Mission Trip to Haiti!


  • For the 5th year in a row, St. Paul’s will be sending a Mission Team to Haiti on January 20 – 27, 2018.  In the past few years we have seen the opening of a Clinic on the Aslan property in Haiti, have dug and run a water line to the well house, which is now not only supplying running water to the Clinic but also providing fresh drinking water to over 90 families in L’Acajou, Haiti which is badly needed since the two hurricanes have contaminated the water of the shallow wells in the area.  A church foundation and pillars have also been constructed.


    This year’s work projects will include putting the roof on the church, beautifying the areas around the clinic and church, teaching English to older Aslan teenagers/young adults, and spending time with the young adults (men with men and ladies with ladies) sharing Christ and discussing other serious topics/issues. In addition, we will again host Bible Camp on four afternoons for the youth of Aslan.  If we are able to raise the funds, they would like us to feed the children a meal of rice, beans and fish at the end of Bible Camp.


    If the Lord has been speaking to you about joining our Mission Team to Haiti and you have any questions about the trip, contact Doug Buechler at 973-495-4377.

Pastor's Pen
September 2017
by Pastor Alan Darby

Dear Friends,


Though something may have small and humble beginnings, by God’s grace, it can grow to have a huge and significant impact for Christ and His Kingdom.  This is the point of Jesus’ parable about the mustard seed.  In Matthew 13:31 we hear Jesus say, “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field.  Though it is the smallest of all your seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and perch in its branches.”  This verse gives us the inspiration for the name of our newly proposed St. Paul’s United Methodist pre-school.


          Monday evening our Administrative board approved a proposal to begin to pursue starting up a new ministry to the children of our church and community.  The new name for our proposed pre-school is “The Mustard Seed Preschool: a Ministry of St. Paul’s United Methodist Church”.  We are excited about the initiative and leadership of several of our Christian school teachers launching this, particularly Donna Ferguson, our new school lead teacher and director.  This will give us an opportunity to build on the legacy of our former St. Paul’s Christian School to reach children of our community for the Lord.  Children are special and beloved by our Savior and this is a great way to share the love of Christ with them and their families.


          I am thrilled by the way people have rallied around this new endeavor and have lent their support to the launching of our pre-school.  I would encourage all of you to undergird this ministry with strong prayer power as we move forward to get it off the ground.  Please feel free to talk to me or to Donna Ferguson if you have any questions or suggestions.  Let us walk by faith in the power of His Holy Spirit to accomplish great things together for the establishment of God’s Kingdom to make an eternal difference in the lives of these little ones.  Thank you in advance for your prayers.



In His Regard,


Pastor Al
