||St. Paul's Community Church (UCC)
||The selection of St. Paul’s UCC Church as recipient of this year’s Christmas Eve Offering gives us all an opportunity to continue to grow our 50-year partnership with St. Paul’s. To support this ministry of caring, fighting
poverty, and all that goes with those issues, it is imperative to furnish St. Paul’s with resources to first enable the repair and upgrade of the facility they
minister from, providing a safe, healthy environment while doing God’s work. How grand it would be to celebrate our 50-year relationship by raising $50,000 on Christmas Eve!
