St. Paul Lutheran Church Angel Dedication

 

We have a new piece of art hanging on our sanctuary wall. The Angel is a gift from Margie Laurie, a friend of St. Paul’s. This angel is made from a cast of the original statue that was part of a statuary group hanging in the vestry of the 18th century church, Santa Croce, in Florence, Italy. This piece joins the St. Paul collection of beautiful liturgical art that enhances our narthex and worship space.


14th Annual Christmas Store

It was another successful year with bringing smiles and happiness to 28 residents who went shopping “for free” on Monday, December 2, 2019 at the Good Samaritan Nursing Home in Simla, CO.

This was all made possible by the wonderful members and friends of St. Paul Lutheran Church here in Calhan with their generous donations and by the financial assistance through Thrivent’s Action Team !  The nursing home residents were ready to shop when the doors opened to the dining room at 3 p.m. and everyone was exhausted from shopping around 4:30 p.m. J   Two “shopping elves” from St. Paul worked with each of the residents to find personal items they could use or for gifts that they might then give to their own family members.  The residents then went to our gift wrapping table before heading back to their room, all ready for the Christmas celebration!!
