WELCOME OUR NEW MDO DIRECTOR

RACHEL BUDKO

A note from Ms. Rachel

I feel very honored to introduce myself to you as the new Director of St. Paul’s MDO. I know everyone is anticipating the beginning of summer and hopefully looking forward our next school year as well. Like yourselves, I value St. Paul’s commitment to caring for your children every day.

I live in Columbia, IL with my husband Mike and our two children. In September, my daughter Alaina begins kindergarten. My son, Michael is 2 and he is a student in the purple room here at St. Paul’s MDO. I look forward to introducing my family to the many wonderful people that call this school “home” in the near future.

I went to college at Southern Illinois University Carbondale and have a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management. Shortly after college, I worked for Midwest Emergency Dept. Services, as the Director of Physician Recruitment for 13 years. After the birth of my daughter, my calling was to stay at home and to raise our family. In 2007, I started a non-profit organization called The P.E.G. Helpline to help those affected by domestic violence. I also volunteer in the 3-5 year old children’s room at my church, Christ United Methodist Church in Millstadt, IL.

I know that I have big shoes to fill with Ms. Jeana leaving, but I am honored to have been selected as the new Director. Enjoy your summer and I look forward to seeing you all in September. 

...

Join us on Sunday, May 26th at the 9 AM worship service, as we say good-bye to Ms. Jeana and welcome to Ms. Rachel.

There will be a cake and punch reception in the activities center following the service and an opportunity to spend time with both special ladies.

Outreach

Driven

GO OUTSIDE THE WALLS AND SERVE

Greetings, we are excited to bring you some updates on our outreach projects. Without your support none of this would be possible. Thank you again for allowing us to serve others.


Local & Regional

We lovingly support our St. Paul Senior Community, Ecumenical Community Food Pantry, Franklin Neighborhood Association, Hoyleton services for children and Emmaus Homes for the developmentally challenged. We also support our conference DuBois Center and church-related Eden Theological Seminary.  


Nation & World

As a congregation within the United Church of Christ, we gladly support our denomination and national ministries, plus a variety of world missions through Our Church’s Wider Mission and the One Great Hour of Sharing.



Our Core Values

01)

WE BELIEVE ALL PEOPLE MATTER TO GOD and are welcome here.

God, the designer and crafter of all, created all humanity in God's own image thus making us siblings in the family of life.

02)

WE STRIVE TO BE SERVANTS in service to others.

God, the redeeming Christ, calls us to love one another as he has loved us.

03)

WE NEED CHRISTIAN EDUCATION for good faith and life.

God, the eternal spirit, nurtures us continually toward the realization of God's vision of heaven on earth.


Our Ministries

Care & Compassion

“They shall know we are Christians by our love.” We follow Jesus’ commandment to “love each other” from birth to death and blessed memory. We support baptism at any age along with staying With You through illness or in times of special need. Our With You ministry provides visitation and chore services in coordination with our pastors, who visit and officiate at weddings and funerals.

 

Education

“The more we know, the better it gets.” St. Paul has a historic commitment to education for all…and all ages! Children as young as two years old are served by our Mothers’ Day Out preschool. Our children and youth opportunities include crafts, classes and camping experiences plus Confirmation and music programs. Adult education is founded on the Forum, our after-worship enrichment hour that offers a variety of faith-supportive topics.

Music

It’s been said that “Music is the voice of God.” We experience this in harmony with our B Street Band and Chancel Choir in addition to our Glory Ringers. We inspire our neighboring community with our Fine Arts series and long-time partnership with the Masterworks Chorale. There’s something for all ages since “God is still speaking” through our ministries of music! Click the links below for more information on our Music Ministry.
