Upcoming Events & News

Discretionary Fund: On the first Sunday of each month the loose plate offering is for the Rector’s Discretionary Fund. This fund is used to provide assistance to individuals and families in need and to support organizations and causes that make a difference in our community. 

Children’s Church: In place of Sunday School we are now having Children's Church. It begins at 10:30, so take your children to the Sunday School area on your way to church for music and lessons before communion. Our children will then join us at the peace for communion.

Little Free Library: The Episcopal Church Women (ECW) are requesting children’s books for our free library in front of Anglican Hall. You may drop off your donation in the office during business hours or on Sunday and leave in the Sacristy to be picked up on Monday. 

Vestry Update: It was reported that pledges are a bit behind what was budgeted through August and what was received through this time last year. Expenses are also below budget but not enough to offset the decreased income. The building next door to the church is for sale and the owners have offered it to St. Paul’s. The vestry decided to explore the possibility of purchasing it, then leasing it until the time when the church might need the land or space.

Blessing of the Animals: We will celebrate the Feast of St. Francis with a pet blessing on October 3rd @ 2pm. Please gather in front of the Parish Hall. If you wish to make a contribution to the Humane Society we will be collecting bags of dry cat or dog food.

Prayer Request Tree: The Episcopal Church Women have set up an area on the side of the Anglican Hall pathway where anyone can write a prayer request and hang it up to be read. There will be a blessing of this Tree on October 3rd after the Blessing of the Animals at 2pm.

Halloween Candy: Main Street is making plans for a scaled back Halloween that will reduce the amount of exposure time. We are looking for bags of individually wrapped candy. if you care to donate, please drop off bags in the Narthex or in the office with Tymina (between 8 am & noon, M-Th). If you would like to help pass out candy, please contact the office

We Need Your Help: We are looking for volunteers who would be willing to help with broadcasting our 10:30 am service on Sunday mornings. We are hoping to find 4-6 volunteers so that each person is needed once a month or less. Whether you are tech savvy or simply willing to learn, we can teach you what you need to know to broadcast our services over Zoom and Facebook Live. Please contact Fr. Jim or Tymina if you are willing to get involved in this ministry.
