Come have EASTER BREAKFAST with us!!!  Everyone is invited to come for Breakfast immediately following our Sunrise service on Easter Sunday.  Breakfast is planned by the Women of St. Paul, and many members of St. Paul work hard to prepare and serve it. No reservations required, come and enjoy a delicious breakfast and the Easter fellowship with family and friends. This year’s freewill offering will benefit our youth and their plans to attend their summer gathering in Minneapolis in 2019.

EASTER PRAYER VIGIL – HOLY SATURDAY, MARCH 31st  A long-standing tradition at St. Paul, Holy Saturday is observed with a 10-hour prayer vigil (6:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.) in the church sanctuary. This vigil is divided into 15-minute time periods in which to meditate and pray—you (and family members) are invited to sign up for one or more of these periods. The Prayer Vigil sign-up board is located in the west entryway.
