  • Graduation Cap  College cOnnection

    A key goal of our College Connection team is to encourage our college students in their Christian faith during these years of early independence, as well as to help connect them to a church near their campus. 

    Our College Connection team sends personal cards and care packages to our students several times a year, and —especially important— offers a prayer ministry to them as well. This outreach is focused on keeping our college-age students connected to their home church during these important years, as well as keeping them up-to-date on St. Paul's happenings. 

    COLLEGE PARENTS: We don't want your college student to miss out! Please help us keep our College Connection mailing lists up-to-date by passing along your student's mailing address, email address and mobile number. Please call the church office or click here to provide current contact information.

  • Utensils Dinner for Eight

    Dinner groups are forming now! Register online here.  

    "Dinner for Eight" groups at St. Paul’s are a great way to meet new friends or stay connected with longtime friends. Our dinner groups, based on common interests or seasons of life, gather together about once a month to enjoy good food and fellowship with each other.

    Groups choose home or restaurant dinners. Each individual or family takes a turn to be the “host” home within the group. Dinner can be as fancy or casual as your group of eight prefers. If you have any questions, please contact Carrie Patterson.
