City Street Lights
For several years, even during the height of the pandemic, St. Paul’s has gone to mainstreet and tied scarves with messages of Christ’s love around lamp posts. This is a visible way of reminding all of our community that they are not alone, there is someone who cares, and Jesus offers us warmth and comfort. We will scarf mainstreet on Wednesday, December 8th at 6:30pm. All are welcome to join us. We will conclude with cocoa and carols.

Blue Christmas Worship
Blue Christmas is a worship service held prior to Christmas Eve. The purpose of this worship service is to give us an opportunity to release the weight of the world that is upon our shoulders, acknowledge the things that make the holiday difficult, and embrace hope. It’s an opportunity to give to God all that is heavy on our hearts and open ourselves up to the joy that can be found even in the bleakest midwinters. Monday, 12/20 at 6:30pm.
