Consider the gift of donating to our Flower Guild.  You can't help but notice how beautiful our flowers at St. Paul's are arranged.  This is done by the loving hands and artistic gifts of parishioners who make up the Flower Guild of St. Paul's.   
 
Following worship on Sunday, you are welcome to take the flowers with you or designate a person or persons to whom they should go, or simply designate that bouquets should be made and dispersed to delighted parishioners.  Help us by signing up today.

ST. PAUL'S BOOK GROUP 
WEDNESDAY, January 31st at 7:00 P.M.
IN THE RECTORY
 
                  
At the next book group we will discuss the New York Times bestseller,  The Paris Architect, by Charles Belfoure.

"A beautiful and elegant account of an ordinary man's unexpected and reluctant descent into heroism during the second world war." 
-Malcolm Gladwell
 
A thrilling debut novel of World War II Paris, from an author who's been called "an up and coming Ken Follett." (Booklist)

In 1942 Paris, gifted architect Lucien Bernard accepts a commission that will bring him a great deal of money - and maybe get him killed. But if he's clever enough, he'll avoid any trouble. All he has to do is design a secret hiding place for a wealthy Jewish man, a space so invisible that even the most determined German officer won't find it. He sorely needs the money, and outwitting the Nazis who have occupied his beloved city is a challenge he can't resist.

But when one of his hiding spaces fails horribly, and the problem of where to hide a Jew becomes terribly personal, Lucien can no longer ignore what's at stake. The Paris Architect asks us to consider what we owe each other, and just how far we'll go to make things right.
Written by an architect whose knowledge imbues every page, this story becomes more gripping with every soul hidden and every life saved.

Celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2018, sha la la Joseph you're doing fine! You and your dreamcoat ahead of your time!

Tickets are $15 per person and we can meet-up for an early dinner and discussion after the show.

We pray for those serving in our Armed Forces, especially Luke Heier, nephew of Barbara Millen, serving with the Special Forces.
 
We remember, O Lord, all those who have served in our Armed Forces and commend them to you for their bravery, their patriotism, and their honor. We ask that those who serve our country today may be kept in your everlasting love and that comfort and encouragement might be given to their families. We pray for peace and ask that your holy will might prevail among all people, and your name be exalted forever.
     
We pray for those who have died, especially Putty McDowell, who will be laid to rest tomorrow, January 13th; Pilar Poggio, friend of Barbara Millen and family, who died recently; and Alyssa Duncan, Ruth B. Duncan, and Lyman C. Duncan, in whose memory the altar flowers are given this Sunday.
 
We pray for peace in the war-torn region of Syria and for all who have lost homes and loved ones due to violence throughout the world.
 
We pray for our Bishops Alan Gates and Gayle Harris.

The Rev. Melanie McCarley
