What makes a good Christian steward? Safeguarding material and human resources and using them responsibly are one answer; so is the generous giving of time, talent and money. But being a good Christian steward should mean so much more. At St. Paul’s Church we believe that as Christian stewards, we receive God’s gifts gratefully, cultivate them responsibly, share them lovingly in justice with others, and return them with increase to the Lord. Jesus’ disciples and Christian stewards recognize God as the origin of life, giver of freedom and source of all things. We are grateful for the gifts we have received and are eager to use them to show our love for God and for one another. We continually look to the life and teaching of Jesus for guidance in living as Christian stewards. “As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace” 1 Peter 4:10: We are truly blessed at St. Paul’s and we hope you respond by using your God-given gifts to serve one another as good stewards. Each and every one of us is a priority to God. Please make supporting your Church a priority in your life.

Touch of Light Campaign
The Vestry of St. Paul’s is continuously evaluating how to offer responsible and faithful leadership for the parish. Mindful of the debt left from building the Youth Activities Building, the desire to make our worship space (Church) warmer and more inviting, and mounting maintenance needs, a successful appeal was instrumented. Additional projects included replacing our sound system and developing an outdoor classroom in conjunction with our church’s new Early Education Center gave further impetus for a capital campaign. Donations to the capital campaign will continue to be accepted for the next two years.
St. Francis Fund

The St. Paul’s Perpetual Memorial Fund will be an annual reminder of what certain people have meant to our lives of faith and our church. A gift to the fund establishes a permanent memory of these wonderful saints and honors, celebrates, and gives thanks to God for their witness and example. But the fund does more. It sets into place a practical reality, a pool of resources, for future projects such as major capital needs as St. Paul’s continues to try to grow as “a city on a hill.” Past witnesses will inspire future growth.
