ST. PAUL'S 20TH ANNUAL CHILI COOK-OFF, DESSERT AND SILENT AUCTION:  was held Sunday, March 6, 2016, at Perch Point Conservation Club on Meisner Road just east of Palms Rd.  This yearly event has evolved into great food, great fun and great fellowship.  Despite the intense competition and laughter, not to mention eating too much, there is also the occasional problem of outbidding your neighbor at the gloriously delicious dessert auction.  See the photos on the Gallery page
Interfaith Food Pantry: Non-perishable food items are ALWAYS needed - please place in container in back of church.  We will bring to the food pantry located at St. Martin's Lutheran Church in Marine City & St. Mary's Catholic Church in St. Clair.  In 2015 we have collected over $1500 worth of food items.  
St. Paul's Adopted Families for the Holidays: Our congregation helps some families in need for the upcoming holiday season with food for dinner, some basic groceries and Christmas gifts.  Thank you to everyone who brings items for Thanksgiving Dinner and Christmas gifts.  Thank you again to Llinda Thueme and her committee for this wonderful service!!
