The St. Paul’s Communications Team coordinates all communications for St. Paul’s, including the website and The Epistle, our bi-monthly print newsletter. If you’re a social media guru, have writing or photography skills, or have experience (or an interest) in learning WordPress (for website management), share your talents with St. Paul’s and join our communication team!
Garden Team members work around the grounds of the church, pulling weeds, dead heading flowers, fertilizing plants, planting flower beds, occasionally trimming trees, picking up trash, and more. Team members are asked to meet with the Property Committee for specific activities and to work with team members for direction.
The Newcomers Team explores the most effective ways to greet, welcome, and engage visitors and new members at St. Paul’s. The team meets around once a month and uses the model of Greet—Transform—Send. This serves to orient our work toward the primary task of a Christian congregation: to gather those called by God into a community of transformation of mind, heart, and action, and to send people into the world to be and act as God’s loving and transforming presence.
St. Paul’s Church is fortunate to maintain a cadre of dedicated volunteers who work in our church office. Volunteers serve in the morning from 9:30 am – 12:30 pm or the afternoon from 12:30 – 3:30 pm, answering phones, welcoming visitors, and performing general office duties. Throughout the month, these volunteers give selflessly of their time and talents. Would you like to join our team? Learn how you can contribute!
Parish Life supports Fellowship Dinner Groups, Family Camp, and the Men’s Breakfast Group, and volunteers staff Sunday morning coffee hours. Additionally, this ministry manages and provides backup for seasonal celebrations, special receptions, clergy and diocesan meetings, and marriage preparation seminars. Parish Life members share their time and talents (and often their delicious edibles!).
The Property Ministry maintains and improves our campus structures and gardens. Whether trimming a bush, raking leaves, painting a room, or solving a plumbing problem, our Property Committee members are quick to roll up their sleeves and give generously of their time to help keep St. Paul’s running smoothly and looking beautiful.
One definition of stewardship is What I do, with all that I have, after I say, ‘I believe.’ The purpose of the Stewardship Team is to educate the congregation in the Biblical principles of whole life stewardship that reflects time, treasure, and talent. Programs are designed to promote a culture of abundance and gracious giving. It acknowledges the generosity of St. Paul’s members and of those outside the St. Paul’s community. Our team works with the Rector and is responsible for creating and conducting the annual pledge drive occurring in the fall.
Gifts and Memorials
We are fortunate to have generous parishioners, families, and friends who make gifts to St. Paul’s. Sometimes these gifts are made in memory of a loved one, to support a particular need, or to honor an individual or special occasion. The Gifts and Memorials Committee meets throughout the year to account for these gifts and memorials, send acknowledgments to donors, and make disbursements when requested.
