Carol with Us December 8

Come Carol with Us

nullOur junior and senior high youth invite you to join us for caroling on Saturday, December 8, at 5:00 p.m. We'll bring Christmas cheer to as many as we can in our community, then gather back at the parsonage at 6:30 for refreshments and fellowship. (Special note: If you would be able to go further from home and carol for some of our shut-ins in Bay City or Saginaw, please let Pastor Stolarczyk know. We'd very much like to include them, as well.)

Please note:

  • we will meet at the parsonage, organize, and depart from there
  • this is open to all ages
  • if you can't join us for caroling, you're still invited to come by the parsonage starting at 6:30 for an open house

Advent Series: The Greater One Is Coming

nullMake the most of this season of Advent. Join us for our midweek services under the theme: The Greater One is Coming. We'll build on our study of the book of Hebrews and grow in our understanding of who Jesus is and what He came to do. Be sure to also check out our daily Advent devotions, posted on our Facebook page, as well.

Christmas Flower Orders Available thru Dec. 2

Help us decorate the sanctuary for Christmas

One of the things that makes Christmas... well, Christmas... is a sanctuary decorated with poinsettias in honor of our Lord's birth. You can help us decorate the sanctuary by ordering flowers in honor of a special person or occasion, in memory of a loved one, or simply to the glory of God. (The dedication will be printed in our Christmas Eve and Christmas Day bulletins.) You can then take your flower home and enjoy it after our Christmas Day service. 
Use the form in the Sunday bulletin or the form below to place your order. Payment can be dropped off to the church office (if you ask nicely, the elders might be persuaded to collect them and make sure they're passed along, as well.)
The deadline is December 2, which will be here before you know it!
 

 

Commemoration of Faithful Departed on Nov. 4

nullWe will be observing All Saints's Day on Sunday, November 4. Part of that observance is the Commemoration of the Faithful Departed, in which we remember by name those who have died in the faith during the past year. If you have a loved one who is not a member of St. Paul who died under the faith since November 1, 2017, we would gladly include them in our commemoration. Please submit their names to the church office by October 24. 

Greeting Cards Available in Our Book Nook

Did you know that you can pick up individual or boxed Christian greeting cards the next time you’re at churchnull? Stop by our Book Nook in the basement to see the selection that we have on hand. 

Cards are sold at cost— all proceeds go to purchase additional cards.

Assistance Available from Our Food Pantry

One of the main activities of our Care & Share group is operating a food pantry that helps both our membersnull and people from the community. If you know of anyone in need of food (again, they do NOT have to be members of St. Paul), please call Tracey Reinbold in the church office at 674-8681, Carol Butterfield, or Karen Hahn. Names will remain anonymous.
