Weekly Announcements

Stew Supper

THIS WEDNESDAY is the Stew Supper from 4pm to 7pm. If you are planning on doing drive up/take out, please visit www.stpaulsmilaca.org/stewsupper ASAP to place your order. Otherwise, if you are dining it, be aware that we have limited seating, are practicing Social Distancing, and we will serve you vs. you taking your own food.

We are still in need of volunteers to help serve, clean, and other odd jobs. Let Jen VanDonsel know if you can help.

Trunk or Treat

St. Paul’s will hold a fun and safe Trunk or Treat on Saturday, October 31st from 4pm until 6pm. We need folks with cars and a little time to decorate their cars and trunks and hand out candy. We have pre-selected themes available for you to select, or you may use your own ideas. Please keep your decorating Christian (no blood/gore, witches, warlocks, etc.). If you are unable to bring your car hand decorate it, consider helping in other ways such as: traffic control, making hot chocolate or hot apple cider, manning the photo booth, donating candy or decorating items. If you have questions, please ask DCE Intern Madi or Pastor Carlson. Note: if you need decorations, check out www.orientialtrading.com and browse through the Trunk or Treat sections.
