Rally Day 2020
Join St. Paul’s in a Rally Day like no other! Help local organizations that are in need of additional support due to the COVID pandemic. Social Ministry has selected four opportunities for St. Paul’s to help those in our community (details below).
Members of the Social Ministry Committee will be outside the main entrance at St. Paul’s on September 13th from 9 am-4pm (wearing masks and staying six feet apart) to accept your donations. If you can’t make it on September 13th, drop-off bins will be available at church through Sunday, September 20th.
Whenever you drop-off, don’t forget to take a selfie with our “God’s Work. Our Hands.” banner and email to the church office so we can share it with the congregation.
Any contribution will make an impact: how can you rally to help our community?
Sunday School is kicking off on Rally Day with a Zoom gathering at 9:30!

On September 13th, pick up at-home craft packets and backpack blessing tags.
Join us at virtual coffee hour at 10:30 on Zoom.
