Meet St. Pauls

WE COME TO CHURCH EXACTLY AS WE ARE, AND HOPE YOU WILL, TOO

WE’RE SINGLE

Singles of all ages call St. Pauls home. Meet Dough Heyboer and hear about the “real, authentic, caring” people he found at church.

WE’RE FAMILIES

Families of every configuration abound at St. Pauls, finding food for the soul appropriate to everyone in their fold. Meet the Hartanov family, and hear what they and their lively brood have to say about their church.

 

WE’RE WELCOMING

Meet Nick and Ellen Yeh Swinehart and hear they why value a church where everyone is welcome, all are fully included, and there’s a full range  of activities and opportunities for involvement. 

WHAT WE BELIEVE

 

The Mack Family would like to share our Statement of Faith with you, as they did in one of our virtual worship services. As you’ll hear, “We believe in God, who has created and is creating; who has come to us in Jesus Christ to reconcile and make us new…”

WE’RE BELIEVERS

Some of us are new believers, while others can’t recall ever taking a breath when we didn’t believe in the grace and love of Jesus. Meet Nancy Curotto and Hugo Mario Osorio, and hear about the church they consider to be their spiritual home.

 

 WE’RE DOUBTERS

In a community of “radical acceptance,” to use the words of member Jack Knight, differences in belief are as welcome as the commonalities, and hard questions more valued than easy answers. Please take a minute to meet Jack.

WE’RE AGELESS

We are an intergenerational church, including families that stay here generation to generation. Meet just a few of the Henrys: Tom (our Pastor Emeritus), Anya Henry Kompare and Colleen Kompare.

COME HAVE A LITTLE FUN

 

At St. Pauls, loving God means learning from and living (it up) with each other. We host  regular social events for all age groups, and special events for the community, including Oktoberfest, Cookies with Santa and our annual Easter Egg Hunt. Enjoy a little of 2019’s Oktoberfest in this video.
