Groups & Guilds
Daughters of the King
DOK is an Order for women dedicated to prayer, service, and evangelism. Members are expected to actively participate in gatherings and meetings held throughout the year and to uphold the pledges one takes upon joining this group.
St. Paul’s seeks to be both a friendly church and a church of friends. In order to better help build connections between parishioners, we will be launching a new Dinner Groups ministry. Families and individuals that signup will be matched with other families and individuals within the parish to form smaller groups. These are strictly fellowship groups that will meet at least four times over the course of the program year in homes or restaurants. New groups will be formed each fall. Look for more information to come about how you can get involved.
St. Lydia’s Guild
St. Lydia is listed in Acts of the Apostles as a woman that is converted by St. Paul and assisted his ministry by giving him a place to stay and food to eat. St. Lydia’s Guild assists St. Paul’s in our ministry by helping with various administrative tasks around the church. This ministry meets every Thursday at 10:00am in the Conference Room. All are welcome to join.
The women of the parish gather together on the first Sunday of each month during the program year for various activities that incorporate food, fellowship, service, and learning. The first meeting of the program year will be held on Sunday, September 7, 2014 at 4:00pm in the Parish Hall. For details on other meetings, please see the church calendar.
St. Paul’s Crafters
St. Paul’s Crafting Group meets on the third Sundays of the month at 11:45am. Whether you have a personal craft you’d like to work on, are interested in learning a new craft, or are interested in creating one of the many Outreach craft projects, you are invited to join the St. Paul’s Crafting Group. For more information, contact Stacy Barber at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Love on the Run
We all have times of need. Love on the Run seeks to help people in those times of need. Prayer quilts are available to be taken to those who are sick and in need of being wrapped in the warmth of God’s love. Also, frozen meals are available to be taken to those who are going through a tough time and are in need of a little pick me up. All parishioners can participate by giving or receiving. Also, recipients of Love on the Run do not have to be members.
It is important that all members of our parish are reminded that they are part of the body of Christ as found here at St. Paul’s. Members of the parish who are called to this ministry visit those who are home-bound or hospitalized.
