  • The Fellowship Committee

    It makes a positive impact on all parishioners with fun events at least four or five times each year. This group organizes and coordinates the receptions held following events such as the Bishop’s annual visit and other special events as they occur.  Please contact Bill Swan (229) 344-1076.

  • Love Group

    This group of parishioners and guests (everyone is invited) meet in the Parish Hall on the second Wednesday of each month at 12:30 for lunch. There is usually a speaker, sometimes from local non-profit organizations, and sometimes from inside the parish. It provides a learning and fellowship opportunity along with a good meal.  Please contact the church (229) 436-0196.

  • Mens Chill and Grill

     Primarily a hospitality ministry, usually meets at the home of a parishioner on the third Thursday evening of most months.  Each man brings his own meat to grill and his favorite beverage; side items are provided. Each year, there are two highlights: a homemade chili contest and a Low Country Boil. These men also cook for church functions such as the annual Pancake Supper.  Loring Gray 432-1709.

  • Episco-Chicks' Wine and Cheese

    On the first Thursday of each month at 6:00 pm, the ladies of St. Paul’s gather to share a glass of wine and some yummy appetizers. We take turns hosting, so you are likely to host only once every two to three years.  The hostess provides a non-alcoholic beverage, wine glasses, and paper products.  The others each bring either a bottle of wine or an appetizer to share.  Please contact the church office (229) 436-0196.

  • Shepherding High School Students

    Generally known as the Shepherding program, begins each fall when St. Paul’s high school seniors are matched with adult members who interact with the seniors, pray for them, send notes of encouragement, and generally provide extra support for students in their life-changing, final year of high school.  We also stay in touch with our college students by sending cards and a care package during exam week.  Please contact Molly Swan (229) 344-2268.

     

  • Newcomers Committee

    This group welcomes visitors and newcomers into the parish and organizes bi-annual dinners for newcomers.  Please contact Annabelle Stubbs (229) 869-2888 or Molly Swan (229) 344-2268.

  • Foyer Group

    Any adult, single or married, is invited to join this social group.  Twice a year, those who wish to participate are grouped with six to eight others and take turns hosting a group (Foyer) dinner.  The host provides the entre’ and the rest is brought by the others.  This is a great way to get to know others from St. Paul’s as well as to enjoy some great food!
