STAYING ON PAR
WITH GOD 

Monday, October 15 at Odessa National was our final outing for 2018 and we took time over lunch to reflect on our blessings and to plan and discuss going forward for 2019. Peace and God Bless, Paul

On Saturday, August 25, the UMM held their last breakfast meeting of 2018 and what a glorious morning it was with 23 Brothers in attendance! Hot cakes, sausage, mixed fruit, zucchini bread, OJ and coffee prepared and served by the fabulous UMM kitchen crew!  Lots of good pre-breakfast discussion, old and new business discussed during the meeting and it was a wonderful spiritual gathering of fellowship. Special acknowledgement was given to our brother Mark Holden, who is moving back to Vermont, for his service and faith to St. Paul's. Nothing but blessings and the best to Mark and family! It was also great to have Pastor Bo joining us for the first time allowing him to meet with the men and in his address to us to share with each of us of our responsibilities to God and church and that it was wonderful to feel and see God's presence during this morning’s gathering. The UMM are looking forward to working with Pastor Bo as we continue our journey on the road to Discipleship. The UMM's next meeting will be in April of 2019 and more info will follow.  All men of St. Paul's are welcome to be part of the UMM so please contact me if you are interested! Thanks and God Bless to All...Paul Loder
