Helping the Poor

Hello – Helping the poor is a year round value at St. Paul’s. Our mission statement is “Following Jesus together in prayer, worship and service.” By service we mean serving the least among us in a spirit of friendship. In this Advent season, there are three ways we invite you to help the poor: • […]

Christmas Outreach Plus

Hello – December bears two strong and contradictory messages. The church asks us to be still and keep watch. (Jesus is coming!) Culture and family life tends to ramp up to a high pitch.

For Our Good

Rich Offerings

The smoke and the news are constant reminders that our neighbors to the north are going through an incredibly stressful and disorienting time. For some of us, the impact of the fires has been even more direct as some have volunteered […]
