WEDNESDAY MORNING BIBLE CLASS – How old were you when you last took catechism class? How many years have gone by since then? Think of how your perspective on life has changed, and all the questions that have come up since then. On Wednesday mornings at 10:00am, Pastor McKenney will lead a review of catechism class. There is NO memory work, quizzes or tests. All are welcomed and invited. The class is held in the school library.

LITTLE SPROUTSA friendly reminder that Little Sprouts playgroup meets every 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month from 9:30-10:30am @ St. Paul’s school. For all little ones ages 0-5 and their caregivers. Please join us and bring a friend – Everyone is welcome! Summertime Little Sprouts are the same days, times and place as during the school year.


WORSHIP ENCOURAGEMENT – The Board of Elders is seeking friendly members for a Worship Encouragement Committee. It would consist of 8-20 members who would meet regularly and focus only on encouraging members who are not coming to worship. A general goal would be to contact members who were not at worship for the month by email, text, phone call, letter, or a home visit. The goal is to be encouragers for one another. “Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another…” (Hebrews 10:25) Please sign up on the list at the communication center or talk with pastor.

ST. PAUL’S WISH LIST – Our leadership is putting together a wish list for anyone who wishes to donate funds or purchase a gift for our school and church. Projects already on our list include: new desktop computer for church secretary, new DVD/BluRay players for our shut ins, a new playground at school for preschool ages, donations to our Early Childhood Fund, donations to new landscaping for school in spring, and donations and gifts for our school lunch program. If you have and questions or suggestions, please talk with a pastor.
