MOMMY & ME
BEGINS JANUARY 24
St. Paul’s will begin a new social, spiritual, and service-oriented ministry for moms of young children — infant through age five. Mommy & Me will meet Wednesday mornings, beginning January 24, from 9:30-11:00 in the Faith Room.
This ministry will begin with a social, get-to-know-each-other focus, and move towards blending social, education (secular and spiritual), and service into the mix. Usually moms and children will be together but there may be special times when moms and children will be separate.
Former St. Paul’s School Teacher Samantha Lindner, who became a full time stay-at-home mom to Aria last year, will serve as the group’s facilitator. For more information, contact Samantha at (989) 284-2854 or Dr. Nelson at (414) 422-0320, ext. 145.
DIVORCECARE SUPPORT GROUP
BEGINS JANUARY 9
Divorce is painful. It is not what God intended when he instituted marriage, but in this sinful world it happens, and it hurts. If you have gone through a divorce then you may be experiencing some of the pain, loss, loneliness, and confusion that comes along with it. We at St. Paul's are here to help and support you. You are not alone.
If you are separated or contemplating divorce we are here to help and support you as well. With God there is always hope. "May your unfailing love be with us, LORD, even as we put our hope in you" (Psalms 33:22).
St. Paul's offers DivorceCare, a Christ-centered 13-week program which includes video segments, group discussion, and personal Bible study. Feel free to attend anytime throughout the 13 weeks to find help, discover hope, and experience healing.
DivorceCare meets Tuesdays from 6:00 until 7:30 pm in school classroom 8. To register contact Kristen Miller at , (414) 422-0320, or just show up on Tuesday.
CANCER SUPPORT GROUP
Have you recently been diagnosed with cancer? Are you currently battling cancer? Are you supporting a friend or family member who has fought or currently battling cancer? Sometimes people are overwhelmed in these situations and say, “I can’t do this.” God tells us, “I can do everything through him who gives me strength.” (Philippians 4:13)
The St. Paul’s Cancer Support Group would also like to offer support. We have members of all ages who have been affected by cancer in some manner. The group has compiled a variety of information which can be found in the Cancer Support Group corner of the church library. If you are a cancer survivor, are currently battling cancer, or have friends or family members fighting the fight and would like to join our group, or would like to speak to someone for support, please contact Karen Schram at (414) 529-5544 or Judy Schmidt at
ALZHEIMER’S SUPPORT GROUP
The St. Paul’s Alzheimer's Support Group for care partners meets to provide comfort and resources for care partners, easing the burden of this dreaded disease. As people who are dealing with similar challenges share their experiences, care partners realize they are not alone, nor are they the first to face such challenges.
A unique feature of this group is applying the comfort of prayer and God's Word to individual situations. This support group is sanctioned by the Alzheimer's Association. The St Paul's Alzheimer's Support Group meets the 3rd Tuesday of each month, in the church library from 6:30 to 8:00 pm. The next meeting of the group will be January 16. For more information contact David Timm at (262) 787-5955 or Andy Timm at (414) 254-3548.
St. Paul’s recognizes the unique ways each person deals with the loss of a loved one and offers a couple different ways to support you through the challenges surrounding this time. One of the ways is through a 1:1 visit with one of our team members who has personally been through the loss of a loved one and can come alongside you to listen, share and pray with you in your time of need. You will also receive a copy of the book series “Healing the Grief” through the first year following your loss as our way of supporting you in your day-to-day walk. The other option we offer is through a support group called GriefShare. GriefShare is a video-based support group where you can walk together through 13 weeks of messages on how to find healing and joy in your journey. For more information on the 1:1 visits, email Annette at or, for more information on GriefShare, email Sharon at .
