The mission of Women’s Ministries is to help the women of St.Paul’s know and grow closer to the Lord Jesus Christ while building authentic, Christ-centered relationships with one another.

Women’s Ministry Planning
“My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words.  Do not let them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to a man’s whole body” Proverbs 4:20-22

Significant Christian books are read each month, Scripture is memorized, and homework is given to deepen one’s walk with the Lord.

Daughters of the King

Daughters of the King (DOK) are women and girls between the ages of seven and one hundred and seven who desire a closer walk with the Lord. We are Christian women, both lay and ordained, who are strengthened through the discipline of a Rule of Life, and supported through the companionship of our sisters. We are all at different stages of our Christian journey – some have just begun and some have been on this path for a long time. But no matter where we are on our sacred journeys, our primary goal is the same – to know Jesus Christ and to make Him known to others.

OUR vision is to know Jesus Christ, to make him known to others, and to reflect God’s love throughout the world. Our daughters focus on prayer, service, and evangelism, and the recent inductees are excited to have their crosses and start this new journey. The Order of the Daughters of the King at St. Paul’s is led by Dawn Schaeperkoetter. Our meetings are the 3rd Sunday at 9 am in Skardon 7 if you would like to join us.

 

Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministry is the one-to-one lay caring ministry that takes place in congregations that use the Stephen Series system.

Altar Guild

Serving as a member of the Altar Guild has provided a means through the ages to sacramentally offer ministry to the Lord Jesus and His body, the Church. All the various tasks performed by the Altar Guild are symbolic enactments of washing our Lord’s feet. It is our response of heartfelt gratitude for the compassion and mercy of Jesus shown to us.

Committees under the Altar Guild include:

  •  Communion Preparation
  • Thursday Unction
  • Making Communion Bread
  • Caring for linens, Brass, and Candles
  • Flower Guild
  •  Baptisms
  • Weddings
  • Funerals

If you feel called to serve in this way, it would be our privilege and delight to welcome you to a uniquely special sacramental ministry to the Lord Jesus and for His people.
