A Word from Bro Steve

  Bro Steve at the PulpitWe need everyone’s help. Traditionally the summertime is a time that attendance starts to wain in most congregations. People take vacations or have visitors. Maybe it’s just too hot, or too wet, or too hot. In the natural ebb and flow of church attendance, the summer is known as the “summer swoon”.
St. Paul’s is not like most congregations. We are enjoying nice crowds so far. We need your help to keep that momentum going. You will not be working alone, and we will have several programs that will help.
Our VBS for Grownups will be August 10,11,and 12. We will meet at 5:30 PM for snacks and finish around 7:30. Our theme this year is “Pair ‘uh Bulls of Jesus” the cowboy way. It will be lots of fun. What could make it more fun? More people. Start spreading the news now!!! This is something we need to tell, because it is one of the things we do very well.
The summer worship will be fun as well. I will dress a little more casual, ( just kidding- I don’t think I can get anymore casual.) We will do some things a little different however. What things? I’m sorry, you will have to come and find out. It’s the law.
We need your help. We need everyone to be excited, and to tell people the good news. The Holy Spirit is doing great things at St. Paul’s UMC, go tell your friends.
Go-Fight-Win. Amen.
Bro Steve


Great Mission Opportunity

Hello Everybody!reading   

We have been given a great mission opportunity . Dr. Marilyn Broughton, who is a reading specialist at AC, has approached us about setting up a literacy program at Cook-n-Serve. She already does one at Diboll and has done these ministries in other states for many years. It will be offered both in English and Spanish.
What we plan to do is start the reading tutorials at 9:30 on the first, third and last Saturdays there on Second Street.
We will hopefully need people to volunteer to help tutor. She can teach you the program in a little over an hour. We will start signing people up this week to kick off on our third week. We will work in both English and English as a second language, (Spanish). If you are moved to help, Call Marilyn at (772) 940-9910 ( it is a free call) or email at mbroughton@angelina.edu or call me at (936) 676-8584, killam_steve@hotmail.com.
G0-Fight-Win. Amen.
