A church is people who need and care
for one another. It's a place where we can come to grips with the meaning of God in
our lives and explore new dimensions of
what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ in today's world.
It's a place to celebrate God's love, forgiveness, direction and peace in an atmosphere of acceptance and support.
It's an exciting place of learning, understanding and growth for people
of all ages and stages in life.
St. Paul's offers a host of opportunities for worship, learning, making music, and building relationships with God and each other.
"God's Work, Our Hands"
Holy Communion is celebrated weekly in which God's love for us, our being forgiven in Jesus' sacrifice, the new life we have each day to help others, and our new life beyond this one, in remembrance.
We offer Sunday School for children, and are growing our youth program and High School Youth Group.
Confirmation instruction is available to both youth and adults that teach and inform how in the church we receive and share God's will for our lives. Please speak to Pastor Callister if you are interested in knowing more.
Both "seasoned" & "young" women in the Lord are welcome to gather together to activate their faith through service to others, their community and share their life events in fellowship with one another.
This group is open to all women seeking a deeper insight of God's plans for their lives, and the Body of Christ through Bible Study.
Men In Mission
This fellowship of men work to help others, take time to share breakfast once a month, and take time to remember how God is working in their lives. We welcome all men to share their skills and talents, and share Jesus' Spirit who lives in our hearts.
