A Message from the Pastor

 More about COVID-19...    


         What is the leadership of St. Paul planning during this pandemic? I personally have assembled a team of leaders to aide in the process of planning next steps. We have ensured that maintenance will properly clean and sanitize the facility various times leading up to worship service, discussing plans of additional worship service to aide social distancing, provide you with sanitation supplies around the sanctuary, and avoiding physical contact amongst attendees. We also have been working on our communication system to inform you of any changes of events, services, etc. Please remember that even during this pandemic church expenses continue, so I am asking you to utilize our cash app or drop tithes/offerings to the mailbox outside the church, or even mail them in. Bible study will move to conference call and video chatting rooms beginning March 25th until further notice. Lastly worship service will be abbreviated to one-hour weekly.

       Our prayer is that you will recognize we are operating to the best our ability based upon the information we have been provided from CDC, Governor Office, and Mayor Office. Ultimately until we are mandated to shutdown on Sunday we will continue to convene for worship, in which you have the liberty to attend. My request is for those who are sick that you remain home, those come are in attendance please:

  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

  • Cover coughs and sneezes with tissue or inside of your elbow.

  • Maintain space between you and others.

      I close in these words: Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21


With Love,

Reverend Joshua Goodin


Many are Called, Few are Chosen
