The holy season of Lent begins Wednesday, February 18 on Ash Wednesday. We mark this occasion with our service of the Imposition of Ashes and Holy Communion at 7:30 p.m. Weekly Lenten Services begin Sunday, Feb. 22 at 7 p.m. and continue every Sunday through the Sunday of the Passion. Please let it be your intention to attend all the services of this Lenten season.
With thankfulness for the response of so many congregations from around the country in our time of great loss after our church building burned, a motion was made and passed by St. Paul Church Council to establish a fund, Faith Foundation, that assists congregations in rebuilding after a disaster.
The money will be distributed each year to a congregation in need. A quarterly offering will be taken for this fund. The first offering was held March 30, 2014 and funds were designated for Trinity AME in Silverstreet after the church’s roof collapsed during a 2014 snow storm.
Holy Week services will be Maundy Thursday at 7:30 p.m. with Holy Communion and Good Friday at 7:30 p.m. with the service of Tenebrae. Join us for the observance of the Passion of our Lord.
We will be celebrating the Resurrection of our Lord on Easter Sunday, April 20. There will be one worship service this year and we plan to hold it at 9 a.m. on the front lawn of the church. We ask that everyone please bring their own lawn chairs for the service. A light breakfast will be served beforehand. In the event of rain, the service would be held at Pomaria School.
