Sunday: 8:00 & 10:30am
St. Paul’s offers basic instruction in God’s Word as an essential ingredient for membership. It allows an individual to test the pastors as well as make sure the teaching is in line with God’s word. This path promotes spiritual growth and allows someone to join with confidence. Both pastors participate at times teaching the course. We try to make the course fit into your schedule. Often courses are done in groups, but it is possible at times to have them one on one.
St. Paul’s offers many Bible classes. Sunday at 9:20 am in the gymnasium is for all teens and adults. We cover topics and books of the Bible. Wednesday at 8:45 am in the commons we have a Bible class for any adults. College aged up through retirees enjoy this one. We offer parenting Bible studies several times a year on a range of issues. Selectively we offer leadership studies or even a Thursday night Bible study. Please check the calendar or the upcoming events for these.
Every year since 2003 the first weekend of December is the St. Paul’s Living Nativity. In 15 minutes, we present the Bible story of Jesus’ birth to all who come to hear. Actors, animals, and choirs come together to let you experience what it was like. We also have warm drink and cookies available in our gymnasium, which we decorate to resemble the little town of Bethlehem. Tables are set up, lights are dimmed, and Christmas music fills the air to make an enjoyable family atmosphere. Of course, all of this is free. St. Paul’s does not solicit donations or leave baskets out. It is one way we love to serve our community.
The second Saturday of August every year we host the St. Paul’s Car Show. Cars and Motorcycles are both welcome to register. We do have voting for the best in show. There is a canteen with an assortment of food and drink, as well as a bake sale benefiting congregational teens. Bouncy castles for kids are available. The cost to register a vehicle for the car show is very minimal.
St. Paul’s throughout the year has special gathering events: Family Nights with bouncy castles in our gymnasium, Urban Artique/Board and Brush styled events to create decorative items, Church Picnics, Game nights, etc. We also have opportunities for open gym: volleyball or basketball. We have a church dartball group. Please check the calendar or look at the events area of the website to see what is upcoming!
Every Wednesday the moms gather. Twice a month there are craft based and play based activities with mothers and children. The remaining two times a month childcare is provided for the children in our gymnasium and the moms gather for spiritual growth and studies in God’s Word.
PTF is a group of parents and teachers involved in school matters. They participate in parent Bible studies. There are several fund drives carried out to support aspects of the school. Families devote time to help clean the school. They are also involved with several fellowship events, such as Family Fun Night.
All ladies of the congregation are welcome to join Ladies Aid, which meets monthly from September through May for Bible study and fellowship. The ladies work together for the glory of God to serve for funerals and to assist the congregation and synod with financial contributions.
Open to any interested members, the history committee meets four times a year. The committee maintains binders preserving records and documents, obituaries, wedding bulletins, articles, and photos. A history cabinet in the church library displays memorabilia from the 150+ years of the congregation.
