Children's Chapel Information

**** 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 19th.

We will not be meeting during the summer; the next meeting will be the second Monday in September.

Wednesday Activities for July and August
Due to the number of people who will be gone in June, we will not have Evening Prayer or Bible study in June. We will meet towards the end of June to talk about July and August activities.

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

We will be collecting for Camp New Hope in June
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.

Coffee Hour
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.
