Women's Bible Studies at St. Paul Lutheran

There are two active Women's Bible Studies at St. Paul Lutheran Church.  Each of these groups meet monthly (except during the summer) for a time of Bible Study and fellowship.  In addition to their regular Bible study times, the Bible Study members actively participate in many activities and mission projects both within our church and throughout the world.  If you are interested in being a part of one of these Bible Studies, or if you wish to have more information, please contact one of the Bible Study leaders, the unit president, or the church office.
Sarah Bible Study 
Sarah Bible Study (formerly Sarah Circle) will continue to meet the fourth Tuesday of each month in the church lounge at 1:30 p.m.  All women are invited to come together and discuss monthly Bible scriptures from the Gather magazine put out by the ELC Women. Copies of the study are always available. A lively discussion of the scripture’s meaning brings us many different views and insight. Coffee and dessert is served. Consider learning more and joining us. For questions, contact Carol Weber or Jenny Powell.

The Sarah Bible Study will be taking the summer off.  Their next meeting will be on Tuesday, September 25th, at 1:30 p.m. at the church.

 Eunice Circle 
The Eunice Circle meets on the 4th Wednesday of the month at 10:00 a.m.
They meet in the church lounge. 

The Eunice Circle will be taking the summer off.  Their next Bible Study will be on Wednesday, September 26th, at 10 a.m. at the church.  

Women of all ages are welcome to join either of the Circles.  It is a great time for Bible study, fellowship, and service to God.

Come join this wonderful group of women that are dedicated to sharing their talents for sewing and quilting as they share God's love by providing warmth to those in need. Read More

The next meeting time for the Yarnsters will be on Saturday,  September 15th, from 10:00 a.m. to Noon in the lower level conference room. 

There is a group of ladies that meet on Tuesday nights at Darn-It-Anyway if you are interested in getting together over the summer to work on projects.  There may also be a group  meeting in Pioneer Park one night a week to work on projects like they did last year-that has not been decided yet.  If you have any questions about the “Yarnsters”, you can contact Esther Longseth, Chris Peterson or Jan Stevens.

Members of the Yarnsters group have also been gathering with others from the St. Croix Valley at 6:30 p.m. at Darn It - a yarn shop downtown Stillwater - on Tuesday evenings.  You are also welcome to stop in and join them there!

Our “Yarnsters” team welcomes all who enjoy crocheting and/or knitting, as well as those who would like to learn how to crochet or knit.  During the year the team crochets and knits prayer shawls, prayer squares, crosses, baby sweaters, baby bibs, baby blankets, slippers, cancer caps and baby hats for Lakeview Hospital and hats for the “Hats for Africa” project. 


 If you know of someone who is suffering from an illness, is having surgery or who has recently had a baby, please contact one of the pastors, the parish nurse or the church office so that a gift from the Yarnsters can be delivered.  If you are going on a mission trip, the Yarnsters would love to send some of its beautiful creations with you to share with others.
