St. Paul’s Scrip Program – https://www.stpaulsbangor.com/scrip-program/
SCRIP refers to gift certificates or gift cards (great for holiday gift giving).  St. Paul’s is able to purchase gift cards from hundreds of retailers nationwide at a discount, which you can buy at face value.  The difference is our school’s profit. By purchasing these gift cards before you shop for your everyday items – like groceries, gas, restaurants – we raise money, without you having to spend a penny extra.  Also available on the “Raise Right” mobile app are e-gift cards that can be used instantly via your mobile phone. Questions:  Contact Janel Lochen at 608-386-4243. Deadline for December Scrip orders is December 10.    

COVID-19:   With the increased concern about the rapid spread of the virus in our area, please be respectful and cautious around one another.  Do what you can to avoid contracting or spreading the virus.  May God graciously keep us all safe and healthy!

Virtual Children’s Christmas Eve Service
Due to COVID restrictions and concerns for our children, our Christmas Eve service will look differently than in years past. The day school children will record their Christmas messages to the congregation earlier in the month and these recordings will be shown in the Christmas Eve worship services. The theme for the Christmas Eve worship service will be: “A Changeless Christmas in a Changing World.”
