St. Paul’s, Sidney, will be celebrating 150 years of Episcopal services, and is a small but active parish. Isaiah 58:10 reminds us “if you offer yourself to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted one, then your light will shine in the darkness, and your night will be like noonday.” St. Paul’s community-based missions include a weekly feeding program, which serves hot lunches to area residents. St. Paul’s also offers a free clothing program for those in need, and a handmade sleeping bag ministry, which provides not only sleeping bags, but clothing and toiletries to homeless persons in the surrounding communities. All of these ministry programs are long-established and provided entirely through the ongoing efforts of dedicated volunteers and financial contributors.
