Please call Phyllis Frankhouser at 626-4200 by August 15 to register. Living Beyond Yourself: Exploring the Fruit of The Spirit by Beth Moore is a 10 week study of the fruit of The Holy Spirit as presented in the book of Galatians. Beth walks through each trait and encourages women to know the freedom of a Spirit-filled life. Participants will look at the supernatural aspects of the fruit and that you cannot grow, learn, or produce the fruit on your own. Beth challenges you to develop the fruit by maintaining an intimate relationship with the Spirit of God. A Spirit-filled life truly results in living beyond yourself.
ST. PAUL WOMEN OF THE ELCA will be participating in the synodical ingathering at the yearly LSS WELCA convention on Aug. 16 in Hanover, PA. We are collecting gift cards (Giant, Weis & Walmart) and items for the Gettysburg Seminary Food Pantry. Aprox. 40 seminary households utilize the food pantry on a regular basis. Seminary education is a significant financial investment. The Food Pantry ministry helps to ease this burden by providing essential items for individuals and their families. Contributions may be placed in the box in the narthex until August 10th. Gift cards may be given to Phyllis Frankhouser, or dropped off at the church office. Items needed: hot & cold cereal, canned vegetables, macaroni, granola bars, sugar, flour, peanut butter, spaghetti, sauce, baking mixes, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, paper products including: paper plates, cups, napkins, toilet paper, paper towels, and diapers (any size). No expired items, please.

Please contact Lori at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the church office at 626-4709 in you would be interested in volunteering.
MEN’S BIBLE STUDY & breakfast will be held at Zion Lutheran (Manheim) on Sat., Aug 9th at 7 a.m. Please use the parking lot at the rear of the church and look for signs as to where to enter. All men are invited to take part in this time of studying God's word, socializing and a great breakfast.
WQRSHIP IN THE PARK, AUGUST 24 at 10 a.m. We will NOT have services at St. Paul, but we will gather with the other Lutheran churches for a joint, outdoor service at beautiful Lititz Springs Park. Picnic will follow, with hot dogs & drinks provided. Sign up in the narthex and bring a covered dish or dessert to share.
WELCA BOOK CLUB meets August 7 at 7:00 PM in the lounge. The selection is Zealot: the Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth by Reza Aslan. Aslan's Zealot is perhaps not the Jesus you thought you knew and his history is probably not the same history you learned in Sunday school, but he balances the Jesus of the Gospels against the historical sources and presents a well-researched picture of the "most consequential life ever lived." Everyone is welcome to join us for a thoughtful discussion of the life and times of Jesus of Nazareth.
