Hello St. Paul's Families!

We're so happy to share the good news that Mother Alice and her family welcomed Calvin James Graham into the world on January 16, 2023. We all look forward to getting to know him. Congratulations and Best Wishes to the family.

We are busy with many events on Children's Ministry schedule - Communion classes, Lent and planning for VBS are just a few highlights. Please keep in mind that we have changed to a monthly format for this Children's Ministry Update, so keep this email for reference. You will not get a reminder like this every week.

Have a blessed month,

Regan, and the Children's Ministry Committee

Communion Class Info & Registration

Our children's communion class is designed to deepen a child's understanding of the Holy Eucharist. The class, taught by clergy, is designed for 1st through 3rd graders. The completion of this class is not a prerequisite for receiving communion. Children are encouraged to bring their questions as they experience God's invitation into the sacrament. 

Communion classes will meet three Sundays in February from 10:15am to 11am, on the following dates:

Sunday, February 5, 10:15 - 11am
Sunday, February 12, 10:15 - 11am
Sunday, February 19, 10:15 -11am

February 5th, please meet in the church in the southern corner nearest the youth wing door.

The students in this class will be honored on Sunday, February 26th after the 9am service with a special Coffee Hour Hosted By the Children's Ministry Committee.
