Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” (Hebrews 10:23-25 ESV)

St. Paul's Youth (SPY)
Sunday mornings at 9:30am
during Sunday School!
St. Paul's Youth (SPY) is a group for youth beginning in 6th grade.
The youth participate in fun social activities as well as community service projects and church worship activities.
The Youth sponsors are Chad and Andrea M. who actively coordinate this ministry with parents and volunteers.
The long-term vision of the youth ministry is to expand as the youth begin to bring friends to future youth meetings, regular activities, and service opportunities.
Chad and Andrea request your help, time, prayers, and are open to your suggestions as they move forward. Please reach out to them at SPY@StPaulsCrofton.com or click on their names above
Faith 5 is here at St. Paul’s!
Small kernels of faith over time yield big results
just as a tiny mustard seed grows into a really big bush.
Confirmation and Sunday School parents and grandparents
have been introduced into FAITH5
which consists of spending five minutes or more daily doing the following:
Talk about each other’s highs and lows for the day.
Develop caring and open relationships.
Read a short Bible story or verse together.
Talk about the Bible story or verse and how it might
relate to highs and lows or your lives in general.
Pray for one another.
Bless one another with the sign of the cross.
It’s okay if your miss a day or do not get to all five faith acts.
Just get started and keep at it.
I’d love to hear feedback.
Please share experiences and ideas so we can grow our faith together!
God bless you and your family as you nurture each other in faith!
"Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to them."
