  • 2x4 (20s-40s) Ministry

    St. Paul's friends in the 20s-to-40s age range gather for monthly meals, service, and fellowship. Second Sunday Lunch meets on site at the church, in homes, and at local restaurants. Third Thursday Book Club convenes to discuss faith through the lens of fiction and nonfiction. All are welcome!

  • Adult formation

    The Adult Sunday School Class meets on Sunday mornings from 9:45-10:30 a.m. in the Parlor. Newcomers are welcome any time.


    Additionally, the Adult Education Committee sponsors two six week Supper and Study sessions for adults, one in the fall and one in the spring; three or four classes are offered each session on a range of thought-provoking topics.

     

    Lectionary Bible Study meets every Tuesday (September-June) to discuss the Scripture focus for the coming Sunday's worship. Drop in for a class any time. The hour-long study begins at 10:45 a.m. in the Church Library. 

  • food with friends

    The Food With Friends monthly dinner series is a fellowship opportunity to visit participants’ homes, meet new people and dine with friends in an informal setting. New sign-ups are welcome any time and the large-group dinners are open to all. Large group dinners are held in May (to kickoff the new season), in December for Advent Celebration, and in May (when data is gathered for the fall rotation).  For all other months, groups gather for dinner at the home of a group participant (host). The host provides the main course while all who attend provide parts of the meal (ie. appetizers, salad, side dishes, beverage, breads, dessert). – all coordinated by the host. Typical group sizes vary from 6 to 12 based on the host’s capacity and desire.


       

  • older adult ministry

    By long tradition, the Friendship Club meets in St. Paul's Heavener Hall. They kickoff their meetings at 11:30 a.m. on the second Tuesday of the month (October-May). This is an ecumenical community of seniors representing over a dozen local congregations. Bring your favorite dish for their always delicious potluck meal, and stay to enjoy entertainment from local singers, musicians, and actors. 


    Tuesdays Together, held on the third Tuesday of the month (September-June), is open to friends of all ages. The group begins in the Sanctuary at noon for brief worship with Communion before transitioning to the Octagon room for lively  fellowship and lunch. 

  • United methodist men

    The United Methodist Men (UMM) of St. Paul's serve the church and community through a wide range of activities. Their fund-raising efforts continue to benefit a host of local and international ministries. Among the many organizations they support are Boy Scout Troop #439 and Venture Crew.


    The UMM conducts regular meetings and relies upon volunteers to staff their popular events: Pancake Breakfasts (September-June), the Fall Apple Sale, Christmas Tree Sale, and Bi-annual Yard Sales. Contact the church office to receive a copy of their most recent meeting minutes.

    Lydia Circle meets the first Wednesday evening of the month (September-May), in the church's Octagon room.

    Jochebed Circle meets with a different time and location each month, sometimes in the homes of members.

  • yarn ministry

    Drop-in the Church Library on the second and fourth Mondays of the month to join fellow busy fingers and prayerful hearts at work knitting and crocheting.
