Serve the church


A caring, involved church family

“Love one another as I have loved you.” We try to put Jesus’ word into action at St. Pauls by actively loving each other through relationships of caring, kindness and service.

Stephen Ministers

Trained volunteers giving one-to-one support

You’ll find Stephen Ministers in thousands of congregations and in over 30 countries. They go through a formal training program to equip them to provide meaningful, one-to-one care to people navigating life’s tough times. The photo above shows our latest class of Stephens Ministers, and this video from Marti Pechnyo gives a first hand look at what the ministry is all about.
