Adam Granger In Concert - October 8


St. Anthony Park resident Adam Granger (guitar, banjo, electric guitar) has performed for years in the Twin Cities, including numerous appearances on A Prairie Home Companion.

Granger and some of his musician friends will offer an evening of music (and fun banter) in our beautiful new sanctuary acoustic. Proceeds will support these local musicians AND will help to fund our mission trip to Back Bay Mission in Biloxi, Mississippi.

Saturday, October 8
7:30 PM
Pay-what-you-can at the door; $15 suggested
Bake Sale at intermission — see Marge Grahn-Bowman if you are willing to bake!
Invite extended family, neighbors, co-workers, friends



Moving Is Stressful - Gentle Transitions Company Can Help


Moving out of your home late in life and/or emptying a home after the death of a loved one can be overwhelming. Gentle Transitions Co. aims to minimize the anxiety and physical stress of moving. Come and learn how to ease the transition.

We’re offering this session as an extension of the Caregiver and Bereavement Support Groups.

Saturday, October 8
10:00-11:30 AM in the Parlor
Free of charge, open to the public—tell your friends and neighbors



Mission and Witness Listening Session - October 9


The Board of Mission & Witness seeks your input and wisdom about two things:

1. The Dorothy Day Center in downtown St. Paul is undergoing major construction. This will impact Loaves & Fishes in 2017. The Board wants to be in conversation with the congregation about what this might mean for our cooking and serving meals next year.

2. We have learned of a potential new service project that provides food for children and their families over the weekend through a school-based organization called “The Sheridan Project.” Avivah Brown will be our guest to explain the program and what it would entail if we were to partner with them.

Please take part in this Listening Session on Sunday, October 9, 11:45 AM-12:45 PM. Your voice matters.



Muslim Women Rising - October 14


Time for another Friday Night Out!

Nine months ago, Nausheena Hussain launched the Twin Cities non-profit RISE (Reviving The Islamic Sisterhood of Empowerment), which is dedicated to building a movement to address leadership development, increase community engagement, and create a philanthropic legacy for change.

What barriers or opportunities are there for Muslim women in leadership? How does Hussain’s faith fuel her advocacy work and commitment to social justice? How can we, as non-Muslims, be allies? What are some concrete ways we can bridge the divide between Christians and Muslims?

Friday, October 14
5:30 PM Spaghetti and salad
6:15-7:45 PM “Muslim Women Rising” with Nausheena Hussain
Free of charge
Invite extended family, neighbors, co-workers, friends



Bible 101 for Young Adults - October 23, November 30


Ken Gowdy is leading these sessions especially for Y’ALL — Young Adults Learning and Living.

All young adults (and their friends beyond SAPUCC) are invited to learn with Ken and with one another. Come and learn about the Bible — there are no dumb questions. Seriously.

Bring your own snack or lunch
Child care provided



Mission Trip 2017


The mission trip is a go!

Eleven SAPUCCers will be going on a mission trip to Biloxi, Mississippi in February 2017. We'll be part of a larger group of volunteers, joining other UCCers from the Minnesota Conference UCC.

We will spend the week at Back Bay Mission, which is a UCC owned and operated mission site that has been serving the Mississippi Gulf Coast community since 1922 -- 94 years!

We welcome your prayers and support as we prepare for this journey.
