This Sunday at Saint Paul's

Your Weekly E-pistle for Sunday 20 January 2019

The Office of Morning Prayer is said each Sunday from 8:00-8:30am in the Chapel. All are welcome.

Thank you to the Outreach Commission for hosting Coffee Hour on Sunday; next week, the Parish Life Commission will provide edibles for our Annual Meeting.

Hands to Service

Groveland and Joyce Uptown Food Shelves joyfully receive Saint Paul’s weekly donations. According to news outlets, furloughed federal workers are now utilizing these resources as well. January’s theme is PERSONAL CARE PRODUCTS (razors, baby shampoo, soap, deodorant, etc.) Please bring items to church as part of your weekly offering, and place in baskets in the Narthex.

The Winter Goods Drive, the first donation campaign for 2019 by Downtown Congregations to End Homelessness (DCEH), is a collection for warm winter outerwear to support our neighbors experiencing homelessness. Now through the end of February you can bring new/gently-used winter items such as hats, gloves, scarves, and coats to Saint Paul’s; look for a bin in the narthex/lobby. Thank you so much for your support!

Upcoming Events and General Announcements

Food Shelves

TAKE THE FOOD SHELF CHALLENGE!  For the month of January, consider bringing at least one item to place in the food shelf basket in the Narthex; in February, the challenge is two items; March is three items, etc. Hunger never ends for some. Let’s take the challenge together to do our part and keep those food shelves full.

Sparks of Hope… Grace

This is one of those weeks that upon first reading, the Gospel can scare us away…not a very inviting image of being Jesus’ follower. I would hate to be a 1st time listener and try to make sense of this today. It really doesn’t give us a good feeling of hope does it?...
