The Church Choir is always looking for new voices.

Council has been in touch with Dean Nila Cogan of the NALC regarding our need for a pastor to fill in each Sunday beginning January 2, 2022.  Dean Nila has assured us that we will have coverage.

The call committee and church council have completed the St. Paul Profile and short video.  These have been submitted to the NALC.  Please pray that God will send a new minister to St. Paul. The video can be viewed on St. Paul’s website under the “about-us” tab.

We will continue to have communion the first and third Sundays of the month.  Please pick up your communion packet in the Sunday School office as we will continue to receive communion in the pews.

We gratefully accept donations for propane to heat the church from the Shopsky family and Mark Linden.

Congratulations to McKenna Mizikar who was part of the Vikings 200 IM relay team win, setting the record at 1 minute, 48.56 seconds during the Westmoreland County Coaches Association championships at Derry High School, helping propel the Vikings girls team to the Class 2A title.

Property and Grounds is ready to take on some much-needed repair jobs such as replacing ceiling tiles, repairing damaged plaster, painting, etc.  They are appealing to the congregation for Lowe’s Gift cards to help pay for necessary supplies.  Any amount will be appreciated.  Lowe’s gift cards can usually be purchased anywhere gift cards are sold.

If you have Thrivent Choice Dollars and wish to donate them to St. Paul, please advise Thrivent to do so.

We need an acolyte, bell ringer and lector for each worship service. Sign-up sheet is available in the Sunday School Office.   The Scripture Readings for February are in the newsletter issued January 20.

As always, we have a stocked emergency food pantry for anyone needing help during the holiday season with food insecurity.

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.

Please be vigilant with online activities or any e-mails before clicking on embedded links.  There has been a surge in the volume of online scams. If you have any question or concerns about emails you have received, phone calls you have gotten or your online safety, please feel free to call the church office for assistance.

If your neighborhood has news that you would like to share, please call the office, and leave a message or email us at and we will include it in the announcements and the Newsletter. For example, graduations, yard sales, community events or school accomplishments.
