Service & Justice

We believe God call us to love and serve others and to seek justice in our world.

We do that for one another at St. Pauls, supporting each other through times of grief and celebrating in times of joy. And we also reach out to our community, by volunteering at a soup kitchen or a homeless shelter, sponsoring a refugee family, or by advocating for justice for the oppressed. And we believe so strongly that our care extends to all God's creatures that we added it to our statement of faith: "God calls us to care for creation."

At St. Pauls, we try to live by these words: "To believe is to care, to care is to do."
