Risking Change by Tim Boyer

by Shawnee St. Paul's

So I’m telling you this, and I insist on it in the Lord: you shouldn’t live your life like the Gentiles anymore. They base their lives on pointless thinking, and they are in the dark in their reasoning. They are disconnected from God’s life because of their ignorance and their closed hearts. They are people who lack […]

The Disney Way by Tate Monroe

Our ministry team prays that January has been a compelling time of discussion and reflection for St. Paul’s regarding the call God has put on all of our lives.

This past Sunday I talked during children’s moment about the variety of fears we face. There are more fears in this world than I can possibly list. Ablutophobia is the fear of bathing. Achluophobia is when you’re afraid of the dark. Omphalophobia is the fear of belly buttons! Ick! Anthropophobia is a form of social […]

Where We Are Going by Pastor Tiffany A. Nagel Monroe

Where We Are Going This Sunday I preached a sermon called Forgo Fear. I talked about the mystery and power behind the baptism of Christ and our call to go into the world without fear. God has placed a call on each of our lives to live out our baptismal covenant. When we take on […]

So Much Good by Tate Monroe

by Shawnee St. Paul's

Upon arriving at Shawnee St.Paul’s in 2017, I found myself desiring a good way of building relationships and getting to know the people of my new faith community.

Confirmation by Tim Boyer

by Shawnee St. Paul's

So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into […]
