Growing Together Through God's Grace

Our Pastors


Paul H. Neff


I am Reverend Paul H. Neff, pastor of Grace Lutheran Church in Royersford, a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.

I have been ordained in the Lutheran Church since 1981 and I have been serving Grace Lutheran as Pastor since 1995. My wife Janet and I were married in 1977 and we have two children.

Grace is a church that proclaims the good news of Jesus Christ through our worship, witness, teaching, fellowship, and service. We are a church where you can come to know about the love of God and where you can have your faith strengthened. We are a Christian Lutheran community that welcomes you and all ages of people of any denomination. All who want to know Christ and believe him to be present, receive his sacraments, have forgiveness of sins, are blessed by his grace and have hope for each Grace Lutheran is a good church to grow in faith, know God's love and be part of God's family.

We invite, and we welcome you in the life of Grace Lutheran Church where you will know God and make new friends in Christ.

Peace to you,
Pastor Paul Neff

Welcome and thank you for visiting our website to learn more about Grace Lutheran Church and our ministries here!

I was called to the staff of Grace in September 2004 as the fulltime associate pastor because of the wonderful growth and work that God was doing here.Over these last few years, Grace's ministries have continued
to grow both inside these walls and beyond. I love the warmth and genuine care that characterizes this community and I am particularly excited by the ways that Grace is going into the world around us - locally and far beyond to touch others with the good news of Jesus Christ.

Prior to my ordination in the Lutheran Church in 2004, I worked as a speech and language pathologist, and enjoyed life as a wife and mom. My husband, John, is an engineering manager who has been the love of my life and spouse for over 25 years now. My, how time flies! We have 3 children, JJ, Ryann, and Julie who are all young adults and make us extremely proud. Ghillie, our Irish Setter, and Taz, our SPCA refugee round out the family.

Please come worship with us and experience God's Word and Sacraments for your life. We invite you to hear how God is calling you to give thanks and praise... to better understand your calling in life...to have your
faith nourished and fed...to become part of a growing community of faith that is richly and firmly grounded in the love and grace that is given us through Jesus Christ. We would love for you to become part of our church family!

In Christ's peace,
Pastor Janelle Krais
