“May God be with us in the future, as we strive to better understand His truth, and to apply that truth to all of life.”
Rev. David L. Blackwelder

“When we build, let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight. Nor present use alone. Let it be such work as our descendants will thank us for, and let us think as we lay on stone, that a time will come when those stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, ‘See! This our Father did for us’.”

John Ruskin


“The future of St. Paul’s is clearly filled with opportunities for a full and meaningful ministry for Jesus Christ. With the continued direction of our Lord, and the dedication and service of our members and friends I am convinced that St. Paul’s congregation can reach higher goals than ever before in it’s history.”

Rev. David L. Blackwelder



If it is the Lord’s will, I pray that St. Paul’s continues to be a place of worship; a community in Christ that encourages learning and exploration for all believers. As followers of Christ learn and grow in their faith they will share the Good News through service to their fellow man. That was the great commission we were given over two thousand years ago

And in continuing to strive toward that purpose we fulfill God’s design for His church.”
