Our mission is to Teach the World that God is Love.

We do this through worship, music, education, fellowship, and service. In addition to our normal worship services, there are children and adult Sunday School classes, St. Paul’s Preschool, pantry, and so much more. There is a wide variety of Fellowship activities. We serve the York community, our sister congregation in Mpuguso, Tanzania and the LWR.

News

Photos from Ash Wednesday/Valentine’s Senior Luncheon, Second Sunday Sandwiches 2/11/24, Valentine’s Dinner for Young Adults and Children’s Valentine’s Dinner/Party, PreSchool have been loaded to St. Paul’s Gallery and the Slideshow has been updated and the most recent pictures from Mpuguso are shown on that page.  Click here Gallery

Change in Food Pantry Distribution Schedule – Beginning, Tuesday, 1/2/24, the Food Pantry will serve shoppers twice per month.  This change has to do with the growing numbers of people coming to the pantry, the amount of room in the pantry, our volunteer staff, and our limited amount of space for parking.  When there are 5 Tuesdays in a month, we will be closed the 5th Tuesday.

Webpage Calendars – We now have two calendars for viewing on our webpage.  The Calendar tab on the homepage at the top of the page is the monthly calendar you receive with your monthly “Our Church” newsletter and now in the footer at the bottom of the page, there is a weekly calendar.  The problem we were having was updates were done during the month to the events calendar but our monthly calendar was not being updated.  The weekly calendar will reflect any changes made and the footer with the weekly calendar can be viewed from any page on our webpage.  All you have to do is scroll down to the bottom of any page and click on the weekly calendar and scroll down on the calendar to view for the whole week.  Hope this will be helpful!

“Vintage” Members with birthdays in March are: Jim Mummert, Mim Boyer, Anna Mae Cook, Doug Cromer, Jim Bennett and Dottie Moore..  Many happy Birthday wishes to all from your family at St. Paul’s.
