Hands to Service

Groveland and Joyce Uptown Food Shelves joyfully receive Saint Paul’s weekly donations. Our theme for June will be BBQ/picnic accompaniments (chips, baked beans, brownie mix, etc). Please bring items to church as part of your weekly offering, and place in baskets in the Narthex.

Food Shelf Challenge – bring SIX items during the sixth month!

Saint Paul’s and The Bridge for Youth are working together this summer to manage a small garden in their backyard. So far, we have done a major clean-up and planted some veggies. We are working with a youth coordinator to plan the summer, including additional plantings and a sculpture contest. If you’d like to join us, please contact Prisca Cushman.

Upcoming Events and General Announcements

23 JUNE: March in the 2019 PRIDE Parade with the ECMN contingent! A bus will leave Saint Mark’s parking lot at 9:30am lo to take marchers to the lineup (reservation required). More information and ride reservations can be found on Saint Mark’s website.

7 JULY: Saint Paul’s Summer Book Club meets for brunch after the liturgy to discuss their first selection of the season: Inspired, by Rachel Held Evans. Want to join in? Contact Father Marcus to put your name on the roster, then pick up the book and dive in!

Have you taken a Faith Formation class at Saint Paul’s? Never taken one, but have ideas or needs? Please take a moment to fill out this anonymous survey and help us create interesting, helpful, and innovative class offerings. Paper copies of the survey can be found in the Parish House.

Consider a donation of flowers to enhance the beauty of the liturgy this summer – remember loved ones, a special occasion, or offer a special prayer request. You may select a specific date from 16 June through 30 October, and your memorial will be printed in the weekly digital E-pistle and Sunday bulletin announcements. Suggested donation for two vases of flowers is $45. Please talk to Kathy Kullberg of your request, then remit payment with a check made out to Saint Paul’s, noting Altar Guild flowers and the date.

Two of our tenants have outgrown their rental spaces in the Beim House, and will be moving elsewhere at the end of June. If you know of any non-profit organizations in need of space, please contact Junior Warden Beth Carlson.

Saint Paul’s Author Forum: Are you or someone you know a creator of written word? Read here about the formation of an Author Forum.

The Episcopal House of Prayer in the City invites all to join for their weekly Contemplative Prayer Practice each Monday at 6:30pm in the Auxiliary Classroom. Whether you are looking for a way to revitalize your prayer life or just searching for space and quiet, pray-ers of all abilities are welcome. If you are new and would like an orientation, feel free to come at 6:00pm.
