St. Paul's Excavating

The sidewalk has been removed from the west side of the church, and the hillside has been sloped so water will run away from the church. Thank you to Kevin Krarup and crew for doing the work.


In this season when we can be overburdened and stressed out with shopping and preparations for our family celebrations, make sure to take time to slow down and reflect on the incarnation and birth of this child who is the eternal Son of God come to save us.

-Excerpt from Pastor Dan's December 2004 letter.

Prayerfully consider His Word as you prepare to go to the polls this election day. Pray for the election, that God's will is carried out in this and every, land. Pray for those who lead this country and all other countries, now and throughout the year.

I'm Pastor Dan and I approve this message!

-Excerpt from Pastor Dan's November 2004 letter.

I can't stress enough how much we all need spiritual refreshment. We live in a culture that is so busy, so hectic and crazy, that we all need to make time for the study of God's word to strengthen us for life in this world.

-Excerpt from Pastor Dan's October 2004 letter.

Okay - August disappeared way to quickly! We had an awesome week of Vacation Bible School that first week - over 55 kids registered throughout the week, many with no church affiliation. Follow up is being done to encourage those kids without a church home to join us, so that what was begun at VBS may continue.

-Excerpt from Pastor Dan's September 2004 letter.
