Annual Parish Meeting is Sunday, November 23

shield 01The selection of vestry members is one of the most important decisions a parish makes. Your vestry is charged with overseeing the life and mission of St. Paul’s. Faithful and capable leadership is essential. The Nominating Committee’s choice of parishioners to succeed the four out-going vestry members (Brant Smith, Donna Tolson, Bob Wilcox, Peggy Williams) is Dick Fogg, Cass Morris, Lee Owen and John Thornton. These individuals were thoughtfully and prayerfully chosen from a list of names received from members of the parish. The Committee believes this is an excellent slate with many different gifts. We are grateful these individuals have agreed to serve.

 Please plan to attend the annual parish meeting on November 23th at 9:30 a.m. in the Parish Hall.

The Christmas Pantry: Helping Our Neighbors in Need

cardinal_cornerOur Christmas Pantry is coming soon! This December, as part of our monthly Outreach Food Pantry, we will be providing food boxes with supplies for Christmas dinner to our pantry families. In addition, we will deliver food boxes to area shut-ins.

Please sign up to pick up food boxes at Kroger Rio Hill and bring them back to St. Paul’s. You can also volunteer to help pantry families load food boxes into their cars or deliver food to our elderly neighbors in need. Our Christmas Pantry will take place on Wednesday, December 17. Volunteer sign-up sheets and information will be available in the Parish Hall beginning Sunday, November 30 or you can click here to sign up right now. Questions? Contact Debbie Weaver.

Are you eager to help but don’t have time to give? Your monetary contribution will help make this work possible. All contributions enthusiastically received! Please note “outreach holiday food” on your check or when giving online. And thank you!
