This group meets at 9:30 a.m. Wednesdays in the library to view and discuss the highly acclaimed film series, The Chosen," now in its third season. All are welcome.
This is a series of videos, readings and small-group discussions about race. This is highly recommended if you have questions about "critical race theory," a topic needlessly politicized. To watch an introduction, click here.
Interested in pursuing Sacred Ground further? As in participating in a small-group study? Contact Nora Broszeit or Tom Connolly.
"The Bookman" retired last year, but volunteers at St. Paul's picked up the ball and we are once again selling used books at the Farmers' Market. They're inside our parish hall, so weather won't interfere.
We welcome donations; proceeds of the book store go to worthy causes. Drive up to the office Monday to Friday and someone will unload your books
The market will reopen in November
Welcome to the easy in-and-out St. Paul's Farmer's Market! Stop by the hospitality pit, have a hotdog and introduce yourself to new friend! The market is open November through April, Saturdays from 8 a.m.to noon. Lots of fresh produce and select items of interest for sale.
If you are a prospective vendor, please call the office, as we have room for more vendors.

Almighty God, who created us in your own image: Grant us grace fearlessly to contend against evil and to make no peace with oppression; and, that we may reverently use our freedom, help us to employ it in the maintenance of justice in our communities and among the nations, to the glory of your holy Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
—Book of Common Prayer
Dr. Susan Wilson, an English family physician, is full of energy and zealfor the Lord. She founded Tumaini (the word means "hope") Fund to put her faith to work in the AIDS-ravaged Kagera region of Northwest Tanzania. There she established an orphanage for thousands of children who lost their moms and dads to AIDS. In addition to monitary contributions, the women of our church have sewn numerous dresses, as seen here with Dr. Wilson.
Parishioners Mike Moore and Roger Conant are directors for the fund in the United States.
