Mission and Vision

Mission Statement

Our mission is to go into the world, teaching, preaching, baptizing, administering communion, nurturing one another to grow in faith and serving those in need.

Vision Statement

Our vision for St. Paul's is to become a place where we love and trust God, love one another and bear witness to God's life-transforming grace. Filled with the spirit, we are excited about going into the community to share the good news of Jesus Christ with all people. We continue to strengthen our faith by serving others.


Sermons are available in CD form for delivery to your home.   Please contact the Church office to set up this service.

Reflection on Lessons

In reference to 1 John 3:16-24, Jesus' death on our behalf is the clearest demonstration of divine love. This is the very love we share with others, not just through our words, but especially through our deeds. In sharing such love we fulfill God's commandments

Mission Emphasis

Circle of Support  (COS) is a program that offers mentoring and companionship for folks who are caught in the cycle of incarceration. The COS, made up of 5 or 6 functioning members of the community, offers support that many don't get from friends or family. Circle members are not expected to provide money or housing, just good advice. COS members often know of opportunities and options available in the community that could help folks out of the cycle. Most circles meet weekly and chat like old friends. If you are interested in forming your own circle or joining an existing circle please contact any member of the Outreach Ministries committee. Monetary donations are also welcomed and encouraged.
