About St. Paul's
Our parish story is as beautiful and engaging as an artfully and lovingly stitched quilt. This quilt becomes a treasured heirloom that honors our past, strengthens our present, and inspires our future. These bits and pieces, the diverse beliefs of God’s calling for us as a congregation, combine to form a fabric that tells the story of a congregation that is strongly held together with threads of love, devotion, and compassion. The needle that draws these threads through our congregational fabric is our core belief in Jesus and our collective desire to follow his teachings and to serve God.
The batting, or middle layer, of our quilt is made up of a diverse group of people drawn together as a parish family with dreams of growing our family with new members from all walks of life. We welcome all by creating a nurturing an inviting Christian community. We have an environment full of worship music of all sorts, ranging from the traditional to the contemporary. We seek to create an atmosphere offering engaging and thought provoking services that are meaningful to our daily lives. We have strong programs for children and young people that are fun, inviting, and anchored in Christian values.
The backing of our quilt is comprised of the many ministries that draw upon the talents and leadership of the members of the congregation to serve God, nurture spiritual growth, and provide for the needs of our community. St. Paul’s is graced with people who are inspired to share their love of Jesus by serving others and who feel enriched by the blessing of service and giving. Our love of Christian fellowship draws us together for an hour of catching up following each service and at the many traditional events that are held on our church campus throughout the year.
The ﬁnished quilt border is stitched with these words: “We follow Jesus, welcome all, and nurture ministries.” Our church is full of parishioners who wrap themselves in St. Paul’s quilt and feel enveloped by God’s love and peace; we hope that the warmth and textures of this spiritual quilt will attract new members and families to join our congregation as together we grow in faith, number, and in Christian love.
