Naomi Circle meets once a month for Bible study. The time that we meet is 9:30 a.m., in the Fellowship Hall the last Tuesday of the month. We are a group of women who are retired or just semi-retired. We share our thoughts and knowledge on Bible lessons in the "Gather" magazine. It is formatted for women in the church. We are a small part of the Rocky Mountain Synod Women's Organization. Through RMSWO we can attend gatherings/conferences with our neighboring states.
Besides doing the Bible lesson, we have refreshments and we acknowledge birthdays. Our offering is divided between the synod and a percentage goes to Mosaic ( a home for developly mentally challenged individuals). We also contribute to a community organization once a year. Some months we have special events, such as going to a restaurant, on a picnic, or maybe a potluck with friends and/or family invited. We do not meet in July. There is always a Christmas party. The personal gifts we receive in Naomi Circle are many. Join us (no membership fees required) and reap the rewards!
Both the women of St. Paul’s and the men have a bridge club that meets monthly on the 3rd Tuesday of the month. Often the clubs meet jointly at the church, but on occasion a club member may host at their home. Play begins at 6:30 PM. Both clubs have a variety of members from the very experienced to the brand new player, and beginners are welcomed. If you would like to join or just come watch please call Bob at 635-9090.
There are numerous ways we would welcome your involvement to enhance worship at St. Paul’s. Each Sunday attendees volunteer to serve as greeters, ushers, readers, and communion assistants. There are opportunities to minister to the young through children’s sermons, and the older by offering transportation for those unable to drive to worship.
If you’d like to help, but not during your worship time, the altar guild members volunteer their time on scheduled Saturday mornings. They are responsible for changing the seasonal paraments (colors), setting communion, watering the plants and dusting the Chancel and Sanctuary.
Please call or email the church office for more information on these important volunteer opportunities.
St. Paul’s is blessed with rich musical talent and appreciation for the way in which music enhances worship.
For the more traditional, we offer a Cantate Choir that practices on Sunday mornings at 8:15 am (except during summer) and performs during worship 1-2 Sundays a month. For information on joining the choir, please contact the church office or Emily Peterson.
For the more contemporary, we encourage you to join the Creative Worship team. If you are interested, please contact Anna Thompson or the church office.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” Philippians 4:6 St. Paul’s has an active prayer chain designed to lift up the urgent prayer needs of our members/regular attendees and their families and friends before our God. The prayer chain is based on the strong belief in the power of prayer and the profound impact that it can have. Prayer support can be requested by calling the prayer chain coordinator, Caroline Adolphson.
St. Paul's quilters have been around for some time. Over the many years, people have donated nice pieces of material to our closet. We have accumulated quite a stash! During the school-year months, interested ladies gather in the basement to cut, measure, sew and mostly tie any sized quilt. In the fall we give them to agencies to help the less fortunate. These people may be local youth-adults here in Cheyenne. We also send them to Lutheran World Relief to be shipped to communities where poverty, injustice and human suffering persist. Recently we sent 42 to Haiti and 5 to Nepal. We incorporate God's love into each quilt and send His blessings with every gift.
We begin again in Sept and meet the 2nd and 3rd Mon at noon. We are on the church monthly calendar if anyone would like to join us. We also have partially cut or ready-to-tie quilts in a box in Fellowship Hall which are ready to be taken home by the home sewer.
Faith Community and Parish Nursing

The course consisted of 12 Internet Sessions of 2 hours each from February 2 – April 27, 2015 and a two day retreat May 1 -2, 2015.
They passed out a Faith Community Health Needs Assessment Survey to members of the congregation. 33 completed surveys were returned. Information from surveys will be used to plan future programs.
