20170604 101033_001Celebration of the Rite of Confirmation

Sunday, May 20, 2018 at 10:25am

     Come and worship with us this Sunday and celebrate in welcoming our newest confirmands into full membership of the church.

     Confirmation is the rite of affirmation of baptism, where youth and young adults, who were baptized as infants or young children, stand before the congregation and affirm the vows for themselves, which someone else had made for them when they were younger.  Confirmed youth and young adults affirm Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour, express their desire to be a disciple of Jesus Christ, join the United Church of Christ, and become full voting members of the congregation.

Healing Service

Sunday, April 22, 2018 at 10:25am

   On Sunday, April 22 during the 10:25am worship service we will share in a time of Prayers of Healing. 

     For those who may have attended one of our healing services before, the following will give you an idea of what takes place.   Please note that during this service you do not need to do anything special, you are very welcome to just sit and observe.

     During the healing service portion of the worship service, for those who would like to participate in the healing service, there will be four options in how to participate in the Prayers of Healing, including: (1) opportunity to light a candle(s) for yourself or another(s); (2) the opportunity to come forward to kneel and pray nearer the altar at the chancel rail in the midst of a loving congregation; (3) the opportunity to be prayed for and annointed with oil by the pastor and elder; (4) the opportunity to simply remain in your pew; and/or (5) a combination of any of those four.  All are welcome to come and be prayed for during this rite of healing -- members and visitors alike are welcome.

     In addition, we would be happy to add you to our church's Prayer List or Prayer Chain -- members and nonmembers alike, as we seek to be a community of healing, where all may know the living presence of our loving God and where all may know that they need not journey through the challenges and tribulations of life alone.  We pray for God's healing of body, mind, spirit, and relationship; seeking healing according to God's will and wisdom for each of us.

    For more information about our periodic healing services, please contact the Worship Committee (Worship Committee Chairperson Terry Pastor  or the Pastor.

All Saints Sunday

Sunday, November 4, 2018 at 10:25am

     Join us on this day for our annual rememberance and celebration of all the saints of the church, and a special rememberance of the members of St. Paul's UCC who passed away since last year's All Saints' Sunday.

About All Saints Day

    November 1 is All Saints Day, which is celebrated annually on the first Sunday of November.
    The custom of commemorating all of the martyrs of the church on a single day goes back at least to the third century.  Our All Saints Day celebration commemorates not only all the martyrs but all the people of God, living and dead, who form the mystical body of Christ.  Today we like many congregations remember our members who have died during the past year, and we celebrate their entrance into the Church Triumphant.

    All Saints Sunday celebrates the baptized people of God, living and dead, who make up the body of Christ.  With thanksgiving we remember all the faithful departed, especially those most dear to us who have died.  Even in the midst of loss and grief God wipes away the tears from our eyes and makes all things new.
