Minister Jim Puhl
Welcome to our web site here at St. Paul’s E.L.C.A. in Temperance!
I am Minister James J. Puhl, the Licensed Lay Minister here. I assist the Pastor. Since a Licensed Lay Minister is not ordained (but rather licensed by the Bishop) everyone just calls me Jim. I write the services and work closely with our Pastor in all the services that we do. I do funeral services, visit shut-ins, hospitals and visit to those who are at their end of life journey. I am trained as a Chaplin and visit many long term faculties in Temperance and Monroe. I am the assistant to Chaplin John at Wellspring Lutheran Home in Monroe. As a disabled Vietnam Veteran, I understand veteran’s issues and I work to find help for all of America’s heroes.
If you are looking for a place to find peace and the love of God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit, please visit us on Sunday or call and talk to us.
