Pamela Cottingham

Church Secretary

Pamela grew up at St. Paul's and feels blessed to be able to serve her church family as secretary here. 

"Through all of life - the good times and the bad - God is with us. We may not understand His plan in the moment, but we hold on to our faith and cling to his promise; and with all the chaos around us, we need to 'be still' and know that He Is God" (vs. 10).

Psalm 46
