What's Happening With St. Paul's

May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Romans 15:5-6

  • Upcoming St Paul's Events

    Sunday, January 24, 2021

    Worship Service, (Livestream Only) 10:30am

    This Sunday, pastor Ryan will be continuing the Revelation series with chapter 20.


    If you missed last week's message, Revelation: The Rider on the White Horse, you can watch it on our YouTube Channel or listen and share it through our our podcast.


    Once again, service this week will be livestream-only. Willington is still on red-alert, as are most of the towns in Connecticut (more so than last week). Please take care to reduce the spread of the virus.

Learn more about the St. Paul's Community, what's going on behind the scenes, and how you can get involved. More information, including a zoom meeting link, can be found in the meeting agenda. All are welcome.

  • Other Events

    Fifth Sunday - Multi-Church Prayer Zoom

    Sunday, January 31, 6:00pm

    In these difficult times, the need for unity among God's people and for prayer is extraordinary. For a number of years believers from northeast Connecticut churches have gathered on "fifth Sundays" to seek the Lord, to worship and especially to pray together. The heart of these meetings has been the pursuit of revival. I believe that these prayer gatherings are a centerpiece of the Lord's great Kingdom work. Zoom session details will be sent when we get closer to the event.

  • Community

    St. Paul's Virtual Small Groups

    During these unusual circumstances, we want to do what we can to maintain and strengthen our fellowship. If you haven't received an invitation to participate in a St. Paul's virtual small group, or are unable to participate in the group you were invited to, please email Pastor Ryan so we can find a group that works for you.


    An Offer of Free Professional Counseling 

    The Outreach Team has recognized that the circumstances of this past year have likely taken a toll on many peoples' mental health. If you would like to try meeting with a professional Christian counselor, the church is offering to pay for three sessions through Regeneration Therapy. Their staff's mission is to meet the emotional, spiritual, and mental health needs of individuals, couples, and families by fostering healing, hope and transformation. Please contact Pastor Ryan if you are interested.

    News from the MACC Food Pantry:

    Let’s talk Grocery Shopping! A struggle for some, fulfilling for others. What if you could help a family who is hungry by putting a warm meal and feeling in their heart? Grocery stores have “buy one get one” deal’s often. Donate your “get one” items to our emergency food pantry and share that warm feeling to a family in need!

    Let your donations to MACC be a teaching tool for the next generation of our future families!
