OCTOBER IS CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP MONTH
Our Food Pantry needs your help. We are once again asking our parishioners to bring food to church every Sunday, and we're going to try something new. Each month we will ask for donations of a particular nutritious food that we offer to our clients. Chicken noodle soup is one of the most requested foods we offer. So each Sunday in October, please bring a can or two or three of chicken noodle soup.
November will be tuna fish month, and in December we'll collect donations of canned beef stew.
Please don't forget to bring chicken noodle soup next Sunday and for the next three Sundays after that. The basket will be back in the narthex and will be brought to the altar for blessing.
Consecration Sunday: November 11th
We will complete our pledges in church and take them to the altar to be blessed. Remember only one service at 10:00am that day. We want everyone to be present and to enjoy a catered lunch following the service. It's only 4 weeks away. Pray about your pledge. Ask for God's guidance as you decide how much to give to St. Paul's. Give thanks for your blessings.
RSVP for this Saturday!
Sundae Sunday Open House
: Sunday October 28th 2:00 - 5:00 p.m.
WHAT IS IT?
Sundae Sunday is St. Paul opening its door to our neighbors in this community. We will have pizza and soft drinks, a scavenger hunt for kids in the church, crafts, church tours for adults and of course ice cream!
WHAT WE NEED:
We need helping hands!!! We need to people to greet our neighbors, "floaters" to help fill in where needed (in the Parish Hall, in the church, in the parlor)! We also need help in giving our visitors basic tours of our church building.
The event goes from 2:00pm - 5:00pm and you can help for all, or part, and we really want to put our best face forward!
HOW CAN YOU SIGN UP?
Sign up on the sign up sheets in the Narthex or at Coffee hour
Put your name, time available, phone and email in my mailbox (A4) in the parlor.
I hope you will help us show our neighborhood what makes St. Paul's a special place!
