All are welcome at St. Paul Lutheran Church
For generations, St. Paul Lutheran Church in Penryn has welcomed the community to church services and summer picnics.
Now, the quiet country church in the middle the village of Penryn is preparing to become a true gathering place… for everyone.
“You don’t have to be a member of the church, or even live in Penryn. Everyone is welcome,” says The Rev. Angela Hammer, Pastor of St. Paul’s Church.
Her idea, along with a committee from the church, is to create a community gathering place, where anyone can join in various outdoor activities. The gathering place is most aptly known as The Backyard at St. Paul Penryn. It is indeed in the backyard of the old Penryn Fire Hall, which was purchased by the church years ago when the new fire hall was built.
“The essence is to create a welcoming and affirming community space where community can gather, can support each other, where sharing of resources can occur.,” says Rev. Hammer. “It’s a space where people can just be, all while supporting feeding the hungry. We offer space for kids to play, for dogs to run, for people to socialize, to hear live music, enjoy lawn games, and even have a beer, Community is what we are offering.”
Rev. Hammer has envisioned such a space ever since she became the pastor in 2017. In 2019, St. Paul Lutheran Church voted to become the first Reconciling in Christ Lutheran Church in Lancaster County. Some 92% members of the tiny church had voted in favor of becoming an all-inclusive church.
The idea of The Backyard at St. Paul Penryn is to make everyone feel welcome, from young to old, of all backgrounds, all faiths, and even those who do not attend church. It’s not about religion.
It’s about community.
Rev. Hammer and her committee invited people to gather around fire pits, bring along blankets and chairs, and enjoy live music, food trucks, and local brewery beer tents.
The festivities get started on May 22. While the community gathers for fun and fellowship, it is all done to help those in need. The schedule for the summer is: May 22 — Cornhole tournament proceeds benefiting the Connor M. Holland Foundation that helps families with children facing pediatric cancer, and the Food Ministry at St. Paul Penryn to provide food to those in need. To help raise funds, there will be a beer truck, music, and food.
June 6 — Konnect with Konde. A social gathering to benefit the Lutheran Church in Tanzania. Featuring a beer truck, food, lawn games, from 5-7 p.m.
June 12 — Live music on thelawn, with a beer truck, 7 p.m.
June 25 — Fundraiser to support an all girls school in Guatemala, with live music, food truck, and beer truck.
July 30 — Fundraiser for a tiny house initiative for the homelessness, with a food truck, live music, and beer truck.
To make room for the new Backyard at St. Paul Penryn, the playground and open space behind the old Penryn Fire Hall is being updated. According to Rev. Hammer, the old playground equipment is being taken out and being replaced on the grounds. They are refurbishing the outdated playground equipment and using the natural landscape to create creative and safe play spaces. Old fencing has been removed, along with old and dying trees, to ensure safety and create an open, organic space for gathering.
The committee includes Jackie and Glenn Bartsch, RuthIosue, Dylan Ruhl, Deb Korzon, Robbie Iosue, and Rev. Hammer.
“We all bring different and varied gifts, life experiences, and professional expertise that help to round out the vision and mission of the project,” says. Rev. Hammer, emphasizing that all are welcome to join the activities at the Backyard.
And that means everyone.
As Rev. Hammer points out, “Our mission is: As a Reconciled in Christ Congregation, Saint Paul Lutheran Church, Penryn, welcomes All God’s People, embracing differences of age, race, ethnicity, physical or mental abilities, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or economic status. We recognize that we are all children of God, whose differences are Reconciled in Christ.”
When the Penryn congregation bought the old fire hall building in 2004, they used the building for funeral luncheons and other fellowship activities. Groups like Boy Scouts have also used the space, as well as other other local groups, including rentals for private functions.
As a community gathering space, The Backyard in Penryn looks to address issues such as feeding the hungry and providing an engaging place for the local community to reconnect,” says Rev. Hammer.
The goal is to create an atmosphere and culture grounded that will involve the local community, and partner with other congregations, organizations, and other ecumenical partners for resources, development, and operations. One of its main missions is to support the church’s ministry of helping to combat food insecurity and poverty.

In 1905, with her marriage dissolved and desperate to find a way to feed her children, Angela Hutchinson Hammer bought a handpress, some ink, and a few fonts of type, and began printing a little tabloid called the Wickenburg Miner. In her naïveté, Angela never dreamed this purchase would place her squarely in the forefront of power struggles during Arizona's early days of statehood.
