This Sunday @ St Paul (August 20, 2017)

This Sunday – August 20, 2017

Worship.  Choose a service of your choice and join us for worship as we are reminded of the steadfast love and faithfulness of God who hovers, pursues, and redeems us.  If you are not able to join us in person, join our online worshiping community.


Promotion Sunday Lunch.  We will meet for lunch immediately following the 10:55 am worship service on Sunday, August 20, in the Fellowship Hall as we celebrate a new year in Christian Education.

Please bring your favorite side dish (salad, casserole, or dessert, enough to serve at least 8) to go with fried chicken and beverages provided by the church. We look forward to seeing you all there!


Acolyte Training.  Children in grades 3, 4 and 5 may participate in our Acolyte program.  Once training is completed, children serve as Acolytes by bringing the fire to the altar, receiving offerings, helping with baptisms, and serving Holy Communion.


Youth — 3rd Night  Join us for 3rd NIGHT this Sunday.  We will meet at the church for snack supper ($1) from 5:30p-6:00p and then drive to Brookstone School for games, worship, and an awesome message with other youth groups from the Columbus community.  It’s going to be great.  We will be back around 8:00p.

Young Hearts

We are on a mission to build relationships between the “Hearts of our Young” and the “Young Hearts” of St. Paul (ages 6-12 and over 65).

By joining this group you are committing yourself to becoming a friend through writing, sharing your day-to-day lives with a friend from a different generation.  Registration begins on August 20, 2017.
