WEEKLY WORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

Due to church renovations our temporary worship space will be held weekly in our Fellowship Hall.

8:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.   The historic liturgy sets the tone for this hour of worship, which includes both time-honored hymns of the Church’s rich tradition and the best new hymns being written.                   

Praise and Worship   On the last Sunday of each month, at 10:30 a.m., we worship in a relaxed, casual style, led by a Praise Team and a variety of instruments.

LENT 2015…beginning with Ash Wednesday,
February 18

No single event in human history has received more attention than the suffering and crucifixion of Jesus of Nazareth. In this Lenten journey, Adam Hamilton guides us through the last twenty-four hours of Jesus' life. With video that is filmed in the Holy Land, participants will experience and understand the significance of Jesus' suffering and death in a way they have never done before. Whether you are a long-time Christian or simply curious about the story of Christ's crucifixion, you are invited to join in retracing the last 24 hours of Jesus' life.

Our MISSION is to teach and live God's Word, share God's love, sing God's praise, bring God's love to our community and world, and build right relationships inspired by God's grace.

The cross...We will take it.
The bread of life...We will break it.
The Gospel... We will live it.
The love of Christ...We will give it.
The pain of the world...We will bear it.
The joy God sends...We will share it.

Stewardship at St.Paul's

In all aspects of our ministry and mission it is our desire to be.....Good Stewards of God's Grace. Our stewardship of time, talent and treasure begins with the recognition that God is a generous giver. We believe in giving the stewardship of money regularly and according to God's generosity. We also teach the concept of Growth Giving---beginning where one is and growing toward or beyond the Biblical pattern of the tithe - 10%.

CLIP THOSE BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION!!!

 

The CDS receives $.10 for each Box Top you save.

A collection jar is outside the school office.


Capital Campaign
One obvious result of an extensive ministry is facilities that need repair and renovation. It is important to properly care for what God has entrusted to us-so that our vision can continue to grow. We have initiated a capital campaign that will invite members, CDS Families and friends of the congregation to make a special gift toward these renovations.

God's Work  ...  Our Hands
On Good Friday, a day when we remember the great sacrifice of Jesus for us, members of St. Paul's will set aside 2-3 hours in a sacrificial act of mercy to build a wheelchair ramp for one of our own - Mr. Clyde Thomas.
 
Will you help?  This will be accomplished in the morning of Friday, April 3. Reply to this note and further details will be sent to you.
