Weekly Announcements

THE ANTI-RACISM Book/Bible Study continues on December 3. If you wanted to join, this is a great point to join as we are transitioning from a study to a Book Study. We’re reading Ibram Kendi’s “How to Be An Anti-Racist” and discussing it in connection with scripture. The Study is on Zoom only and the link is available under Upcoming Events. Feel free to contact Pastor Will with more details.

OUR ANNUAL Angel gifts project to provide Christmas gifts and happiness to the Our House trainees and the children of our sponsored Damascus Help families begins December 1st. Leslie Hinkle will send out the Angel Gift ideas and information via email to the social media group. Those who wish to participate, but are not part of this group, are invited to contact Leslie at or 301-414-0043.

Leslie will provide several days and times over the weekend of December 18-20 when folks can come by church and drop off their wrapped gifts. Please put a note on each gift indicating the recipient’s name and its contents. Let Leslie know if you have questions or need further information. Thank you.

AS THE PANDEMIC continues, we know that families in the community continue to struggle with food necessities. In response, we are collecting canned and non-perishable food items over the next couple of weeks. We will share these items with Manna so they can help provide food for those in need. Contact Pastor Will (301-330-0539) or Tina Burke (301-275-0584). You can also drop off your food on the bench outside the church and email Pastor Will to pick it up (

THEOLOGY ON TAP will be held Tuesday, December 8, 7:00 pm., via Zoom (link at Upcoming Events). Discussion topic: "What We Talk About When We Talk About Christmas”: Christmas means a lot of different things to different people. Even Christianity has become confused in its understanding of what the holiday means and is. So we will share what Christmas means to our faith and our life. What does Jesus’ birth do? Why does it matter that Jesus was born like every other person? Please join us for interesting and thought- provoking discussion!

STEWARDSHIP…If you have not done so, we ask that 2021 financial commitment cards be returned as soon as possible. Thank you for supporting the ministry at St. Paul as we plan for the coming year.
