The Vicar’s Voice
It is with thankful hearts that we greet the month of November. This is the month that we focus on all the blessings of our lives. We are thankful for our families, friends and our worshiping community. I am thankful for the hours and hours of time given for our 40th Annual Pancake Breakfast. We served 303 breakfasts that included dining in, carry out and delivery. We made $3321 which includes the craft and bake sale. The people I spoke with were so thrilled to be here. I received an email that said, “My husband and I want to Thank You for the great pancake breakfast. To have it delivered was a real blessing. What a great outreach.” I received a text that said, “I thought the pancakes were exceptionally good today.” We also were blessed to serve many who were able to dine with us because of the wheelchair lift. Someone said to me the cost of the lift was worth every penny because of the joy those who needed it experienced in being part the fellowship and hospitality of the day. I am thankful for the willingness of St. Paul’s to work together to serve one another and our neighbors. In His Mercy, Mother Michele+
UTO Ingathering - November 11 & 18
Forty years ago when St. Paul’s was struck by lightning we received a grant from UTO to help with rebuilding our church. United Thank Offering is a way that each one of us can thank God for how he continues to bless us each & everyday. When we develop an attitude of gratitude we see God more in our daily lives. The little Blue Boxes in our homes offer us a way to thank God each day the same way that he blesses us or maybe on a special occasion. A past parishioner put a coin in the box every morning to thank God for bringing her safely through another night. What do you thank God for?
Family Game Night - November 17
On Saturday night, November 17, the youth of our parish invite everyone to their first Family Game Night from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. in the fellowship hall. A light supper will be served, prepared by the youth. Everyone is welcome to come and play cards and board games. You can also bring your favorite games to share.
