Project Grow

St. Paul Lutheran Church in Jefferson has been a cohesive part of the Jefferson Maryland community for over 187 years. The original building was built in 1841, the Parish house bought in 1850, main building was rebuilt after a fire in 1866, and an addition for classrooms and offices built in 1952.

St. Paul has several ministries, touching hundreds of people in the Jefferson community and worldwide.  We are the only organization open, involved and busy seven days of the week.  We want to grow in our ministries and have hundreds of people without a church right here. 

In February 2012, Proffitt and Associates Architects of Frederick MD completed an Alternative Analysis Study which incorporated needed renovations and additions to be built to grow our missions and serve the congregation and community. 

In October 2012, we committed ourselves to a major renovation and addition of classrooms, offices, and community rooms to be used by the congregation and the community. As such, we have appointed a Project Grow team of experienced program managers, financial experts, and local business owners to work with the Church Council, congregation, designers, contractors, and the county government to accomplish this plan.

March 20, 2015 Update!

God Blesses Us every day!  We have our permit and Bruchey construction will be starting late next week.  They will begin with excavation and build for the new fire safe stairwell beside the current stairwell in the back.  For now, there will be no change to parking or traffic flow on Sundays.  During the week beginning 30 March, parking next to the Parish house will be closed and the back parking lot will be accessible only through Middletown Valley Bank and cemetery roads. With the help of the congregation, the finishes for the bathrooms, the stairs, the hallways in the back, and the elevator are chosen. Individually the colors were not much to look at, but together they are beautiful!   Look in the pathway room for the finish boards. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact any of us through,  speak to us directly  Jennifer Piccerillo, Craig Birkholz, Don Tarleton or call Jennifer at 240.357.2031   THANK YOU! From the Project Grow Team!
