Family is the single most important influence in a child's life.
We are here to help you on your journey.
Dear Families,

Thanks to everyone who sent in their photos for our Nativity! It so beautiful and thanks to Kristi Mullins, our artist, for creating these fun photo collages!
We're taking a break and going outside!

We will be taking a break from our Zoom Sunday School this Sunday, December 27th and January 3rd. But we will return on Sunday, January 10!

We want everyone to get outside and away from screens: ride a bike, take a walk, go to the park, read a book or two. And when you come back inside - draw a picture or take a photo and share those with us. We'd also like for everyone to share photos of Christmas morning!

**And we won't be sending out an Eblast next week.


Virtual Christmas Pageant Photo!

And here is our Christmas Pageant Photo! Enjoy!
Christmas @ St. Paul's! | Join us Christmas Eve or Christmas Day!
We wanted to capture the spirit of Christmas in a meaningful way during this season when we are unable to all gather together in person. We know it is hard not to gather in person but hope this offering will invite you and your family into the holiness and joy of this season, as we celebrate the birth of Jesus and his message of hope, peace, and love for our world.

Join us as we usher in the Christmas Season with the premiere of our Christmas Eve/Christmas film. Below are a couple of ways you can watch the service:

  • Participate with the St. Paul’s family! We will host a viewing or “Watch” party on Facebook. This option is similar to Facebook Live and allows you to watch this pre-recorded video in real-time with others from St. Paul’s at the appointed times below. (Note: this is the same service just viewed at different times) – www.facebook.com/stpaulsrva.
  • Christmas Eve, December 24th @ 4:00 p.m. on Facebook
  • Christmas Eve, December 24th @ 9:00 p.m. on Facebook
  • Christmas Day, December 25th @ 10:00 a.m. on Facebook

  • Watch anytime! The Christmas video will be accessible on our YouTube Channel, on Facebook, and below on our website starting at 3:55 p.m. on Christmas Eve through the entire Christmas Season. Pop popcorn, mull some cider or make a little hot cocoa and gather around the Christmas tree to watch at a time that is convenient for you or re-watch whenever you want.
On Wednesdays, Faith @ Home sends out a weekly set of devotions for the upcoming week based on the Revised Common Lectionary. These devotions invite you to engage in the discipleship practice of ReadingReflecting, and Responding to Scripture in the context of community.

Thanks for being a part of our family!
