Community at ST. PAUL'S
The greatest need of our children is to know and cherish the infinite value of God. We want our children to treasure Jesus alone as the One who saves and satisfies the heart. ST. PAUL'S welcomes children as a vital part of the church community. We strive to provide a safe and loving environment for all of our children as we take seriously our partnership with parents in nurturing their children in their relationship with God through age appropriate activities.
ST PAUL'S offers a range of ministries and activities for your high school and middle school students with a goal of working with parents to achieve this end. From camps and road trips to weekly Bible studies and large group meetings, there are numerous ways for your teen to get involved in the life of the church and to grow in his or her love of God. Our Sunday school and youth group teaching materials are targeted at the issues of today's youth. We desire to deepen the student's understanding of Scripture and its application.
Young Professionals is a ministry of ST. PAUL'S for young adults in their 20's and 30's. We seek to fulfill the need for genuine community and the desire to serve in practical ways by gathering regularly to engage in each other's lives and the life of the church. Our goal is to encourage members to love and serve God with abandon, which in turn enriches the entire body of Christ.
"Men of ST. PAUL'S" includes all men who call ST. PAUL'S their church home. It is our desire to provide the opportunity for men to build authentic relationships with other men while growing in the Lord. Believing that we need each other to walk circumspectly in this world, rightly applying the Word of God to every aspect of our lives, we provide multiple opportunities for men to enter into relationship with other men in study, service to others, and fun times together.
The women's ministry of ST. PAUL'S exists to fulfill our Biblical role as women in the church. Our focus is to encourage and equip women to understand sound Biblical doctrine and to teach love for the church, Christ's body. We hope to exhort women to live effectively in their role as Christian women in the church, the home and the community. All women are welcome to be part of our Bible studies that meet on Tuesdays (morning and evening) throughout the school year.
Caleb's Pilgrims is an active ministry to ST. PAUL'S seniors and is committed to seriously studying God's Word, vigorously encouraging one another in the Christian hope, and actively pursuing avenues of redemptive service, all for God's glory! You don't have to be a senior or a member of ST. PAUL'S Church to come to our Bible study; you just have to have a heart for learning and fellowship! Come join us at the church every Tuesday morning during the school year at 10 am for fellowship and teaching.
Building community is a key component of life in the church. If we are going to learn, grow, and live and serve together we need to know one another, which means spending time together in a variety of contexts. Home Groups bring together people who enjoy good fellowship, food, discussion, prayer and service. These groups meet in homes throughout the Orlando area to foster a sense of community and to reduce travel time and distance.
An important part of life at ST. PAUL'S is regular and ongoing mercy ministry. We seek to serve needy members of our congregation and sister congregations, selected ministries, our neighborhood and the surrounding community in a way that promotes broad involvement by families and individuals of all ages. We plan and organize three Saturday community outreach days each year during which we undertake various projects. Community Service Workdays in 2013 are on February 23, June 29, and October 26.
Biblical, historical and traditional music has been, and will continue to be, a primary vehicle of expression in public worship. Music uniquely combines both intellect and affections, allowing us to worship God with our entire being; mind, heart, sould spirit and body. We desire people of all ages to express their love for Christ and gratitude towards God through the use of their musical gifts. Choirs for children, youth and adults afford singers a wonderful opportunity for worship and fellowship.
