Upcoming Events – Church News
HEIFER INTERNATIONAL SUNDAY – The animals that Heifer is involved with provide families with draft power, financial security, manure, wool, transportation and protein from milk, eggs and meat. Heifer project partners take great pride in owning livestock and consider their well-being as a primary responsibility. All recipients of Heifer International animals contract to “pass on the gift” (give their animal’s offspring to another family in need) so the whole community is attentive to these precious and valuable creatures. We will be accepting donations through the month of December. If you are writing a check, please make it out to St. Paul UCC and write HEIFER on the memo line.
ITEMS NEEDED FOR AUGLAIZE COUNTY HUMANE SOCIETY – The large Christmas tree is all set up in Timmermeister Hall for your donations to our local Humane Society. They are a non-profit organization which run on adoptions and donations. Items that are needed the most are at the top of the list but all items are very much appreiciated. We will be accepting donations through the month of December and mid-way into January. Please place items under the tree.

NEW ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS – A new Adult Sunday School Class will be beginning on Sunday, January 6th, during the Sunday School hour (9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.) in the church library. This class, being facilitated by Mark Vaughn, will focus on open group discussions to thought provoking spiritual questions, such as “Do you believe that you have been blessed by God?” The primary focus of this class will not be to extensively study the Bible, but to focus on individual self-growth, reflection and examination of personal beliefs through the fellowship of friends and fellow Christians.
REV. BECKY ON VACATION – Pastor Becky will be on vacation starting on Wednesday, Dec. 26th though Jan. 5, 2019. During this time if you any pastoral concerns please call the church office.
