Jesus said, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
At St. Paul’s, you’ll find a warm, accepting atmosphere, challenging worship, and a commitment to practical faith. Each event and ministry is designed to help you become a fully devoted follower of Jesus Christ, while forming meaningful relationships with others in an environment of joy and peace.

Commitment, Not Commentary
The world is awash with chattering commentators, on radio, TV and social media 24 hours a day. They comment on politics, sports, books, entertainment, restaurants, the economy, and on and on. It’s not only by experts on TV or radio. It happens also at the ordinary level of life, especially on Facebook and other social media. We find “home-grown” commentators all over the place—sitting in their homes posting on Facebook, standing on the street, calling in to the many “talk” radio shows that have burgeoned.
We also encounter them in churches. These may comment after a service if the organist touched a wrong note, if the preacher split an infinitive, and even if one candle burnt down more quickly than the other one!
Some of these church commentators are erudite. They know their stuff. But when it comes to commitment, they shy away. They are more than happy to be commentators but not active practitioners in the life of Christ’s church. They have plenty of opinions, a minimum of action.
BUT Church activity is not about Church programs. It’s about how we live out the faith in our lives.
If you see yourself in the above descriptions, don’t lose hope. Just come on out to church and get involved. Volunteer to make a difference— in the church, in the community, in the world. The biggest difference it will make is in your own life.
