Make new friends, but keep the old.  Join your friends and church family for the weekly Thankful Thursday pitch-in dinners on Thursday evenings at 6 pm.  Come even if you can’t bring something, because there is always plenty and you can make a donation to help replenish supplies such as table service.  Everyone is welcome.  This year we also hope to build on this time for a variety of additional activities.  Don’t miss this weekly meal.

The Undies have been delivered

The week of Aug 29th was a great week for the kids at Rushville Elementary Schools.  St. Paul’s United Methodist “dropped their drawers” to help the school nurse restock her undies closet so that kids don’t have to be embarrassed when those little accidents happen.

Mission Opportunity – “Undie Sunday” is Coming August 21st!!!!

If you have ever had children of your own, or worked with children, you know that extreme excitement can sometimes lead to personal accidents. These accidents happen quite frequently at school, especially in the elementary school level. We here at St. Paul’s would like to help our school age children by sponsoring “UNDIE SUNDAY”. Undie Sunday is going to be a time that we as a congregation can bring in new child’s size underwear to be donated to the local elementary school to help the school nurse, Laura Proctor, administer aid to those children in need after an accident. So, on August 21 we will have a large tub in our worship service to collect new children’s underwear and child’s sized sweat pants (these can be used as long as they are in great condition). What a great way to make our amazing schools even better.
