Welcome to St Paul’s United Methodist Church

Covid Taskforce Update

These are the changes accepted by the Covid Taskforce at their May 5th meeting.
  • Communion: Starting May 15th, we will invite the congregation to come to the front for communion. The individual communion elements will be available for those who need/want to be in their pew. We will use individual cups for juice and break from one loaf. Hand sanitizer will be used.

 

  • Fellowship Hall usage: We want to begin having coffee after worship. Potlucks should remain on hold, but coffee and snacks are appropriate. We would like to have the Fellowship Hall open this Sunday.

 

  • Choir and Bell Choir: We are asking to put bell choir and choir on the schedule to begin this fall (when school begins). We hope to find people willing to lead these ensembles and have time to prepare over the summer.

 

  • Offering: We are in agreement that passing the plate should not return. I will give the offertory prayer, the doxology will happen immediately after the prayer, and an usher will bring up a plate at that time. A second plate will remain at the back in case someone needs to give their offering at the end of worship.

Assistance for New Mexico Fire victims

 

from District Superintendent, Rev. Craig Cockrell:
After meeting with the ABQ District Missions committee, and in consultation with several local churches and organizations, we are asking for ABQ district United Methodists to pull together in support of those affected by the many fires in our district, including the largest fire in the USA at this time.  Hundreds of people have been displaced from their homes, some awakened in the middle of the night to evacuate without preparation.
 
There are approximately 500 persons at the Glorieta Conference Center at this time.  This is where we are currently focusing our response.

Here’s how you can help:
Pray for the health and safety of those displaced by, in the line of, and fighting these fires.  Pray for the stilling of winds.  Pray for individuals and families who are traumatized by these events.
Give money through your local church mark your check  ABQ Fire for amount you want to contribute to the this special collection. Our Online giving site will also have a category for the ABQ Fire Special.

Give items needed now:  hygiene kits, bottled water, phone chargers, pet food, toilet paper, diapers, women’s hygiene items; NO CLOTHING AT THIS TIME!
Give children’s items: NEW! Puzzles, games, crayons & coloring books, bubbles, all kinds of balls, yard games.
 Volunteer at Glorieta.  They especially need kitchen help as they feed the 500+ they are housing (call Daniel Ruff at Glorieta – (330) 590-0981)
