Greetings from St. Paul United Church of Christ, the “Church on the Corner” in Navarre, Ohio! We are the oldest continuing congregation in Stark County, serving the needs of our members, neighbors, friends, and community for over 200 years. We have been a Lutheran Church, a German Reformed Church, and Evangelical & Reformed Church, and since 1957, we have been the United Church of Christ. But through all the changes, we have worshipped continuously as God’s faithful congregation in Navarre. We welcome you to our Church to worship and fellowship with us. Our doors are open to EVERYONE who wishes to worship God through the presence of Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit. “God is Still Speaking” in our midst, and we are still a faith community in progress, with a great ecumenical spirit. Come and join us in “Our Little Corner” of Ohio. There is always a place for YOU!

In light of the recent increase in Covid-19 cases in our area, which resulted in the threat level in Stark County being elevated to Level 4 (Purple) under Ohio’s Public Health Advisory Alert System today, Church Council has decided that we will suspend all in-person worship and church activities until further notice.
We believe this is the best way to ensure the health and well-being of our members and friends, and the community of which we are a part. We will be reassessing the situation with respect to worship and other activities going forward and will keep you informed about new developments and changing plans.
In the meantime, we will continue to stream our worship service via Facebook on Sunday mornings. Links to these services will be provided under the “Videos” tab on our church website at www.stpauluccnavarre.org for those who do not have access to Facebook.
Council had previously voted (at its November meeting) not to conduct in-person Christmas Eve worship services, but rather to hold a single service exclusively on Facebook (with a link to the service on the church website). We will, of course, let you know about the details for this service in the next couple of weeks.
If you have questions and concerns, you can reach the office by phone at 330-879-5836 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. For everyone’s safety and well-being, we ask that you refrain from coming into the office for the time being.
