Children's Chapel Information

No Children’s Chapel for June, July and August. It will resume in September

**** August is Favorite Hymn Month ****

Remember to fill out the index card with hymn # and name and place in the basket in the narthex. Requests will be accepted through after church on Sunday July 20th.

Proposed St. Paul’s By-Law changes will be available for your perusal in the Parish Hall. There will be a Special Parish Meeting called in early fall for their approval.

Based upon sufficient interest there will be a “yard sale” in the Church parking lot the morning of July 19th. There will be a $20.00 “booth” rental for a 10’ X 10’ space. If you wish to rent a table it will be an additional $5.00. It is open to all church members and their friends or others in the community, so spread the word. AT THE CONCLUSION OF THE SALE ALL ITEMS NOT SOLD MUST BE REMOVED FROM THE PARKING LOT- -BY THE INDIVIDUAL WHO BROUGHT IT!!! NO EXCEPTIONS.

ECW: We will not be meeting during the summer; the next meeting will be the second Monday in September. See Paula Womack if you have any questions. All women of our congregation are members of ECW.

Come and Sing with Us:
On the first Tuesday of the month (July 2, this month) at 7:00 p.m. is going to be a monthly favorite hymn night. We will be singing songs that are hopefully familiar and easy to sing. For now the songs will come from the 1982 hymnal, the Lift Every Voice and Sing II hymnal and Wonder Love and Praise. This will be just an evening of good ole singing for about an hour. Hope you can join us. Bring a Friend or two.

We will continue to collect for Camp New Hope through the first Sunday July
We need your change; we will once again have a container to put in your loose change to donate to support the mission of Camp New Hope. Camp New Hope is a summer camp program that provides children who have a parent who is incarcerated with an opportunity to have some fun and be provided with some additional emotional support. It is a program worthy of our support.

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.
