This Sunday at Saint Paul's

Your Weekly E-pistle for Sunday 2 September 2018

Welcome home – we’re glad to see you this Sunday morning!! Please join us for a special Coffee Hour, hosted by the Parish Life Commission; next week, the Finance & Administration Commission.

Volunteer gatherings Sunday include the Pastoral Care Team and the Stewardship Committee, both meeting after Coffee Hour at 12:00 noon.

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

Upcoming Events and General Announcements

Our next volunteer opportunity at Open Arms is 15 September at 10:00 am. Join the Outreach Commission and help cook and package food for people living with chronic illness. It’s a lot of fun, and no experience is necessary! Please sign-up on the bulletin board outside the Rector’s office.

All newcomers are invited to attend our Fall Newcomer Social on Thursday, 27 September at 6:00pm. You can find more information by visiting any of our Information Centers (underneath the announcement monitors at church) or by contacting our Rector

Painting Project Progress: Thank you for your generosity thus far! Our goal is to finish fundraising by 16 September. You can mail or drop off your contribution to Saint Paul’s, with “Painting Project” in the memo. If you have any questions, please see Jennica Date or Jacob Manier. Thanks again!

Gift Cards for God: Bring your unused gift cards to the church over the next few week and help us listen to our neighbors. The New Vision Committee is ready to send out our community survey to our neighbors, and your gift cards will help entice our neighbors to provide feedback. Any gift card will do, so long as it can be used locally or online.

Grow your faith and sign up for The Path, Youth Confirmation, The Apostle Paul Class, and more! Sign-up sheets for Faith Formation classes can be found at any information center around the church (underneath the announcement monitors).

Meetings of Saint Paul’s Vestry are open to all who wish to attend. The next meeting will be Monday, 17 September at 7:00pm in the Thurston Conference Room. Minutes of past meetings will be on our website soon; until that time, you can find a reference copy of all approved minutes in a box across form the Rector’s office or by contacting the Clerk of the Vestry, Jeff Gosnell.

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 at Saint Mark’s Cathedral. 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 6:00 pm. More details and directions are here.
