God Rocks! Thank you!

Summer Camp, God Rocks! was a wonderful experience for children, youth and adults alike!  27 children attended camp, 14 youth lead the children during camp, 8 youth and 2 adults provided fun games, 4 teams of adults hosted dinners for 75 campers, their families, and volunteers each evening. 10 members of our congregation supplied desserts for the dinners. Two folks from the sound team provided sound and words for our songs along with our guitarist. Six adults planned the curriculum from scratch and put in many hours of preparing. Yes, it takes a village to raise a child and St. Paul’s is a wonderful example!! Many many thanks to each and every one of you! 

Summer Opportunities
for Kids.
Godly Play during the 11 AM service has changed to Mystery Moments for the Summer months. During warm sunny days you will find us at the Shober Park next to our parking lot. If the weather is rainy and cold we will be in room 203 of Susanna’s Place.
Check out the bulletin boards in the Fellowship Hall for the children’s Godly Play artwork. Our Godly Play children have been creating art in response to the Godly Play stories they have heard this school year. The art work will be up throughout summer. Come see our artists’ work!
