Fall Women’s Bible Study


Grace: More Than We Deserve, Greater Than We Imagine
by Max Lucado

 

Author Max Lucado says we’ve settled for a wimpy grace – a goldfish grace that sits in a bowl on the shelf and never causes trouble or demands a response.  Lucado challenges readers to not only receive grace, but also to be changed by grace.  Shaped by grace.  Strengthened by grace.  Emboldened by grace.  Softened by grace.

 

Dates:  Thursdays beginning September 12th through October 24th

Time:   1:30 – 2:30 p.m. in the Truthseekers Classroom in the

            Education Bldg.

Facilitated by:  Lois Shaw, Gerry Reinhardt, and Sue Owens

 

SIGN-UP BEGINS SUNDAY, AUGUST 4th – Sign-up sheets will be available in the Sunday school classes, in the Narthex before and after Worship, and in the church office.

 

Book cost is $7.00 and payment is due by the first class session

Care Giver Ministry looking for Volunteers


We have a committed group of men and women who meet each Monday morning at 9:00 a.m. to divide the altar flowers into bud vases and then deliver them to shut-ins, along with a bulletin from the Sunday worship service.  These visits mean so much to the shut-ins and are sometimes the only connection
they have to the church. 

Please contact Jack Vestuto or the church office if you are interested in helping with this important outreach ministry.

Water Bottle Ministry


Water Bottle Ministry
at Elm Creek Park

The Water Bottle Ministry at Elm Creek Park continues to be a success!! We are providing approximately 25 water bottles per day at the park. 

This year we anticipate providing around 1500 water bottles!

Darleen Allan and Leslie Russell do a great job of keeping the ice chests filled, but they could always use some help! 

NEXT labeling session will be this Thursday, August 15th,  at 2:00 pm in the Fellowship Hall

Thank you, St. Paul’s, for your support of this important ministry!
