Back to School service project

St. Paul’s has an opportunity to serve our neighborhood school, Edgemont Elementary School, by bringing in facial tissues in boxes (with no lotion or fragrance), hand sanitizers in 8 fl. oz bottles, and Clorox wipes. The challenge for St. Paul’s is to provide 200 facial tissue boxes and 50 hand sanitizers for Edgemont Elementary. There are 25 classrooms with an average of 25 students in a class. Facial tissues and hand sanitizers are in great demand. Here is an opportunity for St. Paul’s to reach out, build relationships and be more involved in our neighborhood.

We will also be making 25 Classroom Blessings bags that will be assembled Sunday, September 22nd. Needed items for the blessing bags are: #2 pencils, Ball point gel pens, Crayola crayons 24 count, Elmer’s glue bottles, Elmer’s glue sticks, Crayola markers, Scotch tape and Post-it notes.

Please bring all items to the collection table in the Fellowship Hall by September 22nd. We will assemble the bags after the 10:30am service. Thank you!


Summer mission

Our Summer Mission for St. Paul's UMC will be the Idaho Falls Summer Food Service Program (SFSP). The program is sponsored by school districts, local government agencies, camps, or public/private nonprofit organizations. Many meal sites also have games and reading activities to build healthy bodies and minds. The SFSP helps our children return to school in the fall ready to learn.

We are partnering with New Day Lutheran to provide food for underprivileged children in our area. Sign-up below to be a part of this new endeavor. Thank you so much for your interest in this ministry to our community and for your partnership.

You can click here to sign-up to help make the meal or serve the meal.

If you are not able to help with the food prep or food service but would like to donate to support the cause, click here. All of the funds donated here will be used only for the Summer Food Service Program. It will not be used for anything else.

Thank you for your support!
