Adult and Family Opportunities

Please check the calendar for meeting dates and times

Dementia Caregiver's Support Group - This group is designed to provide emotional, educational and social support for caregivers through regularly scheduled meetings.  The group helps participants develop coping methods and encourages caregivers to maintain their own personal, physical and emotional health, as well as optimally caring for the person with dementia.  This group meets monthly.  A complete description of the group and a signup sheet is in the Events Book at the Welcome Desk.

Needlecraft Group - This group meets on the second Wednesday of the month  in the lounge.  Bring your current needlecraft project (knitting, crocheting or other needlecraft) and join us for an afternoon of sharing our projects and fellowship.

Stephen Ministries - We are a Stephen Ministries church offering one-to-one ministry by trained, caring lay ministers. These persons minister to those who are experiencing loneliness, loss, retirement changes, anxiety and depression, hospitalization, separation and divorce, terminal illness, being shut-in, and other needs.

If you know of someone who needs care, or you are in need of someone who cares, who supports, who listens, and who shares, a Stephen minister is available by calling the pastor at 949-0880. A minister will be assigned to you. Everything is held in strictest confidence.

Libraries - We have two well equipped libraries at St. Paul's.  The adult library is located on the main floor.  In addition to books, we also have video tapes. The children's library is located downstairs in the main hall, which also includes many child friendly videos.
