Spring is finally here and it’s not just the trees and flowers that are blooming. St. Paul is alive with activity! At our April Church Council meeting we took time to acknowledge all the wonderful activities that are happening and the impact these events have, not only on our own congregation, but community wide as well. Church Council extends a thank you to all who planned, who led, and all who participated in these activities that enable us to be a Beacon on the Hill to all around us.
The Kids Coalition Against Hunger Community Meal Packing event, held at Hedke Elementary School in Trenton, was a huge success with 25,000 meals packed. These meals will be used here in our country as well as around the globe. The Special Needs Awareness Sunday was a first for our congregation but will undoubtedly be a repeat event as St. Paul hopes to begin partnering with special needs organizations in our community. Our annual Women’s Retreat was held in March at the beautiful Maumee Bay Resort and the spiritual lives of all women, including those from our congregation and those from area churches who attended, were impacted in significant ways. The weekend trip included a service project for Elli’s House in Detroit which houses and feeds women who are victims of trafficking, violence or homelessness. The Holy Week dramas and special music were sensational and touched the lives of all of us in our congregation and many from our surrounding areas. The Strong for Life initiative has hosted Yahweh yoga classes, Cardio Circuit training classes, and the Pew to 5k training classes to help our congregation and community become healthier inside and outside. Connection Church is sponsoring the May 4 World Vision 6k Walk/Run to provide safe drinking water for those who desperately need a drink of water, with the opportunity to sponsor the child identified on your vest.
There are so many wonderful things happening at St. Paul, too many to mention here in this article, but there is something for everyone to support or participate in and to help God’s Kingdom grow. Check your bulletin, the church newsletter, or the church website and get connected!

We live to know Christ and make Christ known!
