Gentle Worship Service at St. Paul United Event Details

Close
1:30 pm

On Sunday, February 8, at 1:30 p.m. the Wapakoneta Area Ministerial Association will continue its monthly Gentle Worship Service at St. Paul United Church of Christ, Wapakoneta. The interdenominational program is designed for children, teens, and adults—and their families and caregivers—who are affected by autism spectrum disorders, sensory processing disorders, and/or any other developmental or physical disabilities that can make attending a traditional service challenging (for example, because of vocalizations or pacing).
Gentle Worship is not intended to replace one’s home church, but to allow extraordinary families to worship together comfortably. The Ministerial Association researched models for Gentle Worship used in other communities across the country. The service is 1/2 hour in length, features subdued lighting and sound, familiar hymns, and an abbreviated sermon. Families and caregivers are also welcome to bring sensory items. The service format will be consistent from month to month, and a rotation of Wapakoneta ministers will preside. Father Pat Sloneker of the Petersburg Parishes will lead the February 8 service.

Gentle Worship will be offered on the 2nd Sunday of every month at 1:30 p.m. at St. Paul which is located at Perry and Mechanic Streets in Wapakoneta (catercornered from the Auglaize County Courthouse). Those who attend the Gentle Worship service may use any of the church entrances; access for persons using wheelchairs or who for any reason prefer a ramp to steps is available off the Main Street (north) courtyard to the building. Those with questions may contact St. Paul Church at 419/738-2215. All are welcome.

Scanning day for historic photographs Event Details

Close
10:00 am5:00 pm

In conjunction with the "Our Downtown: The Way It Was" initiative, the Auglaize County Historical Society will host its first scanning day for historic photographs on Friday, February 20, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the St. Marys Community Public Library. Local residents are invited to bring any images of commercial buildings/downtowns anywhere in Auglaize County from the 1970s or earlier, and they will be archivally scanned.

Our Downtown: The Way It Was is a new effort of the historical society's to document the appearance of commercial buildings in Auglaize County through the decades, developing a file for as many individual structures as possible.

Austin Poyar, an AmeriCorps representative from the Ohio History Connection, will scan the photographs at the St. Marys Library. Another scanning day will be held in Wapakoneta in March.

States Historical Society administrator Rachel Barber, “Numerous building owners have become interested in returning their commercial structures to a more authentic appearance. We hope to give them the tools needed by providing as many historic images and as much information as we can locate.”

Barber emphasizes that Our Downtown is more than a way to enhance the Historical Society's archives. “We want to be a community partner and want to continue to enhance the quality of life for Auglaize County residents. We believe that Our Downtown: The Way It Was is an important step in that goal.”

Pillowcase Dress Sew-a-thon Event Details

Close
9:00 am

Area residents are invited to participate in a Pillowcase Dress Sew-a-thon, to be held on Saturday, February 28, 9 a.m., at St. Lawrence Church Hall, Rhine (east of Botkins, on Botkins Road). The event is sponsored by the Social Justice Commission of the Petersburg Parishes of Botkins Immaculate Conception, Fryburg St. John, Wapakoneta St. Joseph, and Rhine St. Lawrence churches.
The Sew-a-thon is the first sponsored by the Social Justice Commission this year, although three were presented in 2014. States Commission representative Rachel Barber, "The first Sew-a-thons were so successful and the participants had such a great time that they wanted to know right away when we'd organize another session." Dresses from the previous sew-a-thon have already been distributed in Haiti and in Tanzania.
Area seamstresses are invited to bring their sewing machines for a fun morning of making simple dresses and boys' shorts to send abroad with Christian missionaries to children who may never have received new clothing before. Those who can’t sew are still welcome to cut out fabric and help in other ways. Lunch will be provided to participants.
Those attending are also welcome to bring remnants and new or very gently used pillowcases (all or mostly cotton, please), as well as buttons, ribbon, and any notions that might be used to “trim” the clothing. Those with questions, should call Rachel Barber at 419/738-4924 or Patty Mack at 937/693-3163.
