Serving the LORD
Be part of Splash Canyon VBS
Do you have a heart for children? Then we need you to be a part of Splash Canyon VBS – July 29-August 2.  You will help share the message that God is with us during all of the twists and turns of this life’s wild ride. There are opportunities to serve in many different ways that fit your interests and schedule. To volunteer, contact Greg Paul.
 
SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE
St. Paul’s is a drop-off point for the community’s annual Stuff the School Bus School Supply Drive, which runs through the month of July. School supplies of all types are needed.  However, those items in greatest need this year are: backpacks, notebooks, folders, colored pencils, markers, highlighters, water color paints, glue sticks, glue bottles, and scissors. This is a chance for us to care for the needy in our community. The school supplies will be distributed to children in the school district, who are from low-income families. Look for the collection area in the Welcome Center.
 
Donate Copy Paper
We are in need of 8-1/2" X 11" white paper (labeled multi-purpose or copy paper) for printing worksheets, letters, reports and other materials.  Some office supply retailers offer deals and rebates, so checks store flyers and websites. Donations of any amount are welcome.
Lotsa Helping Hands
We have a care calendar to help support those who may be recuperating from an illness, surgery, loss of a loved one, or other situation in which they could use a helping hand.  Volunteers can access the calendar from their home and sign up for the listed tasks as often or as infrequently as they wish according to their schedule and time constraints.  This is a very flexible opportunity to serve and this invitation is open to everyone.  If you would be willing to help, please join our community on lotsahelpinghands.com or contact Cynde Joosten at joosten@wctc.net.

 
Join A Ministry Team
We are always in need of people to serve regularly in our ongoing ministries. Visit our Minsitry Teams page for a complete listing of areas where you can put your talents and abilities to use in serving the Lord.  New volunteers are always welcome and training is provided.

    Email Prayer Chain
  • At worship we pray for people in the congregation who are ill or have had loved ones pass away. You have good intentions of praying for them throughout the week. However, by the time you get home you can’t remember who was mentioned. If that sounds familiar, then you may want to sign up for our email prayer list.  We will send you updates once or twice a week, so you know who is in need of prayer.  To be added to our list, just drop a note to us at churchoffice@stpaulwr.org. You can also sign up on our website. Look for the link on our Prayer Requests page.
     
    Submit Your Photo
  • We are collecting photos of families and individuals to put in our church database. This will make it easier for a new pastor to learn people’s names and faces. You can submit your photos electronically via email (churchoffice@stpaulswr.org) or bring in a hard copy for us to scan.  If we have good participation in this project, we hope to also print a pictorial directory from our database.

     
    Sunday Technology Help
  • We need a few more people to help with technology on Sunday mornings. Ideally, we would have three people working at each service, one to operate the PowerPoint, one to work the soundboard, and one to video tape.  Our ranks are especially thin at the 10:30 service.  Training will be provided.  If you can help, please contact Jeremy Buck at 715-712-0636 or jeremy.buck@msn.com.
