michael kopp - senior warden


My name is Michael Kopp and I have been a member of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church for my entire life.  My maternal grandparents Faye and Wilbur Schurman were members of St. Paul’s and I literally grew up in the same church my mother (Mary Kopp) grew up in.  Sunday school, confirmation class, acolyting, youth vestry member, and the baptism of my own three children are just some of the experiences that make up my timeline at St. Paul’s.  Like anybody, I have had many challenges and changes as I have moved through the phases of life.  My St. Paul’s family has been a constant source of comfort and support at every twist and turn.  When your roots run deep it is easy to love something, and serving on vestry is one small way to give back to a church that has given me so much through the years.


bruce hicks - treasurer


Originally from Jefferson, I spent 20+ years in the US Navy retiring as a Master Chief Petty Officer. I have attended ST Paul’s since 1996 along with my wife Sheila who is a lifelong member of ST Paul’s. Because of my military service I have had the opportunity to attend church services from a variety of different Christian denominations and have found that it is the People who make a church not necessarily the church affiliation. I have served on Vestry, been Senior Warden and Treasurer. I have served in these positions because I feel that the mission of ST Paul’s is important to both our congregation and the community.

I have lived in most of my life in Lancaster. St. Paul's is my home. Vestry is a part of making things flow well and making a difference for the church and its members. Vestry is just another part of the core that I will enjoy being a part of it.

Hello my name is Amanda Wetherbee. I'm 24 years old and I live right in the middle of Lancaster. I am a soon to be graduate with my BA in Human Services with a minor in Early childhood. I have been apart of St. Pauls for about 24 years and have enjoyed being apart of many aspects of the church community including Sunday school, youth group, acyolyting, lay reading, and lecturing. I'm hoping Vestry will be another big part of my life here at St. Paul's.