A true daughter of the West, Angela, born in a tiny mining hamlet in Nevada, came to the Territory of Arizona at the age of twelve. Betty Hammer Joy weaves together the lively story of her grandmother's life by drawing upon Angela's own prodigious writing and correspondence, newspaper archives, and the recollections of family members. Her book recounts the stories Angela told of growing up in mining camps, teaching in territorial schools, courtship, marriage, and a twenty-eight-year career in publishing and printing. During this time, Angela managed to raise three sons, run for public office before women in the nation had the right to vote, serve as Immigration Commissioner in Pinal County, homestead, and mature into an activist for populist agendas and water conservation. As questionable deals took place both within and outside the halls of government, the crusading Angela encountered many duplicitous characters who believed that women belonged at home darning socks, not running a newspaper.
Although Angela's independent papers brought personal hardship and little if any financial reward, after her death in 1952 the newspaper industry paid tribute to this courageous woman by selecting her as the first woman to enter the Arizona Newspaper Hall of Fame. In 1983 she was honored posthumously with another award for women who contributed to Arizona's progress—induction into the Arizona Women's Hall of Fame.

Angela Hutchinson Hammer (1870-1952)
Inducted in 1983
"I liked typesetting. When I learned to set type, on the early day newspapers I had no idea that I would ever become so identified with the Fourth Estate and publish newspapers of my own, but from that one little excursion out of my chosen profession of school teaching, I got into something I have never been able to get out of." -Angela H Hammer
Angela H, Hammer has the distinction of holding membership in two Halls of Fame in Arizona. In addition to the Women's Hall of Fame, she was named to the Arizona Newspaper Hall of Fame in 1965. The members of the Arizona Newspaper
Association conferred that honor on her in recognition of her long and colorful career as publisher of weekly newspapers in a number of Arizona towns.
Angela Hutchinson was born oil November 30, 1870, in Virginia City, Nev. In 1883, at the age of 13, she and three sisters traveled by rail to Arizona. They were met by their father, who took them by covered wagon to Picket Post, where the family home was
located. Mr. Hutchinson was a mine construction engineer and the family lived in several small mining towns, including Silver King and Wickenburg.
In 1889, at the age of 19, Angela obtained her teaching certificate from the Clara A. Evans Teachers' Training College in Phoenix. During the next few years, she taught school in Wickenburg and Gila Bend. In the 1890s, while she was living with her family in Phoenix, she had her first taste of journalism, taking a job as a typesetter and
proofreader for the Phoenix Gazette and the Arizona Republican, forerunner of the Arizona Republic. Site wrote of the experience: "I liked typesetting. When I learned to set type oil the early day newspapers I had no idea that I would ever become so identified with the Fourth Estate and publish newspapers of my own, but from that one little excursion out of my chosen profession of school teaching, I got into something I have never been able to get out of."
In 1896 she married J. S. Hammer, a building contractor. The couple had three sons before they were divorced after eight years of marriage. In 1905 Angela made the first of her newspaper purchases, buying the Wickenburg Miner for $500. At first it looked like a poor investment, but after 11/2 years of hard work she had turned it into a moneymaker and was able to support her family on tile profits. From 1908 to 1910 She worked to establish a chain of newspapers at four rapidly growing mining towns. In her printing
plant at Congress Junction, she published the Wickenburg Miner, Swansea Times, Wenden News and Bouse Herald.
Then in 1912 she moved her printing plant to Casa Grande and joined Ted Healey to publish the Casa Grande Bulletin. The partnership, however, was not made in heaven. The two took opposite sides during a bitter dispute over water reclamation for the
Casa Grande valley. According to one newspaper account, during the night of Dec. 23, 1913, Mrs. Hammer had all her printing equipment moved out of the Bulletin building, and when Healey came to work the next morning all he found was his desk.
Determined to have a newspaper in which to express her opinions, Angela founded the Casa Grande Dispatch on Jan. 1, 1914. The Dispatch supported the Casa Grande Water Users Association and the Democratic party. For nearly 10 years, the Bulletin and the Dispatch tangled over political and water issues. She quickly earned a reputation for aggressive, honest reporting and her strong editorial opinions.
In 1925 Angela moved to Phoenix and the following year established the Messenger Printing Co., operated by her two sons, William and Marvin. That company merged in April 1951 with Arizona Printers Inc. and Mrs. Hammer became a board
member of the combined operation. In 1938 she was appointed by Gov. R. C. Stanford to the State Board of Social Security and Welfare, a position that she held until
1943. Having earned the respect of journalists throughout the state, site was a valued member of many professional organizations, including the Phoenix
Business and Professional Women's Club, the Phoenix branch of the National League of American Pen Women and the Phoenix Writers Club.
Mrs. Hammer died April 9, 1952, at tile age of 81.
