Welcome to the Nursery at St. Paul'sl
St. Paul's is blessed with a volunteer-staffed nursery for each of its Sunday Services. Children, ages infant through 6 years, are
welcome to come to the nursery. The nursery volunteers and an usher bring the children to the sanctuary for a children's sermon after the reading of the gospel at each service. After the children's sermon, the adults take the children back to the nursery.
We thank the volunteers for their time. We are blessed with
dedicated volunteers that maintain a safe, fun nursery environment.
In addition to the nursery volunteers, there is a Parent Forum
committee that meets about once a month to discuss needs and issues
regarding the children (infant to teens) and families. Sue Comer is the
Parent Forum Chairperson.
Volunteering at St. Paul's
At St. Paul's there are many areas for you to offer your time and talent.
We believe we have something for everyone.
There are regular opportunities to help with our Sunday morning worship
services by setting up for communion, greeting fellow members at the door,
being an usher who hands out bulletins and takes the collection,
reading the lessons or assisting with communion.
We hold many special events throughout the year that involve many people. Our Annual Chicken Barbecue. Friends of Music recitals, Vacation Bible
School, Annual Picnic, Halloween Party, Christmas Decorating and our
Christmas Pageant are just some of the rewarding events we hold each year.
St. Paul's also provides a great opportunity to help the local and world
community. Saint's Place. Pittsford Food Cupboard. Eastern Service
Workers, the Salvation Army, World Hunger, Church World Service and
Habitat for Humanity are some of the charities
we support with regular fundraisers.
This is just a small sample of all the opportunities to be
a volunteer with St. Paul's.
