Our Vacation Bible School (VBS) program for this summer is Operation Arctic: Exploring the Coolest Book on the Planet.
At Operation Arctic VBS, kids will warm up to the Word as they explore the coolest Book on the planet and discover how we can know for sure that the Bible is God’s written word to us! The week will be filled with Bible-learning experiences kids see, hear, touch, and even taste!Kids will sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, participate in bible-learning activities, work with hands-on crafts, and, of course enjoy snacks. Plus, we’ll help them discover how to see evidence of God in everyday life.
- Vacation Bible School (VBS) Family Night: Thursday, July 20th 7:00pm
Come and see what the kids have been working on and learning all week. Let your child/grandchild show you their classroom, meet the teacher, and then join us in the Sanctuary for a fun filled program, you will hear the songs that the children have been learning all week and watch a presentation showing the fun we've had all week.
- Lunch-N-Fun: continues on Wednesdays & Thursdays throughout the summer
Each Wednesday and Thursday during the summer, we will be serving healthy lunches for children/families in the Laurel Springs area. Lunch is distributed from 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm at the Laurel Springs School playground on Stone Rd. We can always use help with the distribution, and the Fun part (crafts, games) throughout the summer. If you would like to volunteer, please see the sign up sheets at the front and rear entrances or call Melissa in the office at 856-783-1839 and let her know.
- Kid’s Life @St. Paul’s - Summer Edition: Wednesday, July 26th 5:00 pm, Gather in the Sanctuary
So, what’s the plan for the summer? Great question! Kid’s Life Summer Edition will begin on Wednesday, July 5th. This program will be a summer mid-week combination of our Sunday morning Discovery Zone and Wednesday Singin’ and Eatin’. The first hour will be a combination of music and creative learning. Dinner will be served from 6 to 6:30, as usual. Then, from 6:30 to 7pm, there will be a game-type activity giving the kids the chance to stretch their legs. There will also be opportunity for the kids to participate in mission-related field trips this summer (i.e. singing at a retirement home and doing other outdoor / recreational activities). Stay tuned for more information! If you or your kids/grandkids may be interested in participating in the fun, please let Ben or Melissa know, or just show up on Wednesday. If you are interested in volunteering to help out on Wednesdays, let them know that as well. Most of all, continue to pray that God would use the ministries of this church to strengthen the faith of the friends and families that attend and participate in our many church programs.
- Adult Sunday School: Summer Series - “The Faith of Our Neighbors”: July 16th at 9:45 am in the Youth Room
The Faith of Our Neighbors” learning series will examine the theology and practices of various other faith traditions in a way that is respectful, compassionate, and charitable. “Sharing” sessions offer the attendees the opportunity to share what they already know (or think they know) about the tradition. “Learning” sessions are a time of instruction provided by the pastoral staff drawing from the faith’s primary source material. “Witnessing” sessions are opportunities for attendees to hear suggestions from the staff and from each other on how to respectfully witness and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ to people from that faith tradition with both kindness and integrity. Sessions will also include video and other media presentations. Come and join in these challenging yet fulfilling discussions!
July 16th: Islam, Part III - “Witnessing”
July 23rd: Mormonism, Part I - ”Sharing”
July 30th: Mormonism, Part II - “Learning”
August 6th: Mormonism, Part III - “Witnessing”

Sunday Worship Services (Non-Holiday)
We worship together at St. Paul's on Sunday mornings at 8:30 am and 11:00 am. Both traditional services are informal, and we expect guests.
Nursery care is provided throughout the morning by our nursery staff who are joined by member volunteers. Children are invited to worship with us throughout the service, stay in the nursery for the service, or, after the children’s moment in worship, go to Kids Ministry (at the 11 am service).
Our sanctuary is accessible by elevator, located by the parking lot entrance. Join us at 8:30 or 11:00 am on Sundays.
Sunday School Program: Sundays at 9:45 a.m.
Out with the old; in with the new. We've recently started up a new program for kids on Sunday morning. It's creative, it's new, it's more like Vacation Bible School (VBS) with kids moving from themed activities to bible-telling to crafts. Once a month, all classes will meet together for a combined presentation. Try it out ... and get ready for this summer's VBS.
We are seeking a Junior and Senior High Director of Youth.
