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

Dear Families,

Please know that all families are invited to join us on Sundays at 9 a.m. for Sunday School whether its your first time or you've visited before. This Sunday will be the first Sunday in Advent as we begin our journey with the Holy Family to Bethlehem.

Join us for Sunday School every Sunday at 9 a.m.

Please contact me for the Zoom sign in information for this Sunday. It will be a recurring event, so hang onto the info for the rest of the year. Linda Willis (lwillis@stpaulsrva.org). 


Last Sunday, we learned about Ella Fitzgerald and a very special friend of hers. This friend made it possible for Ella to present her beautiful voice and eventually break down racial barriers.

In case you missed it, here is Karen Harris' story:
Celebrate the Season with a Pageant Costume!

We love our Christmas Pageant tradition and this year we invite you to take the pageant home and share your photos! We have lots of shepherds, angels and sheep, some lions, a donkey and three crowns for wise men. All babies are invited to participate as baby Jesus - just find something blue around the house to swaddle up in! Do you already have a pageant costume handy? That's great - just use the one you have! All are welcome to participate.

CLICK HERE to review the available costumes and sign up.

Include your Family Name and Age of Participant so we can pick the right size. Costumes will be available for pick-up at the church on Saturday, December 5th from Noon - 2:00 p.m. If you cannot make it out to pick-up, email Linda Willis at lwillis@stpaulsrva.org to arrange a delivery.

Once costumes are in hand, all that is left to do is don those festive outfits and snap a photo to share! Send photos to Kristi Mullins at kristenem123@aol.com.


We look forward to celebrating this virtual pageantry with you all!
