Thank you for your continued support.

Easter Celebration -- April 5 @ 10:00 while we normally have communion on the first Sunday of the month the Worship Committee decided that the Easter Sunday service was likely to be very full as it was.  SO our Easter Season Communion this year will be at the Maundy Thursday Potluck/Worship.  All are welcome!!!

Major changes are proposed for how the United Church does its work.  How will they impact our life as a congregation?  What might the church look like across the country?  See the insert United in God’s Work in this bulletin for more details and join us on April 11 from 9-12 to discuss these proposals.  This way we can send feedback to Presbytery at their meeting on April 25.

ATTENTION ALL HOUSEHOLDS

Have you joined St. Paul’s Recyclable program yet?

 

St. Paul’s has embarked on an easy fund raiser to help with the Church renovations. All you need to do is bag up all your empty bottles, cans and milk jugs and put our church id # 1468-2415 visible on each bag and drop them off at the bottle depot on Resources Road.

If 10 people donate $10.00 worth of recyclables that will put $100.00 into St. Paul’s account! If 100 people donated $10.00 a month that will put $1000 into our account. It’s just that easy! Thank you for your support.
