Wednesdays in Lent … 11:00 a.m. (Luncheon following) and 6:00 p.m.
When the days drew near for him to leave this earth, Jesus “set his face” to Jerusalem to encounter the pain of the cross on our behalf (Luke 9:51). In the same way in this Lenten series, we set our faces on the cross of Christ. As we face the cross we also face certain aspects in our lives which are not always in line with the cross. We come to terms with these in the series “Facing the Cross”, lifting our eyes to Christ who came to show us the way of the cross as our way of life and to rescue us from the hold of sin - that we might see him face-to-face in heaven.
Once again we join area churches in a pulpit exchange each Wednesday in Lent. In a series of sermons called “Facing the Cross, we will be led to fix our eyes upon the cross of Christ as we face the many challenges of this world and our sinful nature. Plan on making worship a priority this Lenten season.

Stewardship at St.Paul's
In all aspects of our ministry and mission it is our desire to be.....Good Stewards of God's Grace. Our stewardship of time, talent and treasure begins with the recognition that God is a generous giver. We believe in giving the stewardship of money regularly and according to God's generosity. We also teach the concept of Growth Giving---beginning where one is and growing toward or beyond the Biblical pattern of the tithe - 10%.
Our MISSION is to teach and live God's Word, share God's love, sing God's praise, bring God's love to our community and world, and build right relationships inspired by God's grace.

Capital Campaign One obvious result of an extensive ministry is facilities that need repair and renovation. It is important to properly care for what God has entrusted to us-so that our vision can continue to grow. We have initiated a capital campaign that will invite members, CDS Families and friends of the congregation to make a special gift toward these renovations.
