THE CHRISTIAN SERVICE BOX collection for June is the ELCA Malaria Campaign. It is easy to become discouraged in the face of such reality. The number of people contracting the disease and number of deaths are discouraging. It is easy to turn away, to say there is nothing we can do; to grow numb. Your gift this month will help support the ELCA Malaria Campaign.
BLANKET MAKING sessions will be held on these Saturday mornings this summer: July 9 & August 13 from 9 a.m. - noon. These are in addition to the last Wednesday each month.
BOOK CLUB: The next meeting is Thursday, August 4, at 7 p.m. in the church lounge. The book is, “Three Cups of Tea”. The leader for the discussion is Gayle Stauffer. All women of St. Paul are invited.
