As we are finding our way into a new, hopefully temporary, normal… a couple of things to share with you:

The office/building/Preschool continue to be closed. We are checking mail and phone messages daily, and our building continues to be in the process of being deep cleaned by our caretaker, Dwight Hanauer. While we’re all encouraged to stay home, if you do happen to be out and about for a quick shopping trip or errand, please do not stop by the church unless you have to.

We continue to worship online. We will continue to gather online on Sunday mornings at 11:00 a.m. An email comes each Saturday morning with the current bulletin – if you are not receiving our emails, please click here to get onto our mailing list.

To join us on Facebook:

  1. Gather others in your household around your screen, silence other devices, perhaps light a candle, and grab your Bible.
  2. At 11:00 a.m., click here to go to our St. Paul’s Facebook Page. Depending on your device, you may need to scroll down a bit to find our active video. Please make sure you’re viewing the feed with the current Sunday in the title since we have a number of videos on our page.
  3. Type a “good morning” in the comments to let others you are there. Feel free to interact with one another!
  4. Use the “Share” button to invite other people to join you for worship.

To join us on our website:

  1. Gather others in your household around your screen, silence other devices, perhaps light a candle, and grab your Bible.
  2. At 11:00 a.m., click here to go to our St. Paul’s Webpage. Below the revolving images at the top of the page, you should see the video feed.

Please continue to give. Your offerings are needed to help continue the work of the church, even in this in-between time. You can mail your offerings in to the church office – we have a secured mailbox which is being monitored regularly. You can also give online, either as a one-time offering or to setup something reoccurring. You can just go to our website and click on Contribute to St. Paul’s on the right-hand side, and it will take you to a secure giving platform. If it’s all the same, giving by ACH debit is preferred as we incur less processing fees, but giving by a credit card is great too!

Keep connected to one another. Please continue to connect with people this week by phone, text, email, Facebook, or video, and help remember your St. Paul’s community who might be lonely or isolated in these days. A couple of people asked for a directory, which you can download here – please use this only for connecting with one another and not soliciting or giving contact info to people out of our community. If you are willing to be a “phone buddy” for someone in our church who would like another touch point, please email Pastor Ed and let him know. Our partners at ACTC are looking for help or donations if you are willing to assist in caring for the vulnerable in our midst through their work.

You have likely noticed that a lot of our connecting is through Facebook – we know this isn’t perfect, or for everyone, but is a helpful tool in a time like this. If you are not on Facebook and would like to join, please be in touch and we’ll talk you through how to do it. Our leadership is going to be learning how to gather and work via Zoom videoconferencing very soon so we are able to tend to the work of the church. This will be another tool that we will begin using for smaller group meetings, study times, and check-ins with one another.
