St. Paul’s COVID-19 Updates

Here are some of the ways you can connect and participate in ministry at St. Paul’s during this time of social distancing. We’re continuing to Love God and all others unconditionally, Seek answers to our questions, and Serve God by serving others, all while staying at home to protect ourselves and others as best we can.

LOVE

Worship:
Participate in worship online during the Facebook livestream on Sundays at 10:00 a.m. The services will be available afterwards on our Facebook page as well as our YouTube channel so you can access them at any time. Find a worship guide and bulletin here.

Pastoral care & prayer:
If you have need of pastoral care (going to the hospital, a death or injury in your family) please email Pastor Sandra. Sign up for “Praying with St. Paul’s” email list or submit a prayer request here. Find suggestions for Praying in Place.

St. Paul’s folks, we miss you! If you want to check in with one of the pastors, we now have virtual coffee times. If you want prayer or just want to talk with a pastor, pick a time with one of us, and we will schedule a zoom.

SEEK

Small Groups:
We’re meeting online! Find out more here and contact Pastor Sandra if you have questions about how to get involved.

Kids & Youth:
If you’re not already part of the Kids’ Connection and/or Youth Facebook groups, you’ll want to join them now to stay connected. Jamie Turk, Director of Children and Family Ministries, and Allison Marcus, Director of Student Ministries, are available to help you get involved if you’re not already. You can also find updates here on our site for kids and youth.

Read the Bible daily:
We regularly post Bible verses on our Facebook page. Join the discussion!

SERVE

Serve from home:
We’ve compiled a list of ways you can serve from home during this health crisis, including sewing masks for health care workers, contacting your legislators, and writing thank you letters. Find the list here.

Now is an especially critical time to be prayerful about your giving; consider setting up recurring contributions if you’re able. You can do that here. You can also text your gift to 1-913-956-0436 or send checks payable to SPUMC to St. Paul’s UMC, PO Box 14342, Lenexa, KS  66285.
