Join the St. Paul's book group when we next meet on Thursday, May 17 at 4:00 pm in St. Paul's library to discuss Lincoln in the Bardo, by George Saunders.

Between now and the end of June, information about the ELCA Good Gifts program will be made available to the congregation by the Social Ministry Committee. ELCA Good Gifts is a Lutheran church-wide program which offers animals and more to help those who need a hand up but not a hand out. Our particular focus for this project is farm animals.  You are invited to make donations through the month of June. Donations can be made in the form of cash or checks made to St. Paul's, but designated for ELCA Good Gifts program. At the end of June, a selection of one or more animals will be made, depending upon the total amounts received. As an example, donations in the following amounts provide these animals:

$10 - Piglet or chicks

$15 - Rooster
