CONFIRMATION CLASS meets

WE ARE IN THE MIDST OF ADVENT. Be sure to take an Advent Wreath & Devotion Kit with weekly devotions found at the bottom of the stairs if you do not already have one. There are weekly items to place in your manger. The 1st week of Advent the item was a bow. Last week, the 2nd week of Advent the item was a bell. Check out this week’s tin and look for a little surprise to place in your manger. Listen to Pastor Karin and Young Disciple leaders on Sunday to make the connections for the 3rd Sunday of Advent, this week.

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 http://www.gbod.org/stewardship/
