My Word will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire, and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. Isaiah 55:11
We have a unique opportunity to reach and teach people of all ages and from all walks of life about Jesus Christ through our Sunday School and Bible Studies. We seek to make disciples for Jesus by:
• Setting a good Christian example
• Teaching the Bible through lessons, stories, and songs
• Emphasizing Christian values
• Helping our students accept Jesus Christ into their lives
St. Paul’s offers a variety of learning opportunities for children and adults of all ages. Come and try it—we’re sure to have something for you! Click on the tabs below to see more.
The goal of our Children’s Sunday School is to develop and encourage an attitude of excitement about Jesus Christ for children of all ages. We offer a hands-on curriculum because we believe that is the way children learn. All that we do is Christ-centered, fun and full of life. Our teachers are dedicated to help children begin and grow their faith in Jesus Christ.
Vacation Bible School
For one week every summer, we bring together not only our own kids, but many from the community, both churched and unchurched. There are five evenings of fun, including music, crafts, snacks, recreation, and — most importantly — learning the lessons of the Gospel.
We believe it is important to involve children in worship at an early age. So we have a special part of our worship service just for them. They are invited to come forward for a children’s sermon that helps them understand just how much Jesus loves them.
Our nursery is a place of warmth and joy during the worship service, available for your little ones, infants through kindergarten. Our nursery attendants and volunteers provide loving care that shares the spirit of Jesus Christ with each child we touch. To read more about our nursery attendant, click here.
God calls us to make our churches safe places, protecting children and other vulnerable persons from abuse. St. Paul’s affirms the policy that our churches should be “safe sanctuaries,” protecting children, youth and other vulnerable persons from all types of abuse. We are committed to be a community of faith where children and youth grow safe and spiritually strong.
Your children will be safe with us, safe in body and spirit, and they’ll learn about God’s love through our people. To download a pdf version of our Safe Sanctuaries policy, click on this link: StPaulsAlive Safe Sanctuaries Policy
Adult Sunday School
We offer four adult Sunday School classes. Adult classes provide the opportunity to grow and develop as followers of Christ. To that end our adult Sunday School is focused not only on learning the Bible but also practical training for ministry. Studying the Bible not only instructs us intellectually, but also guides us spiritually. We accept the Bible as God’s Word to us, alive and relevant to life today.
Weekly Bible Studies
Our pastor leads ongoing Bible Studies for adults with a variety of topics to help us connect with God and delve into the Bible in more depth.
