Alternate Gift Giving This Christmas

This Christmas season, Heifer International invites us to honor our families and friends by giving Christmas gifts in the form of donations. Heifer International sends animals to families and communities in need around the world, to help eradicate poverty and hunger, and provide self-sufficiency. Donations can be placed in the St. Paul’s Ark during Sunday morning worship services or via St. Paul’s Heifer International webpage. Thank you for your generosity.

St. Nicholas Day Update

THE ST. NICHOLAS MINISTRY sincerely thanks the congregation of St. Paul’s for the generous outpouring of love you showed through the gifts you provided for the children served by our ministry.

The gifts have been sorted and delivered to the agencies we work with.  The smiles and expressions of love and gratitude that come from the parents and children as they pick up their gifts are touching and heart-warming.  You have truly made the love of Christ known through this effort.  Thank you!

ASP Fall Chore Day: Saturday, November 5

The St. Paul’s ASP (Appalachia Service Project) Team has been changing lives for more than 20 years, spreading love and care from Wake County to remote mountain towns of Appalachia. We are excited to launch a traditional ASP planning year for 2022-23, with our first fundraiser scheduled on Saturday, November 5, the ASP Fall Chore Day (8:00 a.m. to 12 noon).

We are here to help our St. Paul’s families with leaf raking, mulch, light tree trimming, and general yard cleanup! Our teams consist of two adults and two-three youth who can complete jobs for families who are interested. Please contact Stephanie Hirschy at if you’d like to sign up for one of our work crews.

Thank you!
