ST. PAUL’S FALL KICK OFF will be on Sunday, September
13. After worship there will be a covered dish luncheon
in the parish hall. The meat will be provided by the church
and you are requested to bring your favorite side dishes.
It will be a time of fellowship and the PLEDGING OF TALENTS.
The Pledging of Talents is the opportunity for each of us
to participate in the various ministries of St. Paul’s,
both within the church and in the world. This would include
such things as Altar Guild, serving as Crucifer, Lay Readers,
LEMs, Ushers, Acolytes, teachers of Christian education,
Lay Eucharstic Visitors, helping in the church office, ECW,
and others. (you will hear more about each of these in next
month’s Epistle) There will also be some new out-reach
ministries presented on that day. Each of us have talents
that can be used to build up the kingdom of God and this
will be an opportunity to exercise those gifts.
Church Women (ECW)
Plans will be announced at a later date.
St. Paul’s Wednesday Program of Evening Prayer and
Bible Study will begin again.
Evening Prayer will begin in the chapel at 6:00 p.m. Bible
Study will be held in the library following Evening Prayer
and conclude between 7:30-7:45 p.m. Everyone is welcome,
including your friends who may not attend St. Paul’s.
Paul’s annual “Blessing of Pets and Animals”.
All of God’s Creatures are Welcome. Time to be announced
for Sunday October 4th.
Francis introduced the idea that we humans are only one
part of God’s creation.
‘The moral progress of a nation and its greatness
should be judged by the way it treats its animals.’
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.

set them to Friends only. (Jon Kidwell)
