There are many ways to get involved at St. Paul’s. We have a wide variety of committees that support the ministries and programs of our church. Contact the church office at email@example.com or any of the committee members to learn more.
The Altar Guild are members of St Paul’s who are servants: of God, of God’s people, of the liturgy, and of the worship space. They:

Our building and grounds are one of our biggest assets, both to enjoy and to share with the community. The Building & Grounds Committee ensures the building and surrounding property is well maintained and safe for church and community groups to use the space.
The Mission Endowment Committee oversees the Mission Endowment Fund. The Endowment Fund supports the overall mission of St. Paul’s to spread the word, build a strong community and make the world a better place. Annually, the Mission Endowment Committee recommends to the Council the distributions to be made from the Endowment Fund.
The Committee consists of three to five members chosen by the Church Council who serve terms of three years.
Laurie Zaucha - Chair
Our faith and relationship with God are always growing and changing as we grow in maturity and experience. The role of this committee is to offer opportunities for people to actively engage with their faith and spiritual growth. They plan events for children and families, such as Family Faith Nights and Vacation Bible School, offer guidance on adult education opportunities such as our annual Lenten series, and consider how to approach faith and learning in engaging, holistic, and creative ways.
The Fellowship Committee plans and executes social events within the St. Paul’s community. Our purpose is to bring members of the church closer together, increase the frequency of member contact to create stronger bonds and friendships, and build the reputation of our congregation as one of activity, fun and inclusion.
We draw from the entire congregation’s talents and energy, and involve many members to execute events. Participation cures apathy! We encourage participation from all corners of the congregation with activities appealing to both young and old, resulting in greater appeal for potential new membership.
The mission of the Finance Committee is to facilitate the faithful stewardship of our financial resources. This committee oversees the financial wellbeing of the congregation and ensures congregational expenses are within the annual budget approved by the congregation and funds available.
The Finance Committee shall consist of at least 4 voting members of the congregation and shall be appointed by the Church Council. Accounting, financial or business experience preferred.

The function of the Mutual Ministry Committee is to encourage positive communication and cooperation between this congregation's members, the various committees of this congregation, and the congregation staff as they each perform their ministries in service to God. The Committee acts as a sounding board for related to staff that may arise from within our congregation, discussing such topics in a confidential setting and taking such action as seems to be appropriate and consistent with our Christian values.
The Mutual Ministry Committee shall consist of six members appointed jointly by the Congregation President and the pastor and ratified by the Council.
Patty Cain - Council Liaison
In keeping with our vision to build a strong community and make the world a better place, our congregation engages in service ranging from collections for various agencies, to hands on projects, to advocacy. This team facilitates those ministries, and seeks opportunities to expand our outreach, that we might share God's love with ever more people.
Worship is the center of our lives together. This committee considers the worship needs of the congregation for every season, and supports our pastor and music director in planning and executing meaningful worship. We see music as an integral part of our worship ministry, and this committee helps with fundraising and planning to bring excellent music to our congregation and community.
