News and Events


Altar Flowers are provided by Carol Bullock.

Building: The building is now open for groups to use. There will only be one group per week allowed, so it’s “first come, first served.” Contact the church office to reserve. At this time, we will not have Sunday School classes in the building. This will change in the future, but we are trying to work our way back slowly. Zoom classes are still going on though. Contacts: Call Scott Hayes (Faithseekers) @ 937-572-8629 or Pastor Gary (Pastor’s SS Class) @ 937-204-4400 if you are interested in joining or starting a class.

SCRIP Cards Available: Don’t forget to pick-up SCRIP cards for all your dining and shopping needs. We currently offer 32 different retailers/restaurants which include gas stations. SCRIP cards spend just like cash but are safer than carrying cash. Thank you for supporting this fundraising program.

Plastic Bottle Cap Collection: We are collecting plastic bottle caps for a memorial bench in honor of Barrett Hobby, a teen who passed away from cancer. You can place them in the receptacle on the fireplace hearth. 

Get your “Hanging On In An Upside Down World” book signed: Pastor Gary has copies of his book available. The book is $10, signed of course! Thank you for your support. (By the way, he is working on the follow-up.)

C.A.M.P. Donations: We received a “wish list” for September & October (see bulletin board). When you go to the grocery, if you are able, please add a few extra items to your cart. Please place food items in the rolling basket at the front doors of the church. Thank you!

Mark Your Calendars: St. Paul UMC (Dayton) Semi-Annual Steak Dinner will be held on Saturday, October 17, 2020 from 3—5 P.M. This will be CARRY-OUT ONLY. Please call (937) 252-4467 to reserve your meals. Cost is $10 for adults, $5 for children. Menu: cubed steak w/mushroom gravy, baked potato, green beans, tossed salad or applesauce, dinner roll and a homemade dessert.
