Heartfelt thanks are expressed to all who helped make Advent/Christmas 2018 memorable for music at St. Paul's! Included are bell ringers, composer, conductors, Instrument players, financial donors, and singers; both from our congregation and be- yond.
This year featured the newly-revived Saint Paul's Handbells, who "rang" in both services December 23.
Christmas Eve services contained the premier performance of "Hear the Promise of His Birth," by new St. Paul's member Carl Cerniglia.
The Church Choir, Praise Team, and Spirit Instrumental Ensemble were "near their best" every time they sang or played.
Bob and Peggy Erickson hosted an- other fabulous Music Ministry Christ- mas Potluck.
Carolers of all ages, from the choir and congregation sang at Trinity Grove and homes of shut-ins. St. Paul's children helped lead carols at the Church-wide Christmas Party.
What joy and pleasure it has been for me to work with our capable Music Associates, Robby Anderson and Con- nie Batchelder, and the rest of our supportive church staff! Even greater music is "on the way." Come join us in 2019! Happy New Year!

Scoot a Little Closer to Jesus Hebrews was a sermon for a specific people and culture in the midst of martyrdom and persecution, but is also so relevant for us today, remind- ing us to continue walking toward Jesus regardless of our culture or our circumstances. Join Lisa Harper as she journeys through this bridge between the Old and New Testaments to get to the heart of the matter: Jesus is our ac- cessible King. He is not a faraway God, but an up-close Redeemer who draws near to us. Hebrews helps women make the connection between God the Father and God the Son and reminds us that Jesus is supreme, but He is also compassionate, empathetic, and loving to no end. Lisa makes dig- ging into Hebrews fun and doable, as only she can, without losing an ounce of depth. Join us Thursday evenings in the An- nex from 6:30—8:30 p.m. beginning on January 10. Workbooks are availa- ble at Life Way Christian Store. Con- tact Tammi Gates at (910) 200-4415 with any questions.
On Sunday, January 20, St. Paul's will be hosting the 2019 Martin Luther King Jr. Community Worship Service at 4:00 p.m. in the Church Sanctuary. The service will be put together by the Wilmington Ministerial Roundtable, which is a multi-racial inter-faith group of ministerial leaders who lead in are- as of racial reconciliation, justice, and peacemaking.
One of the goals leaders and mem- bers of our congregation have stated to me is for our church to be more involved with our community. This event will bring many people together and create a wonderful opportunity for us to play host.
I welcome all of you to come and join me that afternoon.
