Every where you go…

Everywhere you go there are logos that tell you or remind you that something is produced by, supported by, owned by, or sold by an individual or group.  Branding is an important part of our world.  The United Methodist Church is no different.  We brand our “product” with the Cross and the flame, but there is more.  Do you know the history of our “logo”?  Read this article and learn more.  The Cross & the Flame

Treasures of Time

The “Treasures of Time” reunion cookbooks have arrived at St Paul’s.  They are available before and after church and at the church office for only $15.00.  You may also pick them up at The Rushville Pharmacy.  This cookbook is a collection of 623 recipes from 1924 to today.  See familiar and new names from the times and tasty recipes to try.  These will make great Christmas presents, shower or wedding gifts or gifts “just because”.  Don’t wait to get yours and a few extras.  Money raised will go to support different areas of worship at St Paul’s United Methodist Church. Checks should be written out to St Paul’s with cookbook written in the memo line.
