Pastor Dala Lawrence

Pastor Dala

I am a Licensed Local Pastor serving St Paul UMC as of July 1, 2017. I am married to my husband Neil and we have three adult children and 4 beautiful grandchildren. I love spending time with my family and try to do so as often as possible. I am a craftaholic and I especially love making jewelry and painting. I'm an avid reader and enjoy mysteries the most but will read just about anything.

My greatest passion of all is serving my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I want everyone to know him and love him and have a relationship with him. I serve a mighty God and He loved me enough to send his Son to die on a cross for me. I want the world to know this and am trying to do my part to transform the world one soul at a time.

I clean homes, churches, etc for a living, and help out on the farm where I reside. I have been a 4-H leader of the Home make section of the Brighton Farm Hands for many years. I have served on the Board of Elders and Deacons, but more importantly, I am a Sunday School teacher at the Zion EPC Church in Fosterburg, which is my home church. For fun I love to country line dance and kick back with family and friends.

pianistI am a music teacher with over 20 years experience in both public and private schools.  Each summer I enjoy playing the tuba in the Alton Municipal Band.  In addition to the tuba, I also play guitar and piano. I live in Brighton with my wife, Susan.  In my free time, I enjoy hunting, fishing and attending St. Louis Cardinal baseball games. I am happy to use my musical talents at St. Paul UMC to praise and worship God!
