E-pistle for Sunday 08 July 2018

Saint Paul's ChurchChurch News, E-PISTLE

We welcome to the Lord's table as today's presider our own Reverend Peggy Schnack, one of the seven fresh new Priests ordained on Tuesday in the Episcopal Church in Minnesota.

This Sunday at Saint Paul’s:

Make our gardens grow! Summer is upon us, and the Building & Grounds Commission would welcome anyone interested in keeping the gardens at Saint Paul’s tidy. (A huge thank you to those who helped in the rain last week!) Direct questions about your favorite garden spot to these fine folks

Father Marcus’s Open Office hours in July are held at Common Roots Cafe. You are invited to join him Wednesdays from 10am-1pm for coffee and conversation. A more confidential meeting can be scheduled by calling the church, or using Calendly.

If you missed any of Father Marcus’s sermons (or wish to revisit one that spoke to you), you can find them on his Word Made FRESH podcast on your Apple device, or Pocketcasts on Android; print versions are accessible on his blog of the same name, and in the Sermons section of this website.

Groveland and Joyce Uptown Food Shelves joyfully receive Saint Paul’s weekly donations of personal care and non-perishable food. Please bring items to church as part of your weekly offering, and place in the baskets at the Narthex doors. Thank you!
