Auxiliaries (Bereavement to Education Commission) - PAGE 1

Time in Raleigh, North Carolina:

Church auxiliaries are called the “church helpers” or “church supporters.” It is the responsibility of each auxiliary to provide some type of financial support for the Church Program during the conference year. Each group must select a date on the church calendar for its regular meetings as well as its planned activities in support of the Church.
We encourage you to select an organization and become active in your local Church. The more active you are, the more you feel a part of the Church. If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact the Church office at 919.832.2709.


This team of volunteers provides assistance and follow-up care to bereaved St. Paul families beyond the funeral.  This care includes occasional telephone calls, cards and/or visits and a package of spiritual materials to provide comfort and understanding.


This body is appointed annually by the pastor to be responsible for the overall needs of the local church:  finances, pastor, spiritual and general welfare of the members.  They are also responsible for the service of communion to the members and delivery to those who are sick and shut-in. The pastor also appoints a president pro tempore from this board to act on his/her behalf in his/her absence.  The pastor has veto powers on any action taken in his/her absence.


This members of this board are nominated by the Pastor and elected by the membership at an election called by the pastor.  (Except when there is a major indebtedness on the church, i.e. mortgage).  Their responsibilities include the temporal concerns of the church, i.e. church property, buildings, equipment, etc. 


This Commission is responsible for planning and presenting programs and information to educate and enlighten the congregation.  This information is designed to lead to a better and informed knowledge of the Holy Scriptures, the Christian Religion, the Christian Church and the implementation of these values in our daily lives.


This is the women’s usher board for the church.  They provide service on 1st Sundays at 11:00 a.m. and 4th Sundays at 8:00 a.m. and for special events and programs as needed.
