Groups, Guilds, & Pastoral Care
Daughters of the King
DOK is an Order for women dedicated to prayer, service, and evangelism. Members are called to actively participate in gatherings and meetings held throughout the year and to uphold the pledges one takes upon joining this order.
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.
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 tasks, such as preparing the bulletins for Sunday’s worship, preparing the Children’s bags for their use during the Sunday services. 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. For details on meetings, please see the church calendar.
For more details on how to join any of the above groups, please contact the church office.
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 of the parish.
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. One of the ways we do this is by taking Holy Communion out to people who cannot be here on a Sunday. To take advantage of this ministry or to become a part of it, please contact the church office.
