Where and Who We Are
St. Paul’s is located in the small, friendly town of Quarryville, in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
The town has a population of 2,600, with 15-20,000 people in the surrounding region.
Tourism, farming, and small businesses are the principal industries.
The city of Lancaster is nearby for shopping, entertainment, colleges, and cultural activities.
Quarryville is located in the Solanco (Southern Lancaster County) School District
and we are fortunate to have a local library.
St. Paul’s Church has a history that dates back to 1852 when it was founded by a small group of Huguenots
in the German Reformed Tradition. The third and current building was built on the site at 1 West Fourth Street in 1930.
An addition has been made to the main sanctuary to provide Christian preschool programs, Sunday School classrooms,
and youth church facilities.
In 2002 the congregation, after prayerful study, voted to become independent.
In 2013, the congregation decided to pursue affiliation with the Evangelical Association (EA) of
Reformed & Congregational Christian Churches, whose purpose is to network together to further
the cause of our Lord Jesus Christ.
St. Paul's Church continues to keep it's yearly membership with the EA.
Our Church is a congregation run church.
Our Consistory (church board) is made up of Servants on the Pastoral Support Team, Financial Team, and Building Team,
and our Pastor. All Consistory positions are held by male and female members and are elected at the
annual congregational business meeting in January.
The Consistory meets monthly and is open for questions, feedback and discussion from the congregation.
Major decisions are brought before the congregation for discussion and approval at special congregational meetings.
Minutes of the monthly Consistory meetings are distributed to the congregation.
Leadership roles, whether it be church board, Sunday School teachers, bible study leaders, or any other,
are available to any member that feels called by God to serve.
