Transfer your membership to St. Paul’s

We are inviting people who join us for worship to consider membership in our church. For those of you who have been members at another church, this journey involves several steps. First, you are invited to contact May Bilash in the office (306 873 2424) to express your interest in becoming a member of St. Paul’s United Church. Secondly, the minister will call to arrange church office or home visit. During this contact, there will be the opportunity to prepare a brief biography (a paragraph or two). There will be a pre-membership party which will be followed days later with introductions and welcoming in a service of worship. All those being introduced in the worship service will be invited forward individually to stand together and bios will be read as people come forward. The congregation will stand and welcome you. We look forward to welcoming you to the St. Paul’s family.

Potluck Lunch

The first Sunday of the month St. Paul’s has a Potluck lunch following the service. If you forget to bring food there is usually
lots to eat (kind of like the story of “The Loaves and Fishes). It is a time of fellowship when we get to know each other better!
Please come if you are able.

Be ready, when you get a phone call to make an appointment, to come to the church for your Photo Op!
