At St. Paul’s we seek to offer hope in all situations and life stages. We know that busy families need hope and less stress. So, once a month we offer a program for families through SOS – Sharing Our Stories. It is a time to feed mind, body and spirit. To make connections with others in a similar life stage and with a God who wants to make connections.
Why SOS (Sharing Our Stories)?
Do you have trouble getting to church on a Sunday morning? Hm! We may know something of what your week might be like. During the week the morning is filled with getting ready for the day, having breakfast, packing lunch/es, and getting your child/ren to daycare or school. If you work inside the home or outside, multi-tasking is the order of the week…homework done? Laundry? Nutritious meals to provide in 5 minutes and where was that work report that needed to be submitted yesterday? And then there is trying to squeeze in actual quality time with child/ren and with your partner. Does conversation while driving to and from something count? Finally the weekend rolls around and you are fitting in all of the wonderful programming activities that your child/ren do/es.
So we kinda understand why on Sunday the s-word, “sleep”, sounds like a much better choice that the s-words “Sunday service”, or maybe on Sundays you are still engaged in activity whether it be more programming, errands, housework or some badly needed downtime. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a stress-free worship option for families? One that offered a break from the busyness of life. A time to feed mind, body and spirit. To make connections with others of like life-stage and with a God who wants to make connections.
If you’d like to join one of our meetups, inquire and we’ll let you know what’s happening at that particlar time. Or if you have some ideas around what you would like to participate in, please share your ideas with us.
