E-pistle for Friday 14 July 2017

Saint Paul's ChurchChurch News, E-PISTLE

This Sunday at Saint Paul’s:

Make one, wear one: Don’t forget to stop at the nametag kiosk as you enter and leave church. Greetings are much more memorable with names!

Thank you to the Finance/Administration Commission for hosting coffee hour. Next week: the Worship Commission.

Joyce Upton Food Shelf will be receiving Saint Paul’s weekly food donations, owing to renovations under way at Groveland. July’s theme is CEREAL, but other non-perishable items are always welcome. Please bring items to church and place them in the baskets at the Narthex doors. Reminder: Church attendance can be down in the summer, but the need for food never diminishes. Thank you!

Let's Get to Know Each Other

An invitation from Father Marcus

Beginning Thursday 20 July until the end of the year (maybe longer), I want to set aside intentional time each week for us to get to know one another. My office door (which is open most of the time anyway) will be intentionally open from 1:00-4:00pm for you to stop in, say hi, ask for prayer, or just to hang out. If you want to bring lunch, we can share! No agenda at all. I just want to facilitate the building of relationships. I hope you'll come see me. If you can't come in person, you can call the church (612-377-1273) and we can chat.

Hospitality 101: Hello, My Name Is…
If you’ve been to Sunday liturgies the past few weeks, you may have noticed the return of the name tag board; you might even say it has been “resurrected.” It has returned to help our new rector learn our names, and to create a more intentionally welcoming environment for people visiting our parish. If you haven’t already, please make a name tag when you next arrive at church, wear it during services and coffee hours, and then hang it under the initial of your last name so you can find it next week.

Choir Diary

No announcements from the bench this week! Happy Summer!

Prayer Calendar:

In the Anglican Cycle of Prayer, we pray for the Church in Ontario (Canada).

Upcoming Events and General Announcements:

An Adopt-a-Garden program is being proposed by the Buildings and Grounds Commission. They are seeking people, groups, or families willing to assist in keeping the gardens here at Saint Paul’s looking neat through the summer season. Interested? Please contact Gary Wegner, or call 763-360-2231.
Are you in the new online membership directory? And have you added your photo? It’s a great way for people (like a new rector) to learn your name! See Angie during coffee hour or email her with any questions.

Help beautify our sanctuary for worship

Give altar flowers to mark important occasions or significant events in your life. Write us a note or email, telling us your name, the date you wish to give flowers, and your desired dedication. Checks should be made out to Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church, with “altar flowers” in the memo; suggested donation is $50.
