This Pie Sunday at Saint Paul's

Your Weekly E-pistle for Sunday 18 November 2018

Join us for our second annual Pie Sunday at Coffee Hour and experience all things PIE: auction, pie-walk, tastings, etc. Bring a pie (or two!) for the auction, or buy a pie to share with loved ones on Thanksgiving. Proceeds will benefit Saint Paul’s General Fund.

Thank you to the Parish Life Commission for hosting Coffee Hour this week; next week, the Men’s Group.

November’s theme is grab-and-go snacks (granola bars, fruit snacks, nuts, etc.); they also have need of personal care products. Please bring items to church as part of your weekly offering, and place in the baskets in the Narthex.
