The poinsettias are being ordered. This year there will
be two sizes. The small plants are $6.00 and the large are
$11.00. If you would like to help with the cost and dedicate
a plant in memory or thanksgiving of someone, please fill
out one of the order forms found in the narthex and place
it along with your check in the alms basin.
The December meeting will be on the 2nd at 7:00 p.m. in
the home of Paula Womack.
FALL IN GATHERING
The St. Paul’s FALL IN GATHERING will take place on
Sunday, December 8, 2013. This date was chosen so that we
would have Mother Kat in attendance to offer the gifts at
the altar. We ask that you read the stewardship letter you
have received and give prayerful consideration to your pledge
of time, talent, and treasure for the coming year. Bring
your pledges with you on the morning of December 8th to
offer at the altar.
Please keep in mind that it certainly is not
a requirement to bring your pledge forward on the 8th if
you prefer not to. You may place it in the alms basin on
any Sunday, mail it back to the church, give it to the pledge
clerk, Iva Nell Templer or Sr. Warden, David Braddock, or
even turn it in to the church office. Whichever way you
choose to handle your pledge card is appropriate. Please
mark the ministries you are currently doing and new ones
you are planning to start.
HANGING OF THE GREENS/
The hanging of the greens is scheduled for Sunday, December
22nd immediately after the 10:30 service. This year the
Wassail Party will follow the 4:00 Christmas Concert. Please
plan to stay after church to help us decorate.
Christmas Eve Reception and Set-Up
St. Paul’s Church traditional Christmas Eve Reception
will be held again this year immediately following the 10:30

to bring their favorite finger foods to share with the parish
family and our Christmas guests. All goodies from finger
