March Chimes

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, Have you ever given something up for Lent? A Lenten fast, or abstaining from a particular things during the season of Lent, has ancient origins in the church. You can find many examples of fasting throughout the Bible, and the act of denying oneself bodily is meant to draw…

February Chimes

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, In the past two years that I have been blessed to be your pastor, I have been delighted to experience God at work in both expected and surprising ways. I could not imagine a better time to arrive at St. Paul’s than the beginning of the 250th celebration. I…

January Chimes

Dear Member, A special congregational meeting has been called for Sunday, January 22, the sole purpose of which is to consider and vote on a call to Pastor Laura Tancredi to serve as sole pastor of St. Paul’s. So that we can deliberate as a community, the meeting will follow immediately after a single service…

December Chimes

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, Advent blessing to you all! Every year, I am struck anew by the juxtaposition of Advent and December.

At St. Paul’s, we have many, many activities and worship events to get involved with (Take a look at the calendar!), and we have also been considering how we as…

September Chimes

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, Sometimes it feels like whoever set up our calendars got things wrong when they made the new year start in January. For a lot of us, September and all the changes that come with it feel much more like a new beginning than January 1st does. Schools and colleges begin…

July/August Chimes

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,   As July slowly turns to August and we approach the end of summer, I like the rest of you, am adjusting to the retirement of our Senior Pastor Skip McDowell. Pastor Skip served at St. Paul’s for almost ten years, and he and Pam will be missed for…

June Chimes

My Dear Friends- First, let me say “thanks” for the wonderful Celebration of Ministry picnic and fun time on Sunday, May 22. I so appreciated all the time and effort that went into that wonderful event. Thanks for the book of pictures, the many letters and cards, all of the work it took to make…
