Welcome to St Paul's UCC 

Grounds Beautification

Serving Others Through Love Of Creation!!

Genesis 2:9 9The LORD God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground-trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

The recent removal of dead trees and those trees causing issues where planted has highlighted the opportunity to continue our beautification of our church grounds in support of our Love Of Creation and reduce the impact of climate change with trees acting as a cleaner, or filter for the air, absorbing CO2 and expelling fresh oxygen into the atmosphere.

We’d love to have more trees on our St. Paul’s UCC beautiful property.   If you would be interested in sponsoring/purchasing a tree for St. Paul’s, we have a list of 17 different locations on the property (please see the Tree Map below), along with 2 Pennsylvania Native tree options for each location. The various types of trees for sponsorship/purchase are identified by category below. Some trees are in several categories.  In addition to individuals -- families, groups of families, committees or Sunday School classes could join together to sponsor a tree to continue the Love of Creation at St. Paul’s.  

Sponsorship forms are available below, or contact the church (or Kim) and we can get one to you.  

This Tree information has been brought to you from the Green Team (a subcommittee of the Building/Dreams and Visions Committee).   We consulted with a local PA Certified Arborist from CV Tree Service to get these environmentally friendly PA native recommended trees for the specific locations.  Please feel free to research any of the trees to get more information that you would want.  

Please contact Kim Pirtle at Kim.Pirtle@aol.com for additional information.  

Have a Tree-mendous Day!

We are united through Christ

We believe in the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

God is the creator of the universe and giver of all that is good. God is the savior—known boldly and intimately in Jesus and his life, death, and resurrection—who shows us how to live and love. God is the Spirit who enables us to make a difference in our world and in the lives of others. We believe that grace is the love, honesty, and compassion that God gives and shows us in Jesus. It’s how Jesus saves us, heals us, sets us free, and increases our capacity for love. We believe that we need each other. Whether single, married/partnered, divorced or widowed, it’s a lot easier to follow God with friends than it is by ourselves. Our Faith Is 2000 Years Old, Our Thinking Is Not.
The United Church of Christ believes that the revelation of God is not locked in the past, but continues today. The God Is Still Speaking ad campaign, initiated during Advent of 2004, proclaims that belief.
