The BIG Picture
...at St. Paul's

Announcements

Please join us in the Guild Hall after the Service on Sunday to celebrate with Ed and Carol Sutek and their family as they celebrate their 60th Wedding Anniversary with us!
 
As we approach a new year, it is time to nominate new members to the Vestry. We have three members completing their terms, leaving openings for three new members. This year, we are using a self-nominating process. Therefore, if you have an interest in being part of a hard working Vestry during a period of transition, please make your desire known to either Father Smuda or Teresa Dixon. This is an exciting time for St. Paul’s Episcopal Church with real opportunity to grow our congregation both spiritually an in numbers. Please consider nominating yourself. If you would like to nominate another member of the parish, please ensure they are aware and
agree with your nomination.
