St. Paul's group ministry is thriving! We have many dedicated members who regularly participate in discussion, activities, and ministry with one another. This helps us stay connected in Christ and with one another--because ministry does not only happen on Sundays.
The groups at St. Paul's vary in mission, including games, fellowship, service projects, and more. Interested in joining a small group? More details below.
Lydia Circle meets on the first and third Wednesdays of each month at 9:30am. This group focuses on sewing and quilting projects, Bible study, and positive fellowship with encouraging sisters in Christ .
Miriam Circle meets on the third Thursday of the month at 1:00 pm. This group makes personal contact with shut-in members each month and also sends birthday cards to members who are 75 years and older.

Adult Choir: The Adult Choir is a valued part of St. Paul’s music ministry. The choir sings at both services most every Sunday. We do have a summer break. The choir sings all different types/kinds of music, usually in four part harmony. We also assist the congregation with learning new liturgies and hymns. There is always time for fun. We would like for YOU to join our ‘family’. We rehearse on Wednesday evenings at 7:30 in the church balcony. Please contact Fanchon Crane if you have any questions!
Chime Choir: The adult Chime Choir's objective is to add another element to the worship services at St. Paul's. You may find yourself humming along to familiar melodies or contemplating on scripture as we play. We rehearse on Thursday evenings at 6:30.
Altar Guild takes care of the church's altar and its appointments. They deliver altar flowers used on Sundays, if asked, to shut-ins or hospital patients. They do not meet monthly, but instead on an as-needed basis.
