Join us on Sun, Dec 1
Prayers will be offered at services this day for those who are incarcerated and their families and for jail and prison employees. St. Paul’s joins Forsyth Jail and Prison Ministries to offer this annual holiday outreach ministry, “In The Name of the Father,” to provide gifts for imprisoned fathers to present to their children.
This program allows inmates at the Forsyth Correctional Center to present their children with gifts at the center’s Christmas party. On November 17, tags will be available in the library for each child whose father qualifies, showing the child’s gender and age. Parishioners choose a tag and buy two gifts for the child; a piece of clothing and a toy, game, or other appropriate gifts. Each gift should have a value of about $20, making the total for each child $40. The unwrapped gifts, with the child’s tag attached, can be placed in the labeled “In the Name of the Father” bins at the Goodheart Entrance through Sunday, Dec 8.
Crisis Control Christmas Cards are available starting Monday, November 11 at the second-floor reception area for $5.
All proceeds from donations of this card directly benefit the Crisis Control Ministry.
St. Paul’s is excited to partner with the Episcopal Student Fellowship at Wake Forest University. This is a great and vital part of our local ministry. ESF builds community in many ways, including:
- Weekly Wednesday Night Dinners

ESF welcomes any and all who want to join regardless of background, gender identity, religious affiliations, sexual orientation or really anything else.
