News & Information August 2015
FALL KICK OFF
is almost over and both students and teachers are making
plans for school, which will begin in just a few weeks.
Just as they are preparing for a new year so are we here
at St. Paul’s. It has been almost 4 years since the
congregation was certified as having completed the required
program SAFEGUARDING GOD’S CHILDREN. This is required
training for all persons, clergy and lay, for working and
being with the young people of the church. We ALL MUST BE
RECERTIFIED. The class will be offered on Wednesday, AUGUST
12TH and AUGUST 19TH . For your convenience the class will
be held 2 times on each of those days. There will be an
afternoon class at 1:30 p.m. and another at 6:30 p.m. Each
class will last approximately 3 hours, which includes the
watching of a video and a question and answer period. The
time will depend upon the number of questions asked. There
will SIGN-UP SHEETS for each session in the Parish Hall.
Please sign up as soon as possible. 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.
