SPLASH TODAYSplash Ministry is a monthly resource which is mailed to parents of children from ages newborn to 3 years.  This resource helps young children to grow in their faith formation and provides fun and easy ideas for bringing faith into the everyday life of infants, toddlers, and their families.  It also connects the church to families for support and encouragement.  If you have further questions about the Splash Ministry, please see Bonnie Thompson or Brenda Ceplecci.  Donations for Splash are always warmly welcomed and greatly appreciated.


GRIEF MINISTRYPart of the Social Committee is Grief Ministry. Joyce Osborn is spearheading this ministry with Pr. Perkins’ and God’s guidance and help.  When a loved one dies, Joyce sends a set of four books called “Journeying through Grief” throughout the first year. Each book describes the issues and feelings that a person tends to encounter at various points of grief and the books offer suggestions on handling them.  If Pastor Perkins or Joyce can be of any help or if you have any questions during a time of grief, please contact either of them.


A SUPPORTIVE PARENTING GROUP:  A supportive parenting group is beginning at St. Paul for young adults raising their children in faith as they grow in faith and life.  Anyone interested should contact Pastor Perkins.


HALL RENTAL:  Anyone wishing to rent Cassel Hall must first call the office to schedule the date to be sure it is not already rented or in use by the church, the Preschool, DAR, or the Red Cross.  There is also paper work which needs to be filled out prior to renting.
