What to Expect

Dear Church Family, through this very difficult year of navigating Covid, and the variants it has been amazing how our church continues to impact our community, and how well we all have maintained working together in our worship as well as our mission opportunities. From our  continuation of KST, Love Quilts Group, Helping Hands, Ramp Crew and Scouts. 

From our in person and online Sunday worship services to our continuation of Sunday School (online and in person), our weekday Bible Study happening on Zoom, to our Coffee With The Pastor, our church has demonstrated great faithfulness! There is no doubt that God is working in us in a mighty way!

KST, (Kids Special Time), is a fun children’s program that  includes introductory Bible Study, crafts, music, puzzles, dramatic plays and story times. This is a self-supporting ministry of our church that helps both our youngest kids and moms within our community. While they too had to take a break, they are back and doing well with the ministry to some of our youngest disciples. We thank Debbie Cain, our director for her diligence in heading up this wonderful ministry. This year has had it challenges but I thank Debbie for her continued navigating and keeping this ministry ALIVE! 

The Love Quilts group was busy each month making quilts again this year! They were able to make plenty of quilts and still have many on hand to give to people as an encouragement of love. They distribute quilts to those who are sick, new moms and babies, as well as many people. 

Helping Hands is another ministry to our community that many have a passion for. It is a benevolence ministry where each week we help families, and many who are  seniors, who need help paying utility bills. This year, to date, we have helped over 40 families. While we cannot solve the problems many of these families face, we do show them our love and support though this wonderful ministry. 

Our Ramp Crew works nearly every Monday helping those with mobility needs safely enter into their homes through newly constructed ramps. I have enjoyed seeing the relationships they developed and the messages of caring love they share with those who often times are so easily overlooked. By the end of this year, even through the shortages of wood and struggles with Covid, our Ramp Crew will have completed 50+ ramps this year, bring our grand total to 379 ramps!  

Scouting is another wonderful ministry of our Church. We thank our scouting leaders for the wonderful work they have done in developing our scouting program. We are blessed to have them gather in our church. This year we were not able to have Scout Sunday, but are looking forward to the day soon when we can return to worshiping together with our scouts. Our Scouts continue to do great things and we thank them for all the great work they  do around our church. We are so glad they are a part of us here at St. Paul’s.   

We had a great and creative year in worship. Our online worship service began the year with over 100 families watching each Sunday, and even in our reopening we have maintained an online  presence with other 30 households each Sunday. This year was highlighted by the special services around our World Communion Sunday  Service and our blessing of the pets.  

Recently we added Angela McReynolds to our staff as Music Minister. She is a very gifted musician capable of leading music in about any form. She is a Pianist, Organist, and Guitarist who is often accompanied by he husband Richard and a wonderful bass player Paul Palma. It is also a joy to have her young son Max help out on a drum.
