On Saturday, May 4th St. Paul's UMM held their first breakfast meeting of 2019 with 15 in attendance. A great breakfast of hot cakes, sausage, fruit, OJ, and coffee was served by our UMM Chefs! Several missions planned in 2019 were discussed as well as missions completed to date. Eric Trizinski (AD at Silver Lake Elementary), along with his son E.J. were in attendance and plans were made for the upcoming May Day at Silver Lake School. St. Paul's UMM will once again supply water for that event and Eric is looking into the possibility of UMM handing out the water. All in all the breakfast meeting was a wonderful morning of faith, fellowship, and food! The next breakfast meeting is scheduled for Saturday, August 24th. Stay tuned for further details. Thanks to All who showed up at 6:30 AM to make it happen! Stay safe and God Bless! Paul

Embodied Spirituality

Pastor Bo came to speak on the topic of Embodied Spirituality. Christ’s Ministry was always to provide holistic health treating the whole person physically, emotionally and spiritually. In essence care for the body, mind and spirit. In the programs Health Ministry has provided to date physical and emotional health have been the dimensions we have addressed. So we recognized that Spiritual dimension being central to achieving holistic care.
