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.
