1. ATTENTION ALL MEMBERS! Join us Sunday, June 5, for the celebration of PENTECOST, the Coming of the Holy Spirit and the Birthday of the Church!
2. MUSIC! The Enjoyment of Music is one of God’s greatest gifts! If you like to sing, please join our Special Music Group. No special abilities needed, just a love of singing and a desire to praise God through song. Our goals are to enrich our congregational singing and offer special music from time to time. We also invite you to submit a favorite hymn! Music is for everyone! Help us make St. Paul’s a singing congregation! See Mariane or Jim with questions!
We WELCOME you to worship! St. Paul’s is a WELCOMING Faith Community and whether you are a first-time visitor or a long-time member you are a Blessing to us. You are invited to worship with us live on Sundays at 10:15.
