Nurture Faith. Live Respectfully. Give Generously.
Rev. Cheryl McMurray
DSW, BA Psych, MDiv.
Hello Friends, and welcome to St. Paul’s United Church! I joined this Community of Faith in July 2021, and am thrilled to be here.
Who am I, you ask? Well, I am a child of God: daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, friend, knitter, quilter, fan of the Blue Jays, Louis L’Amour westerns, and the Marvel Universe. I was born and raised in the rural village of Campbellcroft, and in my childhood faith community of Garden Hill United Church. I come to this work of ministry later than some, but I consider my previous work in family services just as much a calling as this is. I offer my gratitude to God, Christ and Spirit for gifts given and this journey in ministry, and I pray for guidance in their use in service to God and to this community of faith.
I hope to meet you soon 😊.
