St. Paul’s is a church rich in volunteers and volunteers are the backbone of the church. Volunteers perform the labor, work as teachers, and share the ministry of St. Paul’s. Volunteering is an opportunity for members to become close to god by serving in His name, and by serving side-by-side with those in His family. You are welcome to volunteer in any capacity in which you feel comfortable. Below is a listing of some of the committees at St. Paul's along with a small description of their function. But keep an open mind; the function of these committees is only limited by a lack of imagination. Ask yourself, how else can St. Paul’s serve God and our community? Be creative, volunteer, make a difference. It will enrich your life.
