Calling All Angels

It’s Angel Tree Time

If you would like to be an angel to a child this Christmas come to the Gathering Space and take a gift tag from one of the Angel Trees.  Each gift tag has a wish list made by a child.  These gifts are then given to the children when their parents pick up their Christmas Holiday Food Baskets.  The angel trees will be up starting November 23rd.

All gifts with their tags attached need to be returned by Sunday December 14th.  If your office or department at work would like to “adopt” a family, be sure to contact Sue Schad at 419-893-2330 to set that up.

Soaked in the Spirit

Soaked in the Spirit

To my  brothers and sisters, all who are loved by God and called to be his holy people: Grace and peace to you in the Spirit of Jesus Christ.

Over the last two months, I’ve shared a portion of the dream God revealed. This month, I want to continue into its heart and share what that means for you and me.

Scene two began like this. I was standing outside in a parking lot during a great downpour. Many others were there too. Remarkably, no one ran from the rain. It was a healing rain, and it soaked everyone to the bone. Continue reading

Be All In!

Guest Musician Sunday


Jeremy Kunkle “in the house”

This Sunday, we have the privilege of being led in worship by a guest musician at the 9:30 contemporary service by one of Toledo’s own: Jeremy Kunkle. Jeremy was a founding member of “This Beautiful Republic” and now currently plays on the praise team at Vineyard Church in Perrysburg.

We hope to see you this Labor Day Sunday at 9:30 AM in worship and praise to our Lord God.

Iron Dome of Love and Prayer

Iron Dome of Love and Prayer

I hope this note finds you well, living in the grace and peace of Jesus Christ.

Recently, over the last few weeks, St. Paul’s has come under intense, spiritual attack. Over the last 48 hours, in my gut, I’ve felt the need to share what we’re encountering.

Like the recent war in Israel, our enemy the devil, has been sending a constant barrage of spiritual rockets our way. He’s much like Hamas: a terrorist who attacks from homes, hospitals, and from behind human shields. Over the recent weeks, he’s been attacking us in much this way. His attacks are causing many to become weary—maybe even you. Continue reading

Adventurous Courage

Adventurous Courage

The Apostle Paul began his letter to the Ephesians with this: “May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace” (Eph 1:2). To you, I offer the same.

Last month, I wrote about the Healing Rain I believe is coming soon. In that, I shared briefly about a dream given me, one God instructed me to record. Over the next few months, I’ll be sharing that dream and its meaning. Continue reading
