St Paul UCC Church Elevator Fund

Just imagine ...

... You've been coming to St. Paul United Church of Christ for more than thirty years. You look forward to the encouragement of the Sunday church service, but also for the welcoming fellowship afterward in Memorial Hall, which is located on the lower level. That fellowship may be over now as you can barely make it down the stairs to coffee hour.  

... You are a single mom with a daughter who must use a wheelchair. You would love to visit that beautiful old church on Main Street, but there's no way you could get your daughter’s wheelchair up or down the stairs to other levels of the building.


Our Project Includes:

  • Installing an elevator to service the sanctuary and the lower level.

  • Adding a long ramp for easy access to the office level of the building

  • Building a handicap-accessible bathroom on the sanctuary level

Honor your past.

Celebrate your present.

Plan for the future

 Our Mission

At St. Paul United Church of Christ we are dedicated to living out Jesus' words to love one another by welcoming all people and transforming all of our lives through Christ's gospel. We want to make sure that everyone is cared for, that everyone feels welcomed—no matter who they are or where they are on life's journey.

That's why we are launching a campaign to install an elevator for members and guests who find it difficult to be physically mobile will find a place of welcome.
