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, Joyce or Carol.

MONTHLY VESTRY MEETINGS
The vestry meets at 7:00 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of each month. Meetings are open to all members of St. Paul’s.
