Announcements

If you have noticed someone missing from our congregation, please contact them by phone or visit them in person. You may be their “angel”


October and November are Progressive Supper months.
This event is where friends, family, acquaintances and those new to St. Paul’s can join together for a meal. And, what a meal! Agree on who will be in your group, what the date will be, what each person will prepare, and where you will progress. It can be from room to room in one house or building, or from home to home for each course of the meal. You decide based on who is in your group. The idea is to enjoy a wonderful meal together and get to know others better outside of church. If you have questions, ask me, James Proudfoot or Rev Gord or others who have taken part in the past. HAVE FUN!


St. Paul's BEEF DINNER will be held Sunday, Nov. 16, 2014. Please contact Martha Dawson, 780) 532-6675 or Carla at the church office, 780)532-2415 if you have potatoes, carrots, or turnips to donate. We can make arrangements to pick up or they can be left at the church closer to the date. Marge Riley will be contacting people for donations of pies, salads, buns etc and to fill the many tasks that need willing hands! Watch the bulletin for updates.


St. Joseph's Parish Refugee Committee is in immediate need of accommodation - one bedroom, basement, or bachelor suite for a refugee family of a single mother and 10 year old son from Iraq. Contact Martha at 780 532 6675 for further information or suggestions.


The Worship Committee is interested in offering an Alternative Worship service once a month. This would be a chance to experiment with different styles of worship. We would like to start these in January. If you have an idea of something you have always wanted to try, or to see in worship please join us to talk about the idea. All interested folk are asked to talk to Gord or to a member of the Worship Committee so we can set up a meeting.


St. Paul’s has had a Face book group for about 3 years now. But now we have a Facebook page as well! Groups are good for discussion but pages are a better way of using Facebook for publicity. Come and “Like” the page at https://www.facebook.com/stpaulsunitedgp

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.
