What's New at St. Paul's?





Dear Members and Friends of St. Paul's,


The Congregation Council met April 27, 2020, and it was decided that all church services are cancelled until further notice. This cancellation also includes all church-related activities and any groups that frequently meet at the church. We will reevaluate the current situation with COVID-19 every two weeks and follow the State and National guidelines for the health and safety of everyone.


The church secretary will still hold office hours between 10 a.m.-2 p.m. each weekday to answer the phone and do other jobs; however, the church will remain locked. Of course, you may feel free to call the office.


We will post the Sunday service with Pastor Betsy on both our Facebook and YouTube pages and links for these sites will be sent out through the church-wide email. Every Wednesday Pastor Betsy sends via email "For the Living of these Days" reflections and meditations along with church news and some humor. If you would like to be added to the church-wide email please send an email to StPaulsELCANewark@gmail.com


Please do not hesitate to contact the church office if you are in need of assistance or have any questions. You may also send an email as I am monitoring the email closely. We are all here for each other and to help each other through this.


Remember the words from Psalm 121:1-3:  "I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber..."

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.
