Things that are happening at St. Paul this summer

On June 18th there will be a church cleanup day beginning at 9:00 a.m.  There will be food afterward so there is incentive to come and work.  Activities that we will be attempting to complete:

  • Trim trees and bushes around the church
  • Paint and clean the playground with some repairs
  • Clean out crawl space and rodent removal and fill holes if needed
  • Clean and organize utility closet and storage shed (we will have a dumpster on site to throw out anything not wanted)
  • Possibly staining the church outside (George and Matthew are heading this up)

On Sunday, July 17th Bishop Gonia will be here to celebrate our ministry together.  There will be a potluck after service for everyone.

Sometime over the summer, the parking lot will be repaired.  We will have it sealed and repaired.  The sealing is not covered by warranty and will cost $6,000.00.  This should guarantee the parking lot will stay relatively nice for the next 10 years with minimum problems.

Kidspree will be at the church again this year, which will be the first part of August.  This is put on by the Calhan Lions Club with Lion Ginger Flynn spearheading this event.

To finish off the summer, the beer and brats will once again be in full swing on the last weekend in September.  There is more information to come on the exact date and times.

There is plenty of opportunities for everyone to jump in and help with anything they feel a calling to do with repairs to the church.

As always, we can use more lectors and assistant ministers.  If you feel a calling to do this, please sign up on the Sunday that you would like.

Together we do Christ’s work with our hands.


Servant Opportunities…

Share your talents in a variety of ways in which you can be of service.  Maybe you have a talent in reading, or in offering prayers, in singing, in ushering, or in setting up for communion. Maybe it’s a new way to help that we haven’t thought of. If you would love to help and to serve in any way during this most unusual time, just let Karen or Pastor know and signup.


FELLOWSHIP following services

Come and join us for some great refreshments and that special time to visit with one another. The 4th Sunday is always Potluck, so bring your favorite dish on that Sunday.
