A community project of the Youth of St. Paul Lutheran Church is the Toy Garage Sale. Children up to fourth grade can come and shop for Christmas gifts for their families. The gifts range in price from twenty-five cents to two dollars. The Youth of St. Paul assists the children with their shopping and then wrap the gifts for them. As the children wait, there is a crafts table where each child can make a Christmas ornament. The congregation is involved by donating items or money to the Youth to provide the gifts for the children to buy.
