Come dressed in your costumes, decorate your trunks, and invite a friend! Donations of candy and mini pumpkins will be gladly accepted. Look for a box in the gathering space. Contact Jessie Blazsik for more information.
Youth Director Search
We’re nearing the finish line
The Youth Director search is coming into the home stretch. We have two wonderful candidates remaining, both of whom we’ll be interviewing within weeks. One will be here during the last week of October, and the other the first week of November.
Both young men have much to offer. They are well spoken and knowledgeable; liked by the search team (especially our teens); and have impressed. More important, they are relatable to our youth, having a good grasp of the needs of teens today and the daily challenges they face.
We have no doubt their either will bring added value to St. Paul’s—growing our youth with a faith that sticks. We hope to make an offer to the one the search team recommends by mid-November.
Kids Against Hunger
Food Build November 8, 2014
St. Paul’s is gearing up for another food build. If you would like to help there is a sign up sheet in the gathering space.
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
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.

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
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
