St. Paul’s UCC

47 S. WHI­TEOAK ST., KUTZ­TOWN Reach­ing Out and Touch­ing Hearts and Souls will be held at St. Paul’s UCC of Kutz­town Oct. 8 at 2 p.m. We join to­gether with fam­ily, friends, and com­mu­nity in the re­newal of the spirit of love, stew­ard­ship, fel­low­ship, and faith. Join us on Ded­i­ca­tion Sun­day, at which time we will be ded­i­cat­ing new gifts to our church, among them will be The Sharadin Lounge which dis­plays the in­spir­ing paint­ing by artist Henry Sharadin. An im­pres­sive 13’-2” x 8’-6” mu­ral ti­tled Let The Chil­dren Come To Me has been re­stored by Prop­erty Com­mit­tee mem­bers and other church vol­un­teers and friends, and pre­served by artist Jonathan Bond of Kemp­ton. Sharadin’s art­work rep­re­sents not only a last­ing emo­tional mem­ory for many of us at St. Paul’s, but is also one of our unique his­tor­i­cal as­sets and a sig­nif­i­cant part of our cul­tural her­itage.

Pro­fes­sor Henry W. Sharadin was an art pro­fes­sor at Kutz­town Univer­sity for many years, 20 of them as de­part­ment chair­man. He was a kind and gen­tle man, re­li­gious, sen­si­tive, sen­ti­men­tal and con­sid­er­ate. A great teacher, Pop Sharadin, as he was af­fec­tion­ately called by his stu­dents among them­selves, de­vel­oped the art ed­u­ca­tion pro­gram in the early 1920s, which be­came highly re­garded and brought recog­ni­tion to the school. Sharadin Arts build­ing is named in his honor. A prominent cre­ator of his­tor­i­cal paint­ings, Sharadin stud­ied in Rome, Eng­land and Paris.

Sharadin was an in­te­gral and es­sen­tial mem­ber of our church, who en­gaged be­cause of his gen­uine care and com­mit­ment to his beloved St. Paul’s, as he re­ferred to our church. Not only did he de­sign our Church School build­ing in 1913, he served in the con­sis­tory, and as adult Bi­ble-class teacher for more than 30 years. He had been a del­e­gate to the Gen­eral Synod and Le­high Synod of the former Evan­gel­i­cal & Re­formed church for many years, and in 1953 re­ceived a special ci­ta­tion from the Le­high Synod for his out­stand­ing church work.

In recog­ni­tion of the il­lus­tri­ous cre­ator of our pre­cious and his­tor­i­cal Sharadin mu­ral and ded­i­ca­tion of The Sharadin Lounge, and with grate­ful hearts for the many gifts made pos­si­ble by our mem­bers’ col­lec­tive ef­forts, we in­vite our com­mu­nity to join with us as we con­tinue to main­tain an un­bro­ken golden chain of events in the his­tory of St. Paul’s UCC, Kutz­town.
