Get connected at St. Paul's


  • College COnnection

    Think back to your memories of college. Wouldn't a card or care package from your home church have brightened your day? We want our college students to feel supported and encouraged by their St. Paul’s faith family during their college years.


    Our College Connection team sends personal cards and care packages to our students several times a year, and —especially important— offers a prayer ministry to them as well. This outreach is focused on keeping our college-age students connected to their home church during these important years, as well as keeping them up-to-date on St. Paul's happenings. 


    College Parents:  

    We don't want your college student to miss out! Please help us keep our College Connection mailing lists up-to-date by passing along your student's mailing address, email address and cell number. Please call the church office or click here to provide current contact information.

  • Dinner for Eight

    Dinner groups are forming now!


    "Dinner for Eight" groups at St. Paul’s are a great way to meet new friends or stay connected with longtime friends. Our dinner groups, based on common interests or seasons of life, gather together about once a month to enjoy good food and fellowship with each other.

    Each individual or family take a turn to be the “host” home within the group selects a restaurant to meet for dinner. Dinner can be as fancy or casual as your group of eight prefers.

They may meet around a faith-based study, pursue and seek God-honoring mission in service to our congregation and/or community, or gather around a common interest/hobby.
