ST. PAUL NEWS & EVENTS

FOOD OUTREACH:  Delivery of 20 hot meals continued June 18.  We delivered boxes of shelf-stable foods to several families in need.  Marty Maurice made at-home communion available for members at that time.  We are thankful for the response from you.  Our hope is to maintain the servant project, once a month, through the year, recognizing an essential need in the community and to keep communication with some of our members, too.  The following suggested items are always appreciated:  cereal, peanut butter, jelly, canned veggies, soup, pasta and sauce, and canned meats such as tuna, salmon, turkey, and chicken.  Delivery for July will be on July 23.  Monetary donations can be made to the church with FOOD OUTREACH on the memo line.  Questions or suggestions, please contact Bonnie, Debbie, or Grace.  

CELEBRATE GRAND-FAMILIES:  “Celebrate Grand-families” is a support group for grandparents raising their grandchildren.  St. Paul is reaching out to support these families with Christian compassion and a place to meet and discuss their needs.  While the grandparents meet, we will have crafts, games, bible stories, snacks, help with homework, tutoring, and a fun social time for children.  Sessions in July will be on Saturday, July 24, from 10:30 am to 12:00 pm.  Please contact Liz to help. 

RUMMAGE SALE UPDATE:  Plans are underway to hold a Rummage Sale on Saturday, August 7, with the proceeds to go toward the church’s general fund.  Many members have been spring cleaning and setting aside unwanted items – clothing, shoes, toys, books, linens, household goods, small furniture, and other miscellaneous items.  You may start to bring these items to the church after July 1 between 11:30 am and 2:30 pm Monday through Friday or on Sunday mornings.  These items should be taken to the choir room.  If you have any questions or need help bringing items to the church, please contact Bonnie or Brenda.

HOME COMMUNION:  Home communion packages will be available in the church office Monday through Friday 11:30 am to 2:30 pm.  The bread and wine were blessed during Sunday service.  Please call Lynn to make arrangements for pickup.  Marty is available for home delivery and is also able to serve communion if requested.
