Parish Events

Vacation Bible School - August 28-31
Vacation Bible School will be held Monday – Thursday August 28 – 31 from 9 am – 1 pm.  Our theme this summer is Maker Fun Factory.  We will explore the ways that God makes us and our world and the ways that we can use the gifts God has given us to make things.

Vacation Bible School is open to children aged 5 – 12.  Teenagers are welcome to be helpers for community service hours.  There is no charge for Vacation Bible School, but we only have room for 12 kids.  The sign-up sheet will be in the parish hall in August along with permission forms.  Each day children will need to bring a sack lunch; a water bottle and a beach towel. 

We need adults to help with Music, Crafts, Games and Lego time.  The curriculum will be on the poster with a sign up sheet. Please sign up to help if you can.

Farmer's Market - September 2
St. Paul’s is the featured non-profit at the Clarence Hollow Farmers Market on Saturday September 2.  We will be handing out our church tote bags, as well as flyers on Sunday School and some resources for prayer and Bible Study at home. 

This year we will also be inviting people to the community carnival to celebrate our 75th anniversary.

This is a great chance to get our name out in the Clarence community and meet some of our neighbors.  We need a few workers.  The Farmers Market is from 8 – 12.  We need two or three people to help staff the table.  The sign up sheet will be in the Parish Hall in August.

Carnival - September 10
On Sunday September 10 we will kick off our 75th year celebration with a community carnival.  There will be hotdogs, popcorn, cotton candy and bounce house and games for us and for our neighbors.

The 10 am service will be something special.  Wear your shorts or jeans and t-shirts and come prepared for birthday surprises.

The carnival will be held from 11 – 2.

We need some help. 

We need people to be grill masters, work the popcorn and cotton candy machines, serve lemonade, run the carnival games & give out prizes, paint faces and set up and clean up.

The sign up sheet is in the parish hall.  Please sign up to help or email Liz Brauza-Hughes at and ask her to sign you up.

Road Rally - September 30
The Third, not quite annual, St. Paul’s Road Rally will be Saturday September 30.

The way that our road rally works is – we gather at Church at 2 pm.  Bring a dish for a post-rally pot-luck.

We will assign cars and give you your envelopes with clues to the next stops.  Follow the directions, find the clues.  The clues will lead you back to the secret ending location where we will have food, drink and recap our adventures.

Bring your friends, your sense of adventure, your sense of direction, your sense of humor and your cell phone (we will make sure there is at least one of all of the above in each car).

Sign up sheet is in the parish hall so we have a sense of how many cars we are looking at.

Pet Blessing - October 1
The Pet Blessing will be Sunday October 1 at 2 p.m. – in the front yard if the weather is good – in the parish hall if it’s not.  Bring your pets, your stuffed pets and/or pictures of your pet.  Blessings available for all. 

We are collecting pet food for the Pet Food Pantry at Ascension Church in Buffalo – there is a particular need for cat food – please bring something for less fortunate pets.

There will be treats for you and for your pet.  Come and celebrate the love that our animals bring into our lives.
