HELP JOIN THE EFFORT AND SPREAD THE WORD!
Our volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization and
the pillars of our community. We simply wouldn't be able
to serve people in the capacity that we do without them.
From counselors, spiritual leaders and receptionists, to
organizers, event planners and pantry aids, we welcome anyone
with a willingness to help others. One-on-one training is
available and for only 4 hours a week, you can help make
a difference. If you are interested in volunteering, please
contact us today.

in our community; by helping them see their potential, value
and worth, helping them pull themselves up in times of hardship,
and teaching them to be good stewards of the resources God
provides for them.

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 7:00 p.m. on the third Tuesday of each
month. Meetings are open to all members of St. Paul’s.
