Our Purpose is to:
Praise God through worship,
Grow as disciples through study,
Share our faith through testimony, and
Serve others through ministry.

Welcome to St. Paul's. We are a family of Christian believers excited about being a part of what God is doing in the world and in our community. We invite you to visit us to see if the rich Spirit of Christ we are experiencing, meets your needs as well. The pastor, staff and church leaders at St. Paul's are committed to excellence in ministry. We are servants and imitators of Christ, eager to share from the rich abundance of His blessings.

Pastor's Pen
April 2014

by Pastor Alan Darby

Dear Friends,

Helen Keller was known to have said, “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” I hope you have joined me in our Lenten 50 Day Spiritual Adventure, “Daring to Dream Again, Overcoming Barriers that hold You Back.” It may be a new style adventure for many of us. For most of us, it usually takes something like “an adventure” to push us and motivate us to go beyond our spiritual status quo, to grow the next step in faith. Therefore I believe our Adventure memory passage is most fitting:

12 Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. 13Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:12-14

How are you doing in committing this to memory?

Verse of the Day

  • 1 Corinthians 15:20-22
    “But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.”
