We have three churches: St. Paul’s in Lancaster where year-round services are conducted and where the Sunday School is located; St. Timothy’s in Lost Nation, where special services are held; and St. Mark’s in Groveton where summer and special services are held. Adding to the beauty of the church is the only Memorial Garden in Lancaster.

In the picture, Sunday school children show the rainbow they made during the Noah’s ark lessons.
The rainbow is God’s promise that He will never again destroy the world by flood.

Services are held on Christmas Eve and Easter. (check this site or call St. Paul’s for current information).
For several weeks during the summer, St. Mark’s is the site for free breakfasts for children in the Title I Program at Groveton Elementary School.
St. Mark’s is also the location for the Groveton Summer Program, offering enrichment opportunities for children from the Groveton School. This program is staffed by professional educators and is overseen by a committee from St. Paul’s, with funding from local businesses and grants.
Memorial Garden at St. Paul’s
The Memorial Garden was designed to beautify the grounds of St. Paul’s Church. It serves as a place of rest, reflection and prayer, as well as a repository for the ashes of parishioners and their families.
Tucked away behind the Parish Hall, it is the only Memorial Garden in Lancaster. Parishioners constructed the walks and brickwork in the shape of a Celtic cross in the spring of l988. A site plan illustrates where twelve members are interred.
An annual Hospice candlelight memorial service is held in the garden each November.
