One of the best things about being Lutheran is the food! The cheesy potatoes, the salads and hot dishes, the coffee and punch and desserts. Jesus often gathered with others over a meal, and fellowship at St. Paul is no different. All are invited, including your friends, family, and neighbors!
Important term to know: Potluck–a meal where everyone brings a dish to share. If you don’t have time to cook, just pick something up at the store. And if you are in a pinch, come anyway! There is always enough somehow.
Wednesday Dinners— All are invited for a free meal on Wednesdays in the fellowship hall at 6:00pm beginning the Wednesday after Labor Day and ending in mid-May. It is a great opportunity to gather mid-week to meet new people and catch up with friends. Take a night off from cooking and share a meal with the family.
Prayer Shawl and Scarf Ministry–On the 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month at 7pm on the third floor of the church, all are invited to gather to knit and crochet scarves for Sharing Center clients. Beginning in January, the group will also make prayer shawls. Gather for fellowship and sharing, and a time at the end for prayer for one another and the community. Donations of yarn are also needed, as each scarf uses 2 skeins and prayer shawls 4-6 skeins. No experience is needed!
Adult Fellowship Group–The Adult Fellowship group was originally created in the 40’s as the young adult group of St. Paul, and while it has changed members and activities over the years, still meets faithfully once a month on a Saturday evening. There are snacks and a planned activity for each month, which is coordinated by Bill Osborn. For more information and to receive the monthly announcements, please contact the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org
