All September is Penny Wars
During the month of September we will be collecting change during the penny wars. We will have four jugs set up with the age groups of 0-18, 19-35, 36-66,and 67-99. We will be having a penny war between the age groups above. Each penny =1 point, for any coin not a penny, negative points are given: (nickel =-5 points, dime = -10 points, quarter= -25 points, and for a dollar = -100 points).
Each Sunday we will count how much each age group has collected and then report the points of each age group the following Sunday. The group having the most positive points and the least amount of negative points wins!

There is always a need for food (either as a primary or secondary source So we are always asking our members and friends to consider donations of non-perishable food items and/or monetary donations so that the mission can purchase the items most needed. If you intend to give a monetary donation, checks should be written to GAEFM and cash donations should be put in a sealed envelope and sent to the church or put in the offering plates on Sunday mornings. You may send your donations to the food mission to the church. Please write “Food Mission” on the envelope so that it may be directed to them. Thank you in advance for your caring and generosity during these most difficult times.
If you have an acute need for prayer, there is a group at St. Paul that will stop what they are doing, call one another and begin praying. Call the church office or Beth Ann Johnson (616 754-3515) or text (616 894-0299)and request the prayer chain. We need a name (first only is enough) to get this started.
If you would like to become one of those who pray for others, contact Beth Ann Johnson and be prepared to be called upon to pray. "... For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them." Matthew 18:20
Youth and Family Ministries
Our Youth and Family Ministries work to help our youth of all ages to encounter
Christ-- and grow in understanding—through the written Word of God/the Bible,
God’s creation, and the community joining together in both work and play.
Our youth are invited to worship services (Sundays and Wednesdays) or to play in the nursery or to participate in Kid’s Church. Kid’s Church runs the months of the school year, and begins each Sunday after the Children’s Sermon. Our children also lead in worship in a variety of ways: serving as acolytes, lighting candles and assisting with communion; participating in our Youth Sundays; providing music; and acting in the Children’s Christmas Program.
Faith Formation for our Youth includes: Baptism (infants, children and adults), First Communion
Preparation, Kid’s Church, Affirmation of Baptism, Camps and Retreats.
Linking with other organizations such as Living Water Ministries, our youth are invited to participate in a variety of camp experiences. Our beautiful camp grounds provide an excellent setting in which in discover the gifts and grace of God in the world, each other, and especially Jesus Christ.

A mail box has been installed at the entrance of the labyrinth. It will contain prayer cloths and a “Let Go and Let God” prayer card. As you walk the labyrinth you might consider any cares and concerns you may have. In the center there will be a device in which to tie your prayer cloths to and leave them there. Your thoughts as you walk out of the labyrinth could be of thanksgiving. There are many ways to walk the Labyrinth this is just one of them.
