Joe Ransone -Outreach Chair
Hi, my name is Joe Ransone. I was baptized in the Catholic church and attended Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic church in Henrico County attending Sunday school and the youth ministry through high school. My family and I came to be at St Paul's because we were looking for a church where we could get to know the congregation and be more involved. We have been attending St Paul's for 7 years. I remember how we were welcomed and greeted so nicely, something I love about St Paul's. Since coming to St Paul's I have been involved in one of St Paul's outreach programs, the Hanover Christian Firewood Ministry.

Steve was raised in a catholic family where he was baptized, confirmed and married. In the search for a new church, and after lots of prayers, God led us to the Episcopal Church which opened our hearts and minds to God. Then in the spring of 2016, a friend from Covenant Woods told us about St Paul’s. We realized immediately that: St Paul’s Church, the community, the wonderful word that we were hearing, was where God meant us to be. We became a “communicant in good standing” and attended Adult Sunday School, Shrine Mont in 2016 and joined the Bible Study Group. God answered our prayers and we were Received into the church on December 12th of this year.
Becki Rosenfeldt - Sunday School & Youth Coordinator
We moved to Hanover in September, 2012. In search of a new church, we looked all over the place and attended many services, but nothing seemed to click. We were looking for a small church that was welcoming to our whole family, especially our children. One Sunday morning we decided to attend the 8AM service at St. Paul’s Church. From the moment we stepped foot in the church, we felt at home. While saying Peace, everyone in the church came over to shake our hands and welcome our family. Unlike the other churches we had visited, they loved having the children in the service. We knew that Sunday that we had finally found our Church family.
