Join EfM: It is almost time to enroll in EfM which begins in the fall. EfM is short for Education for Ministry, a four-year program of study and formation designed to better equip Christians for answering their call to service. It is not preparation for ordained ministry, but over the course of four years, participants read and study the Old and New Testaments, Church History, and Theology. EfM meets weekly during the academic year for worship, discussion, and spiritual reflections. The St. Paul’s group is entering its fourth year and had nine members last year. The size of our group is limited to 12 people, so we have room for three more if all nine return. Please let Fr. Jim know if you are interested or talk to any member of our group (Brenda Bittle, Virginia Wray, Cathy McDonald, Kaye Starling, Laura Hance, Sandy Barnett, Ellen Massey, Kay Forrest, & Cameron Gillespie) if you want to know more about EfM.
Yoga at St. Paul’s: Yoga on Monday evenings will be taking a pause for the remainder of the summer; it will resume in the fall. Future updates will be noted here.
