  • Way Forward Prayer Community

    During Lent, a small group has engaged in fasting and prayer in connection with the United Methodist Church's Way Forward Commission (http://umcprays.org) which is currently focused on the "consideration of the present impasse related to human sexuality and the consequent questions about unity..." We will meet on Friday, March 31 at 7:00pm in the Octagon for a potluck evening meal together to mark breaking our fast. A Prayer Guide is available by clicking here for those who wish to participate in a time of independent Friday fasting and discernment.

  • Community Pancake Breakfast

    The next monthly Community Pancake Breakfast, sponsored by the United Methodist Men, will be Saturday, April 1, 8:00-10:30am in Heavener Hall. In addition to regular pancakes and the usual assortment of sausage, ham, bacon, scrambled eggs, fruit, grits, and beverages, this month's specialty pancake is M&Ms. The proceeds from this breakfast benefit ministries locally and globally.

  • Friendship Club

    On the second Tuesday of each month, at 11:30 AM, the Friendship Club begins in Heavener Hall with a short business meeting followed by a potluck lunch at 12:00 and entertainment at 1:00 PM. Snow and ice interfered with our plans last month, so don't miss April! On April 11, our entertainment is the fabulous Dixie Land Band. The Friendship Club was organized in 1974 and continues today as an ecumenical community organization to nurture senior citizens through fellowship, food, and friendship. 

  • 2x4s (20-40S ministries) Third Thursday Book CLub

    The THIRD THURSDAY BOOK CLUB will meet April 20 at 7:30pm at the Matheny-Noyce home in Silver Spring to discuss Found: A Story of Questions, Grace, and Everyday Prayer by Micha Boyett. Her story of growing spiritually through the use of St. Benedict's structure for praying is also a story of what faith can look like amidst the messy everyday life of a new mother with big questions, frustrations, and hopes. Get reading, invite a friend, and come for a great discussion. Contact Rev. Claire Matheny (cmatheny@stpaulsk.org) for directions and more information.
