What is Alpha?

Mark Your Calendar

Alpha Classes Starting

Alpha classes are slated to start on Wednesday, September 27th. The study goes for about 11 weeks.  Times will be 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm.  (Dinner at 6:00 pm, with study at 7:00 pm)  Alpha is based on the New Testament teaching of bringing friends, family, and work colleagues to meet Jesus in a non-threatening environment.  It’s an easy way to say to friends, “Come and see. Come and explore your spiritual questions.  Come and hear about Jesus.  Come and see for yourself.”  Everyone is welcome at Alpha, whether they are a church-goer or not — or even if they are a seasoned Christian and desire to have their faith strengthened.  Interested?  Mark your calendars and watch for more information coming soon.


“Simply Give”

We’ve Been Chosen

This program, that helps stock our “God’s Storehouse” food pantry, is once again being sponsored by the Maumee Meijers, on Conant Street, from Sunday, August 20th through Sunday, September 16th.  It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3.  1) Pick up a red/orange/white “Simply Give” card in the Gathering Space near the Welcome Center.  2) Take the card with you when you shop at Meijers or pick up a card at Meijers and present it to the cashier.  3) He/she will add your $10 donation to your shopping total.  That’s It!  Your $10 donation will be tallied.  At the end of the program, St. Paul’s will be given your monetary donations in the form of gift cards which we can use to restock the God’s Storehouse. The Outreach MAT would like to thank you, in advance, for helping others by your generosity!
