St. Paul Coronavirus COVID-19 Update

With recent changes to the Epidemic Order coming from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) the St. Paul Council has decided to resume in-person Sunday Worship Services beginning Sunday, January 3, 2021.  We will also continue to stream our worship services utilizing Facebook Live.  Sunday School and Confirmation classes will also resume as in-person beginning January 3, 2021.

The Annual Business Meeting has been moved to Sunday, January 31, 2021 at 11:00 am from Sunday, January 17, 2021.  We hope that by moving it to a later date that more members will be able to attend this important meeting.  We will be approving the 2021 budget and electing new Council members.

All of the following meetings and events utilizing the facility will remain cancelled or continue as conference calls. TOPS and Exercise Classes remain cancelled until February 2021, Bible Study continues via Conference Call and Girl Scout meetings on site are cancelled until February 2021.  Rental of the facility is still on hold.

The office remains closed for normal business, but staff will begin to report on a more regular basis beginning January 1, 2021 to address the critical needs of the Church. We will continue to provide updates on a regular basis as we know that the COVID pandemic is changing very rapidly. The safety of our members and staff is key in our decision regarding in-person worship services, meetings, and events.

Day-by-day our pastoral staff (Pastor Drutchas, Pastor Schalm, and Parish Nurse Kathy Williams) remain in touch with church members through Facebook, the church website, and individual telephone calls.  Please let your pastoral staff know by telephone ((313) 291-1221) or email ( about any specials needs that have arisen for yourself or your family where your church family can be helpful.  Pastor Geoff continues at his church office every day and can be reached there on the church telephone line (313) 291-1221. If no one answers the phone when you call, please leave a message and someone will return your call promptly.

Let us all pray for a quick recovery to the COVID-19 pandemic.  We will continue to update you monthly as to the status of activities at Church.
