Education for Ministry (EfM) - Recruiting New Members
St. Paul’s has an active Education for Ministry (EfM) group that meets weekly. This coming year we will meet on Tuesday evenings from 6:00-8:30 pm. Meetings will resume in September, but now is the time to register.

If you are interested in learning more about the bible, church history, and Christian theology in a small group setting this could be the program for you. For more information contact Jean Larson at or 847-987-6949 (cell) or Kelly Pitsenberger at or 615-598-6695 (cell.)
Mask Donations
Do you love to sew? Do you have extra face masks laying around the house that you haven’t used? St. Paul’s would love to recruit any sewers out there to make face masks to add to our collection to hand out to guests and parishioners during this time. We want to do our part in preventing the spread of Covid-19. If you have extra unused face masks laying around the house, you can donate those, too! St. Paul’s wants to be able to offer this should someone need one. We need all sizes! A basket will be left outside the church office to make drop-off easy. Call the church office for more questions or email at
