YOUTH MISSION TRIP  We are going back to North Carolina to serve with friends made last year. Our trip is scheduled for June 11-15. Please let Alice know if your youth is interested in attending. We need to finalize our slots by the end of the month. There is a $50 deposit required at time of sign up.

TITHE=Trust Is The Heart of Everything
We know you want a vital, tangible and visible faith life here at St. Paul's and have great trust that each of you will support your church as a MISSION to the M.O.T. area.  One way to do that is the spiritual discipline of TITHING.  But tithing is a spiritual discipline which enhances the givers' life more than it enhances God's life.  Ask me, your pastor, because I tithe. Is it easy?  Not always.  Is it necessary?  Absolutely.  For my spiritual peace of mind.  To help order my life towards God. For more information on tithing and personal finances go to
