we can embrace the goodness of Jesus and do not have to be alone.”

Generosity Speaks…
St. Paul’s is blessed through your contributions to support community ministries and organizations which continue to provide care and share the love of God with others.  The Generosity Speaks series shines a light on how St. Paul’s faithfully ministers in the community by the sharing of our monies, gifts, and talents which have been entrusted to us through the generosity of our members.  We often are not aware of how our gifts are used and the extent of our outreach in the community, so these videos and personal testimonies are meant to highlight our stewardship in the hope of inviting continuing and growing generosity. 
Thank you to Sarah Lefler from Mar-Lu-Ridge for sharing!
