LITITZ PROJECT - It’s time to collectively serve our town again! St. Paul and other Lititz area churches will again be participating in the Lititz Project. We are looking for volunteers to help with yard work and minor home repairs. Last year we had three work teams - Please look for the sign-up sheets in the narthex and donate some time to help your neighbors.
A NEW BEGINNING has been offered to our congregation with the selection of the Rev. Robert Myallis as our new pastor. The Archives Committee reminds us of some of the many other "new beginnings" that St. Paul has had in the past with photos and articles of pastors called to serve St. Paul over the past half century. You are invited to relive those moments at the archives showcase in the narthex.
WELCA BOOK CLUB: will meet on April 7th in the lounge. The selection is Nadia Bolz-Weber’s Accidental Saints: Finding God in All the Wrong People. The June 2nd selection is Graeme Simsion's The Rosie Project.
MENTORING OPPORTUNITY: The Mission Committee is looking to form a mentoring team to support a woman in the Bridge of Hope program. We are looking for 5 or 6 caring individuals to provide emotional and social support for a woman as she works towards financial stability to maintain her housing. Time commitment includes getting together about once a month as a group and other times by calling, texting, or inviting her to do something with you. No financial support is required by mentors. Training is provided to the group of mentors with ongoing staff support. Contact Barb Paynter at 626-4709 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. If you can be a friend, YOU can be a mentor for a mother and her child.
LABELS FOR EDUCATION: The Labels for Education® program will be coming to a close. Campbell’s has shared that due to declined interest, it will be winding down at the conclusion of this school year. I will collect until May 20th. I will do a final submission of labels at the end of May, which is double points month! Thank you for your support! Jenn Maryniak
THE SPRING CONGREGATIONAL MEETING will be held April 24, 2016, as an open meeting after both the 8:00 and 10:45 AM services. The congregation will vote to approve new Council Members, the Annual Report, and an amendment to the Endowment and Finance Charters. In addition, members for the 2017 Nominating Committee will be elected.
MIDDLE & HIGH SCHOOL BREAKFAST: All 7-12th graders are invited for breakfast on Thursday, April 7 at 7am in the Social Hall. The teens enjoyed our Holy Week Breakfast so much that they requested that we do this monthly! So, mark your calendars for the 1st Thursday of each month when we will fill their bellies with breakfast and their hearts with God's Word before they head across the street to school. Friends are welcome!
