Ministries and Missions

And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you? And the King will answer them, “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.”

                        -Matthew 25:38-40


For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor power, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

                        -Romans 8:38-39


St. Paul United Church of Christ is a vibrant worshiping and serving community of faith. Each week we worship God through the Risen Christ and then we are sent out to serve Him in the community.
