Senior Sunday
Sunday, May 21, 11:00 service

"Senior Sunday" is May 21. Graduating high school seniors of the parish play a special role in this annual service to mark their passage toward adulthood and their departure from the regular life of the parish. 

Parents of graduating high school seniors:  
Please contact the parish office
 as soon as possible if your son or daughter is interested in being included in this service. It is our tradition to highlight our seniors in the bulletin and at the Peace on this Sunday. Please return the Senior Recognition Form and a digital photo to mailbox@saintpauls.org no later than Friday May 14.

Parents of College Graduates
As we celebrate our graduating high school seniors we'd like to invite our college graduates back to the parish to join us in celebration of their graduation and to add our prayers as they begin their next journey.  Please email the parish office with your child's name, university, degree, honors so that we may include them in the bulletin, and let us know if they are able to join us on Senior Sunday so that we may welcome them home at the Peace.

ALL Parishioners
On Senior Sunday we will collect an offering for EYCS.  Episcopal Youth & Children's Services is a unique organization in the Diocese of Georgia  that provides need-based college scholarships for undergraduates and financial assistance for children who might otherwise not be able to go to Summer Camp at Honey Creek, the Episcopal Camp & Conference Center of the Diocese of Georgia.  To date, the EYCS Trust has provided over $1,000,000 in college scholarships for over a thousand youth of the diocese, and in just the past few years, has given over $40,000 to allow hundreds of children the chance to attend summer camp. Several Saint Paul's youth have been recipients of this scholarship.  To make a donation, please make your checks payable to Saint Paul's and note your gift to EYCS.  
Looking Ahead 
CALLING THE CURIOUS: If you are curious about how to faithfully engage questions about the Bible, our history and traditions, and our ever-changing understanding of God, then you are invited to learn about and consider participating in the Episcopal Church's Education for Ministry program, affectionately known as EfM. EfM is a program of small-group study and spiritual growth open to ALL people. Saint Paul's EfM leaders, Suzanne Pursley-Crotteau and Fr. John Jenkins welcome your inquiries.
Annual Parish Picnic 
Sunday, June 4, following the 11 AM service
 
Wear Red and join us for the Annual Parish Picnic on Pentecost Sunday following the 11:00 AM service in the River Room.

Bring a covered dish to share to the River Room kitchen.  Be sure to place your name on your serving piece and make arrangements to pick it up following the picnic. 

Email Anita Tanner, Hospitality Chair, with questions, or to sign up for set up or clean up teams or call  (706) 993-5720.
