2016-2017 Mission Sundays
Mission Sundays are opportunities for all parishioners to gather for an hour to address a local need in the community. The new season of Mission Sundays is about to begin, with our first one on September 18.  As our tradition in September, we are asking for donations of backpacks and new school supplies for the B-Ready program which "helps to bridge the learning gap between low-income students and their more affluent peers."  All backpacks will be blessed at the blessing of the backpacks during the 10:00am service. (Target and TJMaxx have large selections of backpacks of various sizes and prices.)
St. Paul's All Parish Retreat: September 30 - October 2, 2016

Register Now
for the St. Paul's 2016 All Parish Retreat
"You CAN take it with you!"
How do we bring our experience of St. Paul's on a Sunday into our lives on the other six days of the week? What might this mean for parenting, work or other things we do routinely? Can we find everyday "altars in the world" that bring us closer to God?
This year's Parish Retreat will explore this theme in the context of fun, fellowship, rest and worship.
