Sunday School End of Year Celebration Is Sunday, May 23
Sunday School ends its year on May 23. Kids will enjoy an art project, Bible review games, snacks & prizes. Thank you to all the families who have brought their children to Sunday School. It has been a blessing to offer Sunday School this year, and we are thankful for the families who support the program. Thank you to the teachers who volunteered their time. We had an amazing group of teachers and substitute teachers this year…., Tiffany List, Kathy Lustila, Kayla Schlicker, Caleb & Mary Schultz, Jaynee Gassman, Rosalinn Hardy, and Katie Helmreich. Thank you also, to Valerie Matyas, who leads our High School Bible Study. We wouldn’t have a successful Sunday School without these dedicated teachers and helpers.
CEF Stamp Program News and Information
It’s hard to believe that our last school day for Church Extension Savings Stamps will be on Monday, May 24th beginning at 7:30 a.m. You can plan on us being back when school begins anew in the fall.

Congratulations to the students and staff of St. Paul who participated in the CEF Savings Stamps Program during the current school year. You set a record of over $100 a week for nine weeks, in addition to a record of over $2000 in savings for the year. That’s fantastic! It shows a real commitment to the stamp program, as well as your personal savings planning.
Remember, that when you buy CEF Saving Stamps, you help build churches and schools for others, including helping our St. Paul Ministry Center with funding.

I will be sending the savings books home with each student on Monday. I will also provide envelopes for you to use in sending the savings books to CEF in Ann Arbor for depositing in your individual savings account.

If you have any questions or are interested in getting information on enrolling in the stamp program, stop by the gym and see me Monday morning. Or you can call me any time at 989-798-3156.

Thank you for making this another great year for St. Paul and the CEF Stamps Savings Program. Also, special thanks to Shasta Duffey for stepping in and helping out when I was unable to be available.
