Reconnect With God

Join us in a special Sunday worship on 9/25 at 9:30 am, for everyone who wants more spiritual community in their lives! We think real relationships — with God and one another — make all the difference in the world. To celebrate this, we’ll have a special Back to Church day 9/25 starting with worship 9:30am. If you’re feeling the nudge to reconnect or check out a new church in the community, we encourage you to come visit! 

Our Sunday service is an energetic contemporary worship that seeks to honor God and inspire us to follow Christ. The praise team opens worship at 9:30am followed by a timely and relevant message from our Pastor. After worship (50min), everyone is invited to stay for coffee. 

We celebrate communion on the first Sunday of every month, and everyone is welcome at God’s table. Every week we share joys and concerns and pray together.  

Come “Accept, Celebrate, and Share God’s Love” with us! 

Saint Paul’s Church is located at 1583 Carney Road, Castleton NY 12033.

Support for Parents of Children with Disabilities

BRUNSWICK – Do you have a child with various disabilities or other needs? You are cordially invited to participate in a support group from the comfort of your own home! This is an opportunity to share concerns, insights, and resources to help navigate through both rewarding and challenging times. The host is Connie Vooys, a former special education teacher and mother to a special needs child. 

The group meets via zoom on the first and third Thursday of the month at 7:00 PM, and is open to all parents and caregivers without regard to geographic or religious boundaries. If you are interested, please write to and Connie will send you an online link to the group and answer any questions you may have. Sometimes a bit of encouragement makes all the difference!

Cancer Support Group

BRUNSWICK – There are very few of us who have not been affected by cancer, either as a patient, family member, or friend. If you are dealing with the stress of this disease for whatever reason, talking with others in similar circumstances can be very beneficial. 

A warm invitation is extended to attend a Zoom cancer support group, led once a month (the third Monday) by retired pastor Ted Wright, he himself a cancer patient. If you have any questions or would like the zoom link, please contact Ted at 

This is a ministry in conjunction with Brunswick Church at 42 White Church Lane (just off Rt. 351). Our worship services are Sundays at 9:30 AM and all are welcome. Church participation is not required to have cancer support.
