St. Paul's Players 


The St. Paul’s Players is a drama ministry with the following goals: to serve as an outreach to members of the congregation and the community; to offer theater experiences and opportunities within a safe environment to any person who wishes to participate; to allow students and families the chance to benefit from everything that theater has to offer; and, through drama and the skills work in the theater develops, to reach more children and families with the love and fellowship of the Gospel and instill in them a deeper sense of their giftedness and worth as God’s children.

We conduct all productions in a professional manner, holding auditions and teaching participants about every aspect of the theater.  We have at least one major production each year and assist in other aspects within the Church's ministries.  Many first time thespians have been associated with the "St. Paul's Players" and have gone on to be cast in local community theaters.  For each production, we select a "Cast Project" to help a charitable organization in our community.
