Choir
The Church Choir is always looking for new voices.

Volunteers
The church is a great place to do volunteer work.  If you have some extra time and would like to help the church or your community, talk to the church office about how you can volunteer with the church.

Track and make Church Donations Online

This web page will allow members of the congregation to access their information in the ChurchTrac software. They will be able to update their information, check their giving and also make a donation online.
If a Congregation member does not have access to the software with thier desired email, they can send a request to the church to have their profile updated with their email address so they can get access.

Hybrid Outdoor Service starting May 23rd, 2020 Due to COVID-19 concerns
We will have one service starting at 9:30AM in the parking lot/pavilion.
This will be a combination "drive-in" style service we had been having the last several weeks and an outdoor service. Social distancing will be expected if you choose to sit outdoors. Limited seating will be available under the pavilion so you can bring your own chairs if you like. Stay in your car if you feel safer doing so and the service will still be broadcast on the radio in the parking lot area. Get out of your car and sit around the pavilion practicing social distancing if you prefer. Do whatever makes you most comfortable until we are together in the sanctuary again.

St. Paul Church has an Area Emergency Food Pantry.
Our pantries are stocked with nonperishable food such as canned vegetables and fruit, beans, rice, cereal, pasta, peanut butter and tuna. Some cleaning supplies, personal care items and paper products are also available.  Food is available to anyone who needs it without obligation, regardless of circumstance and it is free and confidential.  
To access the pantry, call the church office .  The church office is usually only staffed on Tuesdays and Thursdays so you may need to leave a message and someone will return your call or you can e-mail at anytime with your name and number and someone will contact you to set up a time to access the food pantry.

Request from Property and Grounds Committee
As we continue to tend to the needs of our Church property, we invite you to consider donating gift cards from Lowes so that we can purchase needed items. Gift cards can be placed in an offering envelope.  At the present time, painting and improvements are being made to the parsonage.

Regarding the Sunday Bulletins:
The office staff meets on Tuesday mornings to “draft” the bulletin for the following Sunday (including announcements.)  On Thursday the bulletin is finalized.  If you have an announcement for the Sunday bulletin, please have the information in the office (either by e-mail, phone or hand-delivered by  9AMThursday Morning.



The Women’s Organization is beginning to
collect items for layettes.  Items contributed do not have to be new, just clean, no holes and serviceable. Items may be placed in drawer marked “Layettes” in the Sunday School Office. To complete 25 layettes we need:
11 sweaters or sweatshirts with a hat or a hood 25 combs
41 onesies 48 diaper pins
50 sleepers 50 receiving
37 pairs of socks  blankets
82 flat-fold diapers
50 washcloths (full size)

Until further notice, the newsletter will be printed every other month.  The next one to be published will be for May and June.  Articles for the May/June issue need to be submitted by April 20, 2020.

It has been brought to our attention that one of our shut-ins likes to get mail and looks forward each week to receiving the bulletin and enjoys reading the newsletter.  Maybe sending a card or note to our shut-ins is something each of us could do to let them know that they are not forgotten.  If you want the names and addresses of our shut-ins, please call the church office 724-423-2590.
