On the best advice of the medical community, St. Paul’s United Methodist Church is cancelling all worship services INCLUDING this current weekend, and for the next two weeks. The church building will be closed to all activities for the next two weeks as well, including community groups. We hope to be able to resume activities by Monday, March 30, but will keep you informed. We will live-stream a service with Pastors Karen and Jeff at 10:30AM 3-15-20 and 3-22-20 on St. Paul’s Facebook page.

St. Paul’s Preschool, Child Care, and Kidz Korner are CLOSED for the next two weeks, beginning Monday, March 16, to protect our children and youth. We hope to reopen Monday, March 30, but that will depend on recommendations from our area school districts and local health and safety guidelines. Watch for notices from St. Paul’s about the viability of future events, until this crisis abates. If you are not currently registered for Remind 101 text updates, please do so to keep up with developments regarding our response to COVID-19.



  • If you have a water well and pump, keep an emergency supply of bottled water and consider filling your bathtub with fresh water.
  • Keep a flashlight and extra batteries handy. Use care when burning candles; open flames are a fire hazard.
  • If power goes out, unplug appliances like refrigerators and freezers, and sensitive electronic equipment like TVs and computers, so that they won’t overload when power is restored.
  • Gather extra blankets or a sleeping bag for each person. Portable heaters and burning candles that are left unattended, especially around children and pets, can create a fire hazard. In addition, gasoline- or diesel-powered generators and appliances can produce deadly levels of carbon monoxide and should never be operated inside the home or garage.
  • Stock an emergency supply of convenience foods that do not require cooking.
  • Keep a battery-powered radio with extra batteries on hand. Tune in to a local radio station for current storm information.
  • Have a hard-wired telephone or a charged cell phone handy in the event you need to report your electricity is out. Mobile phones can be charged in your vehicle using a car charger when power is out. A smart phone can be used to access online information sources.

Stay out of flooded basements, even if the power is off. Stay away from the breaker box if it’s in a flooded basement.
