Wherever you are in your journey with God…

You are Welcome Here!

Thank you for exploring our new website.  Just as the people of St. Paul are a work in progress, so is this site.  So, please check back often.

St. Paul Lutheran Church is not about “us”.  It’s about continuously working at trusting and letting the grace of God flow in and through us.  We all have gifts and grace flows when we use them for connecting, growing and going out into the world to serve others.

St. Paul is a place where people can nurture in their faith in Jesus.  We understand and believe, as Paul told Timothy, “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners – of whom I am the worst.”  If you need forgiveness, mercy and compassion then join us – you’ll fit right in.

We are blessed that you stopped by to visit St. Paul Lutheran Church on the web! Our prayer is that you will visit our site frequently to see how the Holy Spirit is at work here and learn how you can become connected.  We are a Lutheran congregation comprising people of all ages.

We pray, too, that you will visit us in person.  We are located at 323 S. Main St. New City, New York.  Here, vibrant worship, authentic friendships, engaging studies and focused mission activities are part of our daily aspiration.

If you can’t find the information you need as you search our website please contact us by phone 845-634-5574, email stpaulnc@gmail.com  or fill out and send our contact form http://www.stpaulnewcity.church/contactus/.

We would love to hear from you!

 

On Easter Sunday, Pastor Rhonda spoke to the children about caterpillars and butterflies.  God created butterflies as a beautiful and marvelous parable of resurrection.  In the life cycle of the caterpillar and its transformation into a butterfly we see the whole story of Christ’s death and resurrection.  The caterpillar represents the Jesus — earthbound and mortal.  Then the caterpillar spins its cocoon, which becomes a chrysalis reminding us how Jesus’ body was taken down from the cross and placed in the newly hewn tomb.  Finally, the butterfly emerges from the chrysalis!  The risen Christ comes forth from the tomb—raised to glorious and eternal life!
