We are a church that honors our traditions,
lives into our future, is progressive in our theology,
and traditional in our worship.
We worship @ 10:30am Sunday mornings. Our service is open to everyone. We gather in our quaint sanctuary where we pray together, share together, sing together and challenge each other to be church in the community.
We believe church is important to share with our children. We enjoy having babies and young children participate in our service. Pastor Tim shares a children’s message with children (all ages) mid-service. Afterward children may go (age 3-K) to the Fellowship Hall for a special story time overseen by Safe Sanctuary certified leaders.
We serve communion the first Sunday of every month and during special services. We believe communion is open to all, yet required by none and includes children (with their parents’ permission).
Come early for Worship and join us for coffee, snacks, and some great conversation and/or feel free to stay and fellowship following the service.
Saint Paul's is here for everyone. If you find yourself unable to get to church, need a ride or some assistance around the house, contact us! We are here for you!

At Saint Paul's, visitors become family.
Saint Paul's began as a community church in 1900, formed out of a German Reformed tradition. In 1957, the Evangelical and Reformed Church and the General Council of the Congregational Christian Churches united, creating the United Church of Christ (ucc.org). It was and is said that the United Church of Christ is founded on unity, not doctrinal polity.
Pastor Tim came to Saint Paul's during a sabbatical in January of 2016. He began serving as our Licensed Minister in January of 2017 and was formally installed in June of 2017 and is on track for full ordination in 2019.
Saint Paul’s is a member of the Penn Central Conference (pccucc.org) and the Central Association.
