We are a Community, Serving a Larger Community!

We are known for our ministry of telling the Christmas story through our Annual Lamp Light services, held December 22, 23 and Christmas Eve at 7:30 p.m. It's a tradition started in 2000, the year we reopened St. Paul's. Oil lamps replace the usual electrical lighting and we step back in time a hundred years. Each night features special music and favorite Christmas carols, reading of the Christmas story from Luke's Gospel and a closing candle light ceremony.

Our restored buildings are an important part of our community ministries;

we want to give back to others because much has been given to us.

We host community organizations from time to time.

A group of home schooled children and their parents use our Mullen Hall at times for a special activity.

In January 2014 we welcomed the Mosby Heritage Association

for an event celebrating the 150th Annivesary of the Battle of Loudoun Heights.

In May we hosted Eugene Scheel's history class for an evening dinner and to view the church.

Our pastor is a minister to a larger community and is still a visiting pastor.

He [as well as the church facilities] is available for weddings, funerals and pastoral care 

and a resource for others in the community beyound our congregation.

In 2012 we hosted Kirk and Cindy Sinclair, along with others aiding their walk across the United States.

On the 327th day of a jouney following the American Discovery Trail -- April 14, 2012 -- they stayed overnight

in our church's Mullen Hall; they joined us for breakfast and Kirk preaced a sermon on Micah 6:8:

He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you

But to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God

Now Cindy is dealing with early onset Alzheimers disease and they are preparing for another hike.

As have many families and congregations,

we have felt the shock and disbelief of a tragic incident of domestic violence.

Love > hate

Take the Pledge

I Promise

to never, ever

hit, hurt, or otherwise harm

a woman, girl, or child.

I understand I am bigger and stronger

than many women, girls, and children.

Therefore this is my DUTY

to NEVER HARM them;

But rather to Protect, Respect, Honor, and Love them

no matter what.
