Snow Days

New Cancellation Policy

St. Paul’s has a new activity cancellation policy.  In the past activities were cancelled based upon the closing of Maumee City Schools.  Recently it has been that the schools close because the weather in the morning is bad, but by the time of our activities things have improved.  As a result we have adopted this new policy:  If the snow emergency is either at a level 2 or level 3 all church activities are cancelled.  If the snow emergency is at a Level 1 and the activity leader feels it is best to cancel they can do so and make sure that all participants are notified.

As always if you do not feel comfortable being out in the weather, please stay home.


Kids Against Hunger

Food Build

Come join us for St. Paul’s next food build.  It is Saturday, February 14th from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm.  We are looking for 50 volunteers!  If you are interested please sign up in the Gathering Space.

Snacks will be provided.

 

Twelve Days of Christmas

Twelve Days of Christmas

Sing with me…. “On the first day of Christ-mas, Jason sang to me; and it soun-ded so lov-e-lee.”

“Ahhh? Hey, wait! That’s not how that song goes. And besides, his voice certainly ain’t lovely!” I can always hope. Maybe someday, right? I just thought I’d try to make you laugh.

Seriously, many people adore “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” It’s a fun sing, even if you sound as “good” as me.

Here’s some fun trivia. Do you know oral tradition says the song was written to help Christians learn about their faith during times of persecution? Continue reading

Amid Murphy—Love’s Excelling

Amid Murphy—Love’s Excelling

What did Murphy say? If it can happen, it will? It’s something like that, I think. Murphy struck again this week—this time in a BIG way.

Sunday began like any other. We had three wonderful services with great music, praise and worship; a message for the masses; times of fellowship and laughter; the anointing of our new youth director; and then…for me, vacation. Yes—a break from the grind.

The time had finally arrived for a bit of R-N-R, a chance to relax before the Christmas hustle-and-bustle. And, I had plans. Yes. I had plans for doing nothing.

Sleeping-in—it was most definitely at the top of the list. I’d even thought about losing myself mindlessly in a SyFy® marathon, maybe some Battlestar Galactica and other blow-em in outer space type shows.

Yup, I had plans. But, so did Murphy. Continue reading

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!
