ECW News:
ECW is scheduled to meet in the home of Debbie Aungst on Dec 2rd at 7 p.m. Additional information and address will be provided.

ECW will once again be selling this year's crop of Georgia pecans. Pound packages of pieces will sell for $10 and halves will sell for $11; we will need everyone's help in buying and selling. As a reminder, ECW uses money we make to buy coffee, kitchen supplies and other things in support of St Paul's. Most recently we have paid for updates to the nursery. We expect the pecans to arrive before Thanksgiving to be available for holiday baking.

At the Annual Meeting on January 18th we will elect 2 vestry members to a 3 year term. Who is eligible for the vestry? A confirmed member in good standing. What does good standing mean? Someone who is regular in their attendance at worship and who invests their time, talent and treasure in furthering the ministry of St Paul's. A vestry person who has served one term may also be eligible for re-election.

Coffee Hour
Following worship service, we have a wonderful time of fellowship with our friends and a great opportunity to greet visitors.
A special thanks to all who make this happen by volunteering to serve as coffee hostess. There is a sign-up sheet in the parish hall every month giving you the opportunity to serve. Coffee is always served. The snack can be a slice of cake, cookies, sandwiches, chip and dip, crackers and cheese, etc—and recently root beer floats were a big hit. This was never intended to be an entire meal, just a snack; some wish to serve more and that is fine. That is their gift to you, so just say “thanks.” If you are not able to serve, you might consider buying coffee, creamer, sugar, small plates, cups, napkins etc.
Please join us each Sunday for this fellowship. If you have questions, feel free to ask one of the ECW officers: Paula, Bobbie, Joyce or Carol.

The vestry meets at 7:00 p.m. on the third Tuesday of each month. Meetings are open to all members of St. Paul’s.
