What is it? It’s a way for members & friends of Saint Paul’s to connect with each other by way of a shared zip code.  Our Area Check-In Hosts lead a brief “check-in” twice a month on Zoom that averages no more than 30 minutes.  Our purpose is to “check on” the health and well-being of our congregation and pray for their specific needs.We have them in every area. Visit Try Groups for more info!

Have a warm, caring heart? You can be a “check-in” host. Area Check-In Hosts are needed for zip codes 23231-Varina, 23228-Western Henrico, 23060-Glen Allen, and 23188-Williamsburg.  If you live in either of these areas and are willing to check on and pray for members in your area twice a month, visit Try Group Life and register to serve as an Area Check-In Host.

Message Series: Never Going Back continues this Sunday!

Series Description: What makes a tragedy truly tragic is to go through and not be changed by it. What makes a tragedy really tragic is come out of it the same way you went into it. Tragedy should transform you and take you someplace you’ve never been before. Don’t wait to “go back,” prepare yourself for the new future God has for you. This series will show you how.

Join us for Bible Study Series this Thursday!

Bible Study Description: Research on gifted and talented children shows one common problem that most of them experience. Gifted children are often bored in school or with life in general. Very often they are never challenged to use their gifts and so they waste them. The same thing happens with many people of faith. Our gifts go unused because they are never challenged or commissioned into use. Paul’s letter to the Christians in Corinth addresses this issue by providing “Guidelines for the Gifted,” so they could live their lives to the glory of God. Join our Senior Pastor and Chief Dreamer, Dr. Lance Watson as we walk through this critical book of scripture and discover how to use the gifts God has given to us, to the glory of God in the service of others.
