With Pastor Andrew accepting a pastoral call to return to his home state of Michigan in May of 2021, we are relying on the experience of our ministry team to share the Word with us each week.
Roger Lampe has been a member of St. Paul’s since the summer of 1963. Roger graduated from Falls City High School in 1976. After an eventful life in Scouting, he decided to attend and graduate from Midland Lutheran College (now Midland University) in 1983. Roger finished with a major in Education and minored in Religion and Philosophy.
Roger has been teaching in the same classroom since August of 1987, mostly sixth grade science, but is also currently teaching Language Arts, as well as the 8th grade Coding class.
In the summer, he spends his time managing the Falls City Aquatic Center and everything that goes with it (swimming lessons, swim team, and programs).
When Roger gets the opportunity, he loves to travel. Otherwise, he is volunteering with several community organizations, or being welcomed home by Maggie. That would be Roger’s dog. A twelve- year old Black Lab/Border Collie mix.
