What's New at St. Paul's?






St. Paul’s will sponsor a rummage and bake sale on Friday, April 22 from 9:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M. and Saturday, April 23 from 9:00 A.M. to Noon. We will have a sign-up sheet in the narthex or you may phone the church during office hours (between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. weekdays) to donate your time for a 3 hour block of sale time or for setting up or boxing left-overs. For the first time we also hope to have an ‘Antique and Collectibles’ room for Items of greater value. These items would be valued and priced individually. The committee has voted that the proceeds from this event would be divided between the Funeral Luncheon Fund and the Lobby Renovation Fund. Please consider volunteering for this event which helps congregation members find new homes for items they no longer need as well as benefiting the community. Items may be dropped off at the church during office hours starting on Monday, April 18th. (No TV’s or monitors that are not flat screen, computers, printers, cellphones, or soiled items will be accepted.) If it is not possible to drop items off, you may phone Diane Ganz (740-344-9141) to make other arrangements



CHILDREN'S CHOIR RESUMING: If you have a child, grandchild, young neighbor or friend who is interested in singing, we will be restarting our children's choir in March. Please contact Juli Rauch for more information or call the church office.


Changes to St. Paul's Covid Policy


MASKS AWAY! Due to a drop in infection rates, and in line with the newest CDC guidelines, masks will no longer be required in worship or church group activities. We ask that masks continue to be worn by those who are unvaccinated, and encourage it for those who are immune compromised, or otherwise at increased risk of infection. Let’s hope infection rates remain low so we can remain unmasked! We will continue to follow CDC guidance.

ALSO:  We will return to communion at the altar rail on Easter Sunday!


GRIEF GROUP – The newly formed Grief support group met for the first time on November 10th. Their second meeting will be on the 2nd Wednesday of December at 1:30 in Danford Hall. If you would like more information, please contact Thelma Trainor or Jean Hovland.

Four Church Farm-Our Own Outdoor Campground

Do you need a place for a family reunion, overnight camping,

weekend camping or just a family picnic?

Then The Four Church Farm is the place for you!
This is a beautiful hilltop area on Flint Ridge which was donated to St. Paul’s, St. John’s, Trinity and Christ Lutheran Churches by the late judge, Virginia Weiss. We at St. Paul’s help maintain this area during the year with mowing, cleanup and overall maintenance. Shelter House, picnic area, restroom facilities, water and sporting equipment is available with your reservation. Last year, the farm was only used 40 times with a lot of open dates. This facility is more than the October Ox Roast and needs to be used. No cost involved.
For reservations, check the calendar on Christ Lutheran Church web page. Click on Four Church Farm for the calendar, then call the church secretary at Christ Lutheran, 740-522-4505, for your reservation.
