GROUP STUDY-CONFIRMATION FOR ADULTS – Have you ever wondered what our St. Paul UCC confirmands are learning these days? Would you like a refresher on our core beliefs as a Christian people? Now is your chance! Every Thursday at 6:30pm in the Ritter Room, Pastor Becky will be leading a group study for adults using the same curriculum that our own Confirmation classes have used the last several years. Participants will enjoy thought-provoking videos, engage with scripture, and share in lively conversation as we explore the basic questions of the Christian faith. All are welcome!
SERVANTS DAY – Organized by the Ministerial Association, Servants Day (September 15) is an opportunity for volunteers to help repair the homes of those in need in the Wapakoneta area. Typical jobs include painting, cleaning, plumbing, carpentry, and yardwork. The deadline for VOLUNTEERS to sign up is Friday, August 31. We need folks to sign up early so that we can assemble the best teams to tackle the various projects! Please note that this is a community-wide project and you will be working with folks from other churches and organizations—what a great opportunity to share God’s love with others! You may find our congregation’s sign-up sheet in the breezeway; please contact Linda Bryan (419-296-3744; email@example.com) if you have any questions.
