RC Youth Group Workcamp returns

Rush County Youth Group Workcamp Inc. will sponsor another Work Camp July 7, 2019 through July 13, 2019.

The group will do home repairs at no cost to the residents. Those jobs will include porch repair/construction, wheelchair ramp repair/construction, painting, weatherization and mobile home skirting. There are pictures on the bulletin boards in the sanctuary where you can see some of the projects we have done in the past. We are asking that anyone who needs or who knows of anyone who needs help to pick up an application in the Church office. If you have any questions, see Monty Howell for more information.

Youth Sunday-November 18th

The youth and children of St. Paul’s will present a puppet program for Youth Sunday on November 18 (The Sunday before Thanksgiving) during the 10:00 a.m. service. This will be the only youth and children program during the holiday season, so there will not be a children’s Christmas pageant this year. If your child or youth is interested in participating and you have not let Linda Petty know, please let her know now at lindakpetty@gmail.com or 317-919-9657. If someone wants to participate, but doesn’t know their schedule yet, please let Linda know, and she will work with you finding something for a last minute addition. A practice will be scheduled during the week before the program.  

Adopt-A-Child Christmas

Adopt-A-Child Christmas: We now have the list of families who are especially needy this Christmas. The kids’ Christmas tree will be put up in the Sanctuary with tags listing needs for each child. Tags may be  chosen by members of the congregation. After unwrapped gift items are returned to the church, we will then have a wrapping party with the parents in December.  

Samaritan’s Purse Christmas Shoeboxes are here!

 This year, the Samaritan’s Purse shoebox distribution project celebrates its 25th anniversary.
Each box is an opportunity for children around the world to experience God’s love (we are His hands and feet!) and to hear the Gospel.
A shoebox follow-up discipleship program is available to these children to learn more about following Christ. Shoeboxes and instructions for packing the shoeboxes will be available to pick up in the sanctuary during this month. We will drop off the donated shoeboxes during the November collection week.
NEW THIS YEAR! Remember that any type of candy, gum, toothpaste, liquids or lotions, and breakable items are not permitted.
