What's Happening at St. Paul's?

Kids, Youth, and Family opportunities here:

Sunday Worship: June 16

Worship Guide: Sunday, June 16, 9:00 am

The Bible is full of stories of beloved heroes of faith, but if we pay attention to the characters who fade into the background, the story gets a lot richer. In the middle of Pride month and with some new directions in the United Methodist Church, we will listen to some of the characters, ancient and modern, who have been pushed out of the story. Join us for worship at 9:00 and 11:15 am.

Join us for Neighborhood Meals

We are excited to offer free meals to anyone in need, every Monday through Friday, through August 23 (closed July 4), from 12-1:00 pm. Neighborhood Meals provides meals to families and individuals as well. Come and enjoy a meal at St. Paul’s Wesley Center, where five churches are working together to support this wonderful cause with volunteers throughout the summer.

Summer Intergenerational Gatherings

The Family Ministry Team is planning several Intergenerational fellowship opportunities this summer. These gatherings are for all ages: children, youth, and adults. Children under 12 must have a guardian present with them for each event they attend.  

Kernels Baseball Game

Join us for a Kernels Baseball Game on June 27th at 6:35 pm. The event costs $12 per person and registration is required. Payment can be made online or in person at St. Paul's UMC. The Kernels baseball game is a St. Paul's Intergenerational Event.  Registration required:

Five Season's Ski Show

Save the date for the Five Seasons Ski Show on Tuesday, July 23rd, at 7:00 pm. The event will occur at 2021 Ellis Blvd NW Cedar Rapids, IA, across the street from Ellis Pool. Due to limited space, arriving 45-60 minutes early is recommended. St. Paul's members are encouraged to arrive early to secure spots to enjoy the show together. Remember to bring a blanket or lawn chair. This free intergenerational event is open to all ages, but children 12 years old and under should be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Pool Party at Ellis Pool

The Family Ministry Teams of Lovely Lane and St. Paul’s have partnered to host a free swim night at Ellis Pool (2000 Ellis Blvd NW, Cedar Rapids). The event will take place Tuesday, July 23rd, from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm, and all ages are welcome. Children 12 years old and under must have a parent or guardian with them. The cost of this intergenerational event is completely free!

United Women in Faith – Get Love!  Give Love!

It’s all about sharing the Love. United Women in Faith offer one another God’s love, accepting and supporting one another on our journeys through life. No matter our age, each of us experiences challenges and joys which need to be shared in supportive fellowship. Circles and creative groups are the place where we can “get love” to strengthen and support our daily lives.

With this strength, our response is to “give love,” especially in support of women, children, and youth. Joining with others, we make a difference for those who face disadvantages. Our theme is “Love in action can change the world!”  

Want to experience more of Getting Love, Giving Love? St. Paul’s “younger women,” ages 35-50, are invited for a special breakfast fellowship and informational gathering on Saturday morning, June 29, at 9:30 in our Gathering Space. RSVP to Ute Adams, one of our enthusiastic newer members who has discovered the joy of being a part of United Women in Faith!

Circuit Worship Service on July 7

Join United Methodists from other churches in Cedar Rapids and the surrounding area on Sunday, July 7th at 9:30 am for our Circuit Worship Service at Veterans Memorial Auditorium. This will prove to be an inspirational time with others from beyond St. Paul’s. We will not have our regularly-scheduled 9 am or 11:15 Worship Cafe on this day.

Art Exhibit by Helen Hunter

Helen bloomed late as an artist. She wished she could paint watercolors. But with no formal training, how could that happen? That wish became a reality when she read in an artist's book that "you can learn to paint." Please view Helen Hunter's art in the Art Space through the end of June. Read Helen's artist bio.

Fellowship Opportunity

Join us for a fellowship opportunity with fellow United Methodists from the area on Thursday, September 26, 2024. We will be taking a Celebration Belle Mississippi River Boat Cruise with live music and buffet lunch included. Classic Oldies will be played on board.

We will depart from the Lovely Lane Church Parking Lot (2424 42nd St NE, Cedar Rapids) with boarding starting at 8:00 am on a Windstar motorcoach. We will depart at 8:30 am and return at approximately 5:00 pm.
