A little more detail about upcoming events at St. Paul's

  • Faith & Film | Summer Series

    Pastor Mike is offering a Faith and Film series this summer. We’ll gather in the Fellowship Hall on three Wednesday evenings at 6:00pm for dinner (bring your own!), watch some wonderful movies, and enjoy conversation afterwards on the themes in each film. 

    Here is the Faith and Film Summer Series schedule:

    June 12: Babette’s Feast (G)

    This 1987 film won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film, and is Pastor Mike’ favorite movie. It tells a moving story of a world-famous chef who transforms a small Lutheran community in Denmark through her God-given culinary gifts and generosity.

    July 10: The Great Dictator (G)

    In 1940, Charlie Chaplin made a comic masterpiece in which he portrays a Jewish barber who looks very similar to a certain fascist dictator. Chaplin explores the themes of what it means to be human in trying times.

    July 31: The Way (PG-13)

    Emilio Estevez directed this film that stars his father, Martin Sheen. As a way to deal with his grief, the father follows in the footsteps of his son who died while walking the El Camino de Santiago. Along the way he meets others who are facing their own struggles in life.

  • Men's Bible Study

    Following the Way of Jesus in the Gospel of Mark

    Monday, July 29 at 7 PM in the Parlor

    All men of St. Paul’s and the community are invited to join Pastor Michael Coffey for a monthly Bible study on the Gospel of Mark. Mark’s Gospel is fast-moving, challenging, and inspiring. Mark forces the reader to confront their own fear and doubt so they can follow the way of Jesus with courage. Pastor Mike will guide the group through the whole story of Mark with plenty of conversation and exploration of how the themes in Mark connect with our own lives.

    The first meeting on July 29 will be an introductory talk about the Gospel of Mark and how to read the New Testament – a great beginning for those with less experience reading the Bible.

    The second meeting on August 19 will be a chance to hear the Gospel of Mark dramatized in a video presentation, giving everyone a chance to experience hearing the whole story at once, as it was originally intended to be heard. After that the group will meet on the third Monday of each month. Contact Pastor Mike if you have any questions.

  • Grain & Grape | Pub Theology

    On the first Wednesday of the month, we gather at Home Sweet Farm to raise a glass and read deeper into a Bible story.  We ask a lot of questions, we learn more about the historical context of Jesus’s life, and we always end up learning more about our lives too.  Come join us at 7:30pm to be a part of this monthly gathering. All are welcome!

  • Fill the Basket
