Assortment of greeting cards

A Greeting Card Station has been created!

The greeting cards are located in the Narthex on the table, for your convenience. They are free to members and visitors to use as needed.

You might have forgotten your greeting card, or left it at home, and it’s someone’s birthday! Or grab one to send a get-well wish.

Feel free to add cards, if you like.

Sunday School Opportunities

The Sunday School Christmas Program will be held on Sunday, December 15, immediately following the worship service. Please stay to support our youth. Rehearsal for this program will occur on Saturday, December 14, at 1:30 p.m.

Shadow of the Cross offers children two Sunday School sessions to meet their family’s Sunday morning schedule.

The first opportunity occurs during the 9:45 a.m. worship service. Children are dismissed following Confession and Absolution.

The second opportunity starts at 11 a.m., during the adult Bible class that follows the worship service, in the Sunday School rooms. Children are taught Bible stories and Bible songs, and Veggie Tales are used to assist in storytelling. Crafts and playtime are also offered.

Bible Giveaway – Take Part in this Outreach!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

First, donations are needed to purchase more children’s and Arabic Bibles.

Second, you can assist in setting out Bibles for people to take at various events here at Shadow of the Cross.

Third, you can take these Bibles and give them to people you know who may need them, in your own personal outreach efforts.

Fourth, if you see a new visitor at one of our worship services, offer them a Bible (they are located on the shelf in the back of the sanctuary).

Finally, you can pray for the people who receive the Bibles.

These Bibles have labels inside that provide information about our services and will be relabeled with our new name and new website address, when available.

So become an active part of this ministry.

 

Join in to Support Motor City Meals Feed the Homeless

MOTOR CITY MEALS is an organization that goes out to feed the homeless. Our own Cheryl Johnson makes up meals for them to distribute. They feed about 60 people a week. If you would like to help, they could use the following items:


* Cases of bottled water
* Snacks (granola bars, fruit bars, cookies, crackers, etc.)
* Meat for Cheryl to cook
* Socks
* Men’s and women’s underwear
* Sample-size hygiene items
* Feminine hygiene products

Cash is always accepted, and tax donation forms are available. You can place your donations in the plastic bin near the bottle collection can (however, please place any meat donations in the refrigerator and label the package “MCM”). If you have any  questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Cheryl – she’d be happy to talk to you about this special ministry.

New Online Giving Site is Up!

St. Pauls just released a new online giving system today! Off to the right of the church website, you’ll notice you can click “Give Now.” That link will let you submit your offering via Credit Card / Debit Card or setup re-occurring transfers from a bank account. We’re trying to draw attention to some outstanding expenses the church has and hope that this will assist with those.

We also hope this brings convenience to our parishioners and would ask that you check it out today!
