Rally Day / Sunday School Kick-Off – Sunday, September 8th! All are invited to this exciting morning at St. Paul’s as we kick off the fall schedule of worship and education. The day will include the installation of our Education leaders and the first Sunday of Bible study and activities for kids, youth, and adults. Worship at 9:00 am with Education Activities, Fellowship, and Food to follow!

Sunday School Leaders Needed: When little ones are brought to the Lord to be baptized here at St. Paul’s, we as the church family promise “to do everything within our power to support these parents in their ministry, and in loving and life-giving ways to foster their little one’s growth in faith.” As we strive to fulfill those promises, the Board of Education is looking for volunteers to serve as leaders in our Sunday school this year. All the resources are provided for you to share God’s Word with the kids and youth. Our goal is to have multiple leaders for each age group, so no one has to commit to leading every Sunday. Whether you’ve led Sunday school in the past (maybe even a long time ago!), or you’ve never done it but are interested, we’d love to talk to you about leading this year. Please contact Board of Education chair Natalie Jury or Pastor Manor if you have any questions or to express your interest in leading this year.

Sunday Schedule – beginning September 15th

In an effort to best serve the needs of the St. Paul’s family, the following Sunday morning schedule will be implemented for the fall. If you would like further details, please see the email sent from the Board of Elders this week, or pick up a copy of the email in the narthex.
