Children and Youth

Children’s Ministry

St. Paul’s children’s ministry operates under three main goals:

  1. Teaching, encouraging, and supporting kids’ relationship with God.
  2. Integrate kids into all parts of St. Paul’s community and worship.
  3. Give kids opportunities to serve and relate to our greater community.

Meet Meaghan Thomas

Children's Ministry Communicator (Volunteer)

Hello, my name is Meaghan Thomas and I am the Children’s Ministry Communicator at St. Paul’s. I’ve been a member here since 2014 and also currently serve on our Vestry.  I am a teacher at Wrightsville Beach Elementary and I love working with children and youth!  I am so excited for all of the wonderful things we have in store for the children here at St. Paul’s!

When not at church or teaching, you can find me spending time with my family: my husband, Greg, and our daughter, Amelia (age 6!)

Please reach out to me with any questions about Children’s Ministry!
