Our fellowship programs are one of the great joys of life at St. Paul’s! Our goal in these diverse events is the same—to foster an atmosphere in which a person can be known and appreciated as a child of God. There are a multitude of ways to be involved in the life of St. Paul’s. All are welcome to attend. Here is a sampling of our fellowship events geared towards children:
Trick-or-treating in the pews
Started in 2016, this fun tradition helps mix the generations has our littlest ghosts and goblins process into the church, getting treats from parishioners.
Get ready for some old fashioned Halloween fun! Toilet paper mummy wrap, donuts on strings, graveyard scavenger hunt, costume parade - fun for all ages!
Potluck Thanksgiving dinner
The Saturday afternoon before Thanksgiving, parishioners of all ages gather to share their favorite Thanksgiving dishes and gratitude.
The Saturday before Christmas during the 10:00 service, hockey stick wielding shepherds, adorable little sheep and a feminist-before-her-time innkeepers wife join a cast of St. Paul's church school kids to tell the classic Christmas story interspersed with favorite Christmas carols.
The Tuesday before Lent, the tradition is to purge the pantry of all decadent foods. We combine this with a touch of Mardi Gras and pancake races for a celebration not to be missed.
The Saturday afternoon before Easter, dedicated volunteers fill and hide hundreds of Easter eggs around the church and rectory grounds while the kids play games and make crafts in the parish hall. At the end of a dramatic countdown, the egg hunting frenzy is something these kids will never forget.
Church School Picnic
We cap off the church school year with an afternoon of fun and games at a local playground. Egg races, water balloon toss, and other classic picnic games make this a wonderful celebration of all our church school achieves every year.
