Given the severity of the pandemic in our area, Council made changes to worship, office hours, and church activities to help protect the health of St. Paul people and our neighbors.
Worship will be online only through and including Sunday, January 17.
The office will be open Mondays 8a to 1p and by appointment only on other days.
With recent positive news about a vaccine, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Let your eager anticipation of returning to joyful, song-filled in person worship--and all other new normal activities--be known in the way you draw close to one another in prayer and love and service to others. Christ, our true light, shines ever brighter.
Consider also your giving to God through St. Paul. Give now online by clicking here. Or by mailing a check to 715 South Third Street, Clinton, IA 52732.
A modified in-person worship has resumed for those who wish to attend in person. For those who wish to remain home we will live stream the service on line each week.
You get to invest in calling people to worship, feeding hungry people, and nurturing a sense of community and hope despite the isolation and uncertainty. Your gifts mean even more now, in these economically chaotic times.
Worship January 3, 2021 Second Sunday of Christmas Areas highlighted in pink below will link you to the readings.
