Special 9:00 hour offering on January 6, 2019

To celebrate the end of the Christmas season, we will gather at 9:00 am for a brief presentation about the history of the nativity scene, or creche. Jeff will bring his collection of Nativity Sets and you are invited to bring yours!  We'll spend the time in fellowship and looking at Nativity Sets from around the world. If you have one to display, please arrive by 8:45 am so you can set it up with a note card explaining its origin (e.g. "From Ghana" or "This was my grandmother's")  Let's see how many sets we can gather in the Great Hall!  The display will stay up for coffee hour after the 10:00 service.

Holiday Card Display: December 16 through the Epiphany  

If you would like to send a holiday card to your entire St. Paul's Family, please bring one card to put on our festive display posted outside the parish office.  This way everyone at St. Paul's can feel like they received your holiday cheer and well wishes.
