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church. Our membership also includes members of other LCMS congregations and friends from the community. Our mission statement is the following:

“Encouragers will proclaim the Word through devotional times and through our intentionally friendly welcome to all who attend our activities. By action and Word, we will communicate the liberating love of Jesus to all we contact. We will uplift and encourage one another through our fellowship and activities.”

Our activities include trips to the Dinner Theatre at Clarksville, Indiana for matinee performances of popular shows; pot-luck dinners with programs of interest including community speakers, instrumental and vocal music presentations; an outing to an Otters baseball game with a catered picnic before the game; an annual Oktoberfest with a German theme, food, bingo and card games; and our annual Holiday gathering with a traditional turkey and all the trimmings followed by entertainment from the ELS choir and band.

We invite our 55+ members and friends to join us and encourage one another.
