Newsletter Renamed

Notice anything different?  The Circuit Writer has just been posted to the webpage.  The name change reflects the addition of Glenwood, New Salem, and Wesley United Methodist Churches to the St Paul’s charge.  Pastor Roy is now covering a four-point charge with the addition of Rebecca Milne at his side.  The hope is that news from all four churches will be reflected in the Circuit Writer newsletter.  It is important for you, the members of these churches, to get information to the St Paul’s office by the 15th of each month either via email ( ) or by mail.  The newsletter is under the media tab each month.



Gleaners Mobile Pantry will be in Milroy this Saturday, September 1st between 10:00 am and 12:00. This will be the last Milroy distribution this year.
Gleaners will visit Rushville on Sept 10th due to Labor Day.
Please remember to bring your own boxes or containers.


Welcome Pastor Rebecca!

St. Paul’s is now part of a Four-Point Charge.  What does that mean?  St Paul’s will join with Wesley UMC, New Salem UMC, and Glenwood UMC to share Pastor Roy in supporting the congregations and in worship.  The plus side of this change is we all gained Rebecca Milne as part of our congregations.  Roy and Rebecca will team up to alternate churches monthly.  The pairing is Wesley and St Paul’s or Glenwood and New Salem. Rebecca is at St Paul’s for the month of August.  See the Epistle to learn more about Rebecca.

How do we at St Paul’s Connect?
There are always interesting things going on at our church, but do you know about them?  How do you find out about activities?  How do you communicate?  Do you follow posts on email, blogs, and/or newsletters?  Do you use a smartphone or your computer or both?  These are ways of communicating and we need to learn more about them and get better at connecting with our church family.  Maybe this will take off and we can get some good ideas and create a following. Our app works so that you may also follow us that way.
