Fellowship
"And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and prayers."(Acts 2:42)

At St. Paul's, we seek to meet the needs of all parishioners for Christian fellowship. We encourage our members to participate in our community of faith to better achieve a sense of belonging, to grow together in Christ, and to serve each other and our community.

  • ECW - Episcopal Church Women

    The St. Paul's ECW is committed to service and fellowship both within St. Paul's and through reaching out into the community.

    In addition to coordinating the annual United Thank Offering and organizing an Annual Rummage Sale, the ECW also provides hospitality at a variety of parish functions.

    If you are a woman, you are already a member of the ECW!

  • Peanut Brittle Making

    Every autumn parisoners and friends gather on Monday nights to enjoy each other's company while making the best peanut brittle in the area. The brittle is sold to raise money for various outreach opportunities, parish functions, and building improvements.

    The funds raised by peanut brittle sales are always tithed to some organization determined by those who participate. What is to be purchased with the remainder of the money is brainstormed by participants, and suggestions are made to the vestry for their approval.

    Over the years peanut brittle funds have purchased the tables and chairs in the undercroft, acolyte robes and cinctures, altar linens, the commercial gas stove in the undercroft kitchen, the current refrigerator and freezer in the undercroft kitchen, a color printer, a digital camera, cups for congregational candles, torches and stands for altar, a new advent wreath and oil candles as well as money for remodeling one of the undercroft restrooms, and money for the anniversary celebrations.

    Volunteers are needed to provide ingredients, cook, package, and sell. 3/4 pound bags are sold for $5 apiece, and are available at the back of the church. The peanut brittle makes great gifts, and sells fast at schools, work, and social functions.

    Brittle making begins in September and continues through Advent.

  • The Breakfast Club

    A group of hungry folks head over to a local restaurant after the 8:00 am Sunday Eucharist. The group collects money each week after breakfast and uses it to buy school supplies and Christmas gifts for children from at-risk families. The ladies especially enjoy shopping for the children and usually have some money left over for a family gift. Newcomers are always welcome. Just check with the rector after the 8:00 am service to find out where the group is eating.

    Members of this group also meet monthly for a Bible study in someone's home to share faith, fellowship, and prayer. During Lent the group holds a weekly Bible study.

  • Supper Club

    The St. Paul's Supper Club provides members of the parish with a chance to deepen relationships with each other. Each fall, interested parishioners are divided into small groups that meet once a month or so for dinner. Dinners can be pot luck and rotate among the homes of group members or everyone call get together at a local restaurant. New groups form every fall and newcomers are welcome to join a group at any time.
