News & Information April 2020
As of March 13th, 2020
afternoon Bishop Ed closed all churches of our diocese through
the last Sunday of Lent. The closing is effective immediately.
That means we will not have worship services
Sunday. All church gatherings including Lenten study group are
While we are not able to meet together to worship, you may still
offer your pledges and other gifts by sending them by U.S. Mail
service to 721 N. Thomas St. Altus, OK 73521. If you are not
able to or desire not to get out of your home, I will be happy
to drive by your home and pick it up. I only ask you hand it
out the door; I will not come in. If you are getting out and
would like, you may put it in an envelope and put it in St.
Paul's mail box by West end door.
Stay safe and continue to pray for each other
and our Nation, State and City.

Vestry Meeting April 28th at
6:30 pm WILL NOT BE A FACE TO FACE MEETING
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,
Joyce or Carol.
The vestry meets at 6:30 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of each
month. Meetings are open to all members of St. Paul’s.
Please visit our Facebook site and become a Fan.
If you are a Facebook user with your own page you may want to
check your privacy settings. I recommend you set them to Friends
only. (Jon Kidwell)
