Comforters are made by the group to be distributed to missions and other local projects. Anyone can participate who wants to cut fabric into blocks, sew blocks into quilt tops, and/or finish the comforter. The sets can be obtained at church by anyone who likes to sew them together into quilt tops at home. At the church on sewing days, the bottoms and in-betweens are cut and attached to the quilt tops by tying. The ladies who tie the comforters then will take them home to bind the edges.

 

The group typically meets on the third Thursday during the months of September through May from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. Check the calendar for additional dates or changes to the schedule.

 

Donations of fabric are always welcome.

 

St. Paul’s Filling Guild is part of the Women’s Guild of the Filling Memorial Home of Mercy. The Guild is an organization of women whose purpose is to help with the various needs of the residents of the Filling Home through prayerful support and through their time, talents, and finances. Through the generous efforts and the support of its members, both individually and collectively, the Guild has been able to accomplish a great deal to benefit the residents of the Home. The guild at large has purchased equipment and furnished rooms at the Home; provided countless pads, bibs, and other supplies; and served as volunteers at the Filling Home with mending, office work, and countless other tasks.

 

Our annual membership drive takes place in November. All ladies are encouraged to become a member of the Filling Guild. Dues are a minimum donation of $1.00.

Wayne and Toledo; Motawi Studio in Ann Arbor; Airstream Factory in Jackson Center, OH; Hayes Presidential Center; and the Butterfly House in Whitehouse.

The Stephen Ministry is a system through which individuals are trained and organized to help provide Christian care giving to individuals in the congregation and community. The Stephen Ministry is based on the idea that all Christians can be effective, trained caregivers with high quality training – thus equipped to bring Christ’s healing love to people who are grieving, in crisis, or experiencing other stresses in life.

 

Since its inception here at St. Paul’s in 2004, Stephen Ministers have provided and/or continue to provide one-on-one care, prayer, and support to those going through a difficult time. At the time of their commission, a Stephen Minister commits to serving a minimum of 2 years as a care-giver. The training they have received carries over into all aspects of their life as they utilize the Christian care-giving skills and tools they have acquired to not only their care-receivers, but to friends, family and co-workers, as well.

 

Any man of the congregation who is interested in local projects to benefit the church and community is welcome. The group meets on the third Saturday of each month for breakfast and a meeting at 7:30 a.m. usually for about an hour and a half.

 

Projects consist of improving the church property inside and outside. Recent projects include landscaping the front entrance way and painting the playground equipment and gazebo.

 

In 2017, the “Super Saints” grand total was $8,185.36. Henry County raised $197,188.52. Thank you to everyone for all of your help and support.
