You have an opportunity to experience the wonder of the Holy Land with a world class scholar, teacher and preacher, Dr. R. Bryan Widbin.

This is a special 10 day trip for all ages that will visit many treasured locations in the life and ministry of Jesus. Come walk where Jesus did as you witness places such as the Jordan River, Jericho, the Dead Sea, Meggido, the Mount of Olives, Gethsemane and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. The cost for this 10 day trip is $4,450 per person and includes airfare, transportation and meals. For more information please visit www.biblesettings.com, pick up a brochure in the narthex at St. Paul's or speak with our Youth Director, Hector Meza. We hope you and your family will not miss out on this incredible opportunity.

Youth
September 2014
by Hector Meza

1 Thess. 5:14 “And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone.”

Recently, the Youth Group had an opportunity to help out with a VBS program hosted in Hamburg, PA. The elaborate games and rides along with the workshops and dramatic presentations took weeks of preparation, planning and hard labor. The VBS was quite an event for the small community and Zion Church, but the hard work resulted in about 400 children and parents attended the week-long event. Over 60 of those students decided to say a prayer asking Jesus into their hearts. It was a great outreach and we were very blessed to help, even if it was just a bit.

Flip Flop

In a children’s message I did a while back, I quoted a page from “The Blue Day Book For Kids.” The book is a brilliant take on getting yourself out of a funk, those days when everything seems to be going wrong. One of the pages suggests standing on your head. It’s a great way, the book says, to see things differently. It goes on to say that more adults should try this.

In the movie Dead Poets’ Society, Robin Williams’ character, a teacher at a private all boys school gets his students to stand on their desks at the beginning of one class. Why? To see the world differently.

Pastor's Pen
September 2014

by Pastor Alan Darby

Dear Friends,

Can you imagine a church where everyone in the congregation knows how God has specifically designed them to be involved in the vital life and ministry, has found their personal “niche” for serving and is discovering how to be fruitful and fulfilled in the church’s ministry to make disciples for Jesus Christ? All too often people don’t get involved because they don’t feel equipped or don’t know where they fit. Also people become over committed and burn out, serving in ministries that don’t really fit them. Wouldn’t it be great if we could have a greater percent of the right people, in the right places, for the right reasons, at the right time- serving the Lord in ministry teams to further the Kingdom of God!

Missions
September 2014

July was a very busy month for Missions at St. Paul's. Five people went to Mozelle, Kentucky. We went to Kentucky to work with the Lower Beech Fork UMC. We started our trip with John and Bill preaching Sunday Morning due to the minister being ill. Once again proving God has the silliest plans on Mission trips. We finished a tin roof the team before us had started for a lovely lady named Alberta. We used our finger-painting skills to fill in the gaps on the roof with roofing asphalt while John put the tin sheets in place, finishing off the roof just in time for very heavy rain the weekend we left. We also did the interior of the bedroom for an 11 year old girl, Marilyn who has been sleeping in the corner of her Grandmother Rosanne's living-room for the last 6 years since her mother passed away. Thanks to the wonderful people of St. Paul's when we left she had a florescent green bedroom (her choice) linoleum flooring (which she helped lay) weather fighting blinds, which is important since the house has no heat, a ceiling fan, with light, complete bedding set and a beautiful prayer shawl from our wonderful crochet group. We also put gutters on the house hoping to keep some of the water away from the house.  Marilyn went from a little girl laying in the corner to one by Wednesday that helped in every way she could. When we left she told me that her cousin had taken her to Lexington once and they had seen a very expensive apartment and that's what her room looks like. She gave us all hugs and a thank you note. We have set a date for next year Kentucky trip I hope that you will pray and consider going with us. There is a lot of work to be done and we could use all the hands we can get. It doesn't take skill just a desire to help Gods people. We will be going July 18th to July 25th. Please join us.
