Children’s Ministries:  St. Paul’s and First Presbyterian Church are joining together to offer Children & Youth Ministries. We began with the Blessing of the Backpacks last Sunday and SLAM – the program for our elementary school-age children.  It is held on Wednesday afternoons at First Presbyterian from 3:30 to 5:30 pm. Games and activities, a snack, music, and a lesson are included with a focus on Serving God, Loving others And Making a joyful noise! Drop off and pick up happen at the First Presbyterian playground (or Fellowship Hall if it is raining). Stay tuned for more as we work to develop programs for junior and senior high school students.

End-of-Summer Party: In light of the rate of infection in Independence County, we have cancelled our back-to-school celebration. Instead, St. Paul’s and First Presbyterian youth will join together on August, 22nd after the 10:30 AM service for an outdoor End-of-Summer Party complete with water balloons, water volleyball, and hot dogs.
