Advent is such a beautiful time of the year, a time to get excited! Prepare your hearts for the Lord. Enjoy some pictures of how we decorated our worship space in preparation for the festival of Christmas.
Things are getting exciting… Christmas is almost here! While there are a lot of festivals and holidays this time of year, don’t miss out on the best one. The Christian Christmas is something we celebrate all year long. God himself took on flesh to come for you. To live and then die for you so that He would be the sacrifice, the gift to God that makes us right with Him.
To keep this at the heart of the season we have some extra worship opportunities.

Thank you to all those who came and who helped with a busy day at St. Paul. First we had a great (and goofy) time at our Christmas for Kids event. The children sang, danced, made crafts, decorated cookies, and listened to storybooks. Then The Branches Band came and shared the Gospel to us in song.
It is almost here! The morning of December 1st St. Pauls Clintonville will host a free event for children… and an excellent opportunity for parents to do some shopping without them. Join us as we have a fun morning that reminds the children the true joy Christians have to celebrate during the Christmas season.

We rejoice that Stephanie and Pastor's baby girl was safely born on November 14th. There was a complication with the pregnancy that made things difficult and risky. Doctors repeatedly said this baby wouldn't survive but thanks be to God! Little Magnolia and her mom are both doing well.
Visit Steph's blog to get the latest updates and to read through her experiences with the difficult pregnancy.
Thanksgiving is almost here! Are your plans underway? Have you started cleaning or buying the groceries you need? In the hustle and bustle of the holiday, don’t forget about the ravens. Not the team, the birds. Come Wednesday November 21st at 6:30pm as we reflect on how the Lord provides for us. When the Lord’s servant Elijah had no food, the Lord provided for him in miraculous ways. He commanded ravens to go and bring the prophet food. The Lord still provides for us in ways we don’t even know. The Lord also uses us to be ravens for others, providing for them. Come and celebrate the gifts of the Lord.
