Come meet our church family and enjoy some time with us.
There are many ways to lend a hand, and we truly appreciate each and every effort.
SHARE YOUR VOICE AND TALENTS!
We are blessed with talented musicians and vocalists. Our choirs perform 2 cantatas each year, in addition to singing for Sunday morning worship and other services. We are always on the lookout for more talent.
Children and groups from the Sunday school classes often provide special music for Sunday worship services and special events.
HAND BELL CHOIR
St. Paul Hand Bell Choir and ensemble groups provide music during worship on the 4th Sunday of most months and presents a December Christmas concert. It is also a major participant of the annual ‘Sounds of Starkenburg’ concert, ringing in the Christmas season at the Shrine Museum at Starkenburg the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Formed in February, 2005 with just 13 ringers and a three octave set of Schulmerich Hand bells, we have expanded largely since then in ringers as well as instruments. Join us!
OUR YOUNGER CHURCH FAMILY
Our youth assist with worship music, reading scriptures, greeting and ushering.
GREETERS AND USHERS
Please let us know if you're visiting. We have gift bags with information about St. Paul UCC, pens and notepads for you. If you need a mask or hand sanitizer, we've got you covered.
Our purpose is to unite in Christian fellowship, to deepen spiritual life and to promote service to the church, community and world. They serve funeral luncheons and meals for other church functions. An annual rummage sale helps fund the St. Paul current fund, the food pantry, back pack program, Community Christmas and the wider mission of the church. Monthly meetings feature interesting guests. For more information, please call the church office.
(The two members pictured above help with Samaritan Outreach.)
The men meet for coffee and fellowship on designated Saturday mornings. They plan a 5th Quarter event for youth (pictured) after home games.
A 3 in 1 program allows young couples some free time while the men and their significant others babysit the children – a great time. After children are picked up, the sitters go out to dinner and have some fun. For information on the 3 in 1 program, contact Bob Kirchhofer at 573.486.2943
or the church office.
They also do some handyman projects for folks who may need some winterization, a ramp or minor home repair. If you have needs or know someone who does, please contact the church office so they can help.
AFTER SCHOOL BEARCATS
The children enjoy a refreshing snack, music, art and craft lessons. Each child has one on one time with a mentor, who helps with homework or special needs. More information can be found under Mission.
HELP WITH SUNDAY SCHOOL
We welcome new helping hands and voices with our youth. The first Sunday of the month all classes meet together for worship and special activities the first half of the hour.
THE NIMBLE THIMBLES
This community quilting and service group meets at St. Paul monthly to share quilting experience, inspiration and give workshops. They donate quilts to Linus Quilts for children in hospitals, Quilts of Valor, local disasters, nursing homes (lap quilts and pillowcases), and are working on a project to provide quilts to local kids in need this Christmas. There are many talented and generous quilters, including some St. Paul members. They welcome all who are interested.
Several scout groups meet weekly at St. Paul and hold special events here. We are pleased to avail space for their activities.
