Supply Pastor:  Our guest Pastor for the month of November will be Reverend Bernie Dougherty.  He is a retired minister from Stow.  We look forward to having Pastor Bernie lead us in worship.

All Saints Book of Remembrance:  Each year at All Saints, we remember those members of our congregation who have died over the past year.  We have also made it a practice to inscribe their names in a Book of Remembrance.  Our Book of Remembrance is fashioned after the words of the prophet Malachi (chapter 3, verse 16):  “Then those who revered the Lord spoke with one another.  The Lord took note and listened, and a Book of Remembrance was written before Him of those who revered the Lord and thought on His name.”  Before worship begins, all worshippers are invited to write in our book the names of family members, friends, neighbors, and loved ones who have passed since All Saints Day last year, from November 3, 2019, to November 1, 2020.  Our Book of Remembrance will be made available at worship each Sunday from November 1 through 15, 2020, on a table before the altar.  Each Sunday, names written that week will be read. 

Grand-families:  Grand-families meets on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month in the Parlor.  We will meet Saturday, November 28, at 10:30 am.

Work Day:  On Saturday, November 28 there will be a Work Day at the church.  The purpose of this work day will be to clean and decorate the sanctuary for Advent and install a garbage disposal in the kitchen.  We will start at 9:00 am and hope to be done around noon.  I would like to thank Brenda and Bill Hart, Bonnie Thompson, Judy Dodge, Amy Martin, Jim Kuzman, Ron Wireman, and Marty Maurice for their help in cleaning windows in October.  Thank you for your support.  Tim Martin

Food Outreach:  St. Paul Church is reaching out to old and new friends with a fresh meal and food care packages that are delivered once a month.  We are thankful for the response from you.  Keep filling the basket and we will keep delivering as needed.  The following suggested items are always appreciated.  cereal, soup and crackers, canned meats, canned fruits, boxed potatoes and stuffing, gravy, canned sweet potatoes, corn, green beans, peanut butter and jelly, and cookies.  Monetary donations can be made to the church with FOOD OUTREACH on the memo line.  This is a Thrivent Financial Action Team project.  For more information, please contact Bonnie Thompson at 330-272-1400, Debbie Illencik at 234-308-1626 or Grace Shiau at 330-505-8175.
