+ Endowment Board

The Endowment Board has been in operation since the mid-1990s and is working to create a legacy environment at St. Paul’s. Throughout the year, they host special events geared toward assisting members with estate planning and financial protection for them as they age. This is a five-person voting board assisted by a variety of advisors.

+ Finance Committee

The Finance Committee meets regularly to review congregational finances, operations, assets and property. The Committee works in support with the Council, its committees, and St. Paul’s missions and ministries. The Committee carefully manages the resources and takes the responsibility to prepare a yearly budget.

+ Mission & Vision Team

St. Paul's Mission & Vision program allows members to share the joy of giving. Our goal is to continue to inspire generous sharing and enjoy the blessing we receive in return.

+ Technology & Communication Committee

The Technology & Communications Committee’s mission is to strategize with, advise, enable, and assist staff, ministries, and groups at St. Paul’s on how best to leverage technology to fulfill the mission of our church, both in our congregation and within the community.

+ Facility Team

This ministry group assists with the day-to-day upkeep of the church as well as the long range maintenance that must be done. Volunteers complete weekly, monthly, yearly, and special projects as the need arises, including:

  • Sanctuary clean-up
  • Bi-annual clean-up days
  • Interior/exterior painting projects
  • Weekly mowing/trimming
  • Spring/fall flower bed preparation
  • Snow removal

+ Children's & Family Ministry Team

The Children’s and Family Ministry Team meets throughout the year to plan opportunities for children and families to learn, play, and serve together. This team is one that helps with weekly tasks, but also creates a long-range plan and vision to help the ministry grow. Anyone who loves Jesus, children, and bringing all ages together is welcome to serve on this team. We need those who are task-oriented and dreamers.
