Congregations that approach financial stewardship from a biblical perspective do not view the money Christians give merely as a way to pay bills. Rather, such congregations see financial contributions as a way to help people grow spiritually in their relationship with God by supporting their church’s mission and ministry with a percentage of their incomes. Instead of treating people like members of a social club who pay dues, we, the people of St. Paul’s, are followers of Christ who give unselfishly as an act of faithful discipleship.

Consecration Sunday is coming, November 19th!
During morning worship on Consecration Sunday, we ask that you prayerfully ask, “what proportion of my income is God calling me to give?” and then complete a commitment card. Following worship we will then enjoy a celebration brunch together in the parish hall.

Ever wonder what it takes to keep our church and our ministries up and running? Think there is something you would like to help out with but don't really know what? Come to the MINISTRY FAIR on Sunday, May 15 following the 10am service. There you will learn about all of our ministries (outreach, altar guild, buildings and grounds, memorial garden, stewardship, LEM, etc.).
