Dubs Church

Todays updated, air-conditioned sanctuary is home to a merged congregation of St. Paul’s (Dubs) United Church of Christ and St. Paul’s (Dubs) Lutheran Church.  The term “union church” means that both congregations share church facilities, a pastor and church staff. There is one Sunday worship service for both congregations.
