Serving the Living Lord....Past, Present and Future



We are again planning to send care packages to our St. Paul’s college students and members serving in the military.   Donations to fill these boxes would be most appreciated!   Individually wrapped items like hot chocolate mixes, teas, ramen noodles, granola bars,  gum, candy, microwave popcorn, small packs of Kleenex, pencils, note pads, & chapstick, are always a big hit.  (please no liquids).   If you would like to help, please have your donation to the church by Feb 3, 2019. We will be packing the boxes on Wed evening and mailing them to arrive before Valentine’s Day.  There will be a box in the fellowship hall to collect your donations.    Please verify your student’s or military person’s address with the church office so they can be included.  Contact the church office at 734-242-3000 with any questions.  Thank you for caring and sharing!
