Children’s Chapel will start again on September 7th.
If you are interested in volunteering for this, then please
tell John Womack. The format for this is straight forward.
During Children’s Chapel, the children learn and take
part in a service that reflects the first part of our service
up to the peace, but it is on their level. They light the
candles, write their own prayers and hear a Bible story.
The leader of Children’s Chapel will then tell a children’s
sermon based on the Bible story. A love for teaching children
about the love of God is the only skill required. The Diocese
does require those who work with children to take a 2 hour
course called Saving God’s Children. Mr. Womack is
trained in teaching this class.
Episcopal Church Women (ECW)
Our next meeting will be on Monday the 8th at 6:30pm in
the Parish Hall; Dinner will be provided.
All women in the church are a part of this organization;
you are already a part of our group. We meet the first Monday
of each month at 7 p.m., most of the time in homes. Because
of Labor Day this month, we start off on the second Monday.
We hope you will join us for food and fellowship September
8th. If you have any questions please contact Paula Womack
or Billye Kidwell.
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 6:30-6:45 p.m. Everyone is welcome,
including your friends who may not attend St. Paul’s.
4th 10:00 a.m.St. Paul’s annual “Blessing
of Pets and Animals”.
All of God’s Creatures are Welcome 10:00 a.m. Saturday
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.’
Christian Formation, AKA Christian Education
This is a life long process which involves a process of
growing in our relationship with Christ, self, others and
the creation we live and work in. Through study, prayer,
contemplation and sharing with others we learn how to live
and share our faith both within our Christian community
and the secular world. In addition to our Sunday worship
and fellowship, we have Tuesday noonday prayer and Wednesday
Evening Prayer and Bible study; what else would you like
to do for Christian Formation? If you have some ideas or
questions about this, please contact Jon Kidwell. We could
also try some type of on line activity, either in real time
or as comments and replies.
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.
