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.

"If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you."James 1:5

What's the most useful piece He had to tell me, many times unfortunately, to think first before acting. This simple bit of wisdom has served me well throughout my life and I hope that I've been able to pass it along to others who will be well served by it. I'm sure that if you think hard enough you might be able to put your finger on a wise word you've been able to give someone as well. Wise words are like a guaranteed investment, sure to benefit the ones who take the words to heart.

Pastor's Pen
June 2016
by Pastor Alan Darby

Dear Friends,

A couple weeks ago I was watching the TV reporting of the classic, annual “Penn Relays” results. I was inspired by the story of 100 year old Ida Keeling, who set a world record for running the fastest 100 meters by a woman in her age category! Her amazing story overshadowed another part of the report which told of a 99 year old, retired United Methodist pastor from South Jersey, who also competed and finished the race. I recognized the name, Champion Goldy, who was a colleague of mine going back to when I started in ministry. Then District Superintendent, “Champ” Goldy, sat on one of the sub-committees for the Board of Ordained Ministries for one of my elders’ ordination examinations. I remember well the question he asked me in that interview. He asked what my practice was to keep myself physically fit and healthy for a lifetime in ministry! (Those where the days when I was “in shape” and constantly playing sports with my kids and friends…) Champ continues to be a challenge and inspiration to me, in faith, life, and ministry!
