RAINBOW PRESCHOOL ART SHOW:  St. Paul’s congregation has an opportunity to do an early spring fundraiser by raffling several baskets/prizes at the Rainbow Preschool Art Show in March.  We are asking for donations from our members to help us to fill these baskets.  There will be sheets in the narthex with lists of specific items or suggestions of items to contribute.  The baskets will include:  a wine basket, a gardening basket, a “Dad’s” basket (car wash items, etc.), children’s outdoor fun basket, and a family basket (games, popcorn, videos, etc.).  If you are able to donate items to help with this fundraiser, please drop them off at the church and place them under the table (where the lists are) in the narthex.  Cash donations are also welcome.  Items need to be at the church by February 26.  Please see Brenda Ceplecci if you have any questions.  Thank you!

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

SPLASH TODAYDonations are always warmly welcomed, and with your continued support, we will be able to sustain this valuable ministry to young families.

GRIEF MINISTRYPart of the Social Committee is Grief Ministry. Joyce Osborn (330-372-2136) 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.

DUE TO GOVERNMENT REGULATIONSIn the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), churches and clergy can no longer make written or oral public announcements of health information regarding our members.  Thus, unless specifically requested by a member to share other information, we are only able to indicate where a person is hospitalized or that they have been discharged.
