Rector's Notes

During the month of August, we will be experimenting with a single bulletin for all Sunday liturgies.  Saturday 5 p.m. and both Sunday liturgies will use the same bulletin.  The liturgical leader will adjust for each service.   At the end of the month, we will assess the effectiveness of this strategy.

!!!!!!!!!We are in need of Coffee Hour Hosts!!!!!!
Please Let Allison know

We hope you will consider teaming up with another family or a friend to maintain our fellowship and gathering following the 10:30 a.m. service that has brought our parishioners together for years.

Hosting Coffee Hour is a fun and easy way to get to know other St. Paul's members! The host brings the food and the church provides the drinks. An example of what a host might bring would be: two large pans of brownies (cut very small), maybe a bowl of fruit (oftentimes grapes cut into small clusters), and a bowl or two of pretzels or popcorn. If you have questions or wish to co-host with another member, please contact  Alison.  Dates are available:

July 29:             Pat Rudy for Missionpalooza                                                                    Sunday
August 5:          Birthday Sunday with Cookies &                              Lemonade

Please submit e-pistle items to the Editor by 6:00 p.m. Wednesdays.  Please help out the Epistle editor and submit your items in a timely way. Thanks!
