Will you help share the love of Jesus during the Christmas season? The Evangelism Board along with Family Life are looking for a few volunteers for the Miracle of Jesus event December 8th. We would like to have 2 to 3 people per station, and we are looking for people to man three of the stations. We are also looking for a man and a woman to portray the parts in the skit that’s involved in this event. If you’re interested in the skit parts check with Thomas Wilson of Family Life. If you’re interested in volunteering please sign up on the sign-up sheet on the bulletin board in the narthex.  

Our 3rd annual trivia night is coming soon (January 11th). It’s time to form your teams and pick a team captain. Starting TODAY, team captains can sign up at the table in the back, where they will receive their instructions and share the important details with their teams. If you would like to play, but don’t have a team, you can put your name on the waiting list. Keep watching for more details. Proceeds benefit the National Youth Gathering in 2022.

On December 5, at 3:00 pm, the Missional Community that meets at Northridge Village is hosting a Christmas Carol Singalong for all the residents of Northridge Village. We will share singing, fellowship, and Christmas treats. We will hold this in the main dining room of the west building of Northridge Village off of George Washington Carver. We would love to have many St. Paul members join us for the singing and fellowship. The event will last about an hour. Please come and enjoy the spirit of Christmas.
