National Day of Prayer…will be observed here at St. Paul’s on Thursday, May 3rd. The church will be open to all in the community for personal prayer and meditation from 7:00am to 7:00pm. All are invited to close the day with a service of Prayer, Scripture and Music at 7:00pm. We would love to have church family members volunteer to serve as hosts that day, welcoming people to the church, directing them around the building, etc.  Information and a sign-up sheet for one hour blocks of time to host is on the table in the narthex.  Please consider being a part of this day of prayer across our nation, as either a host or participant. Please see Denise Yoreo, Cheryl Lowman, or Pastor Mongeau for more information or to volunteer.

<<<Vacation Bible School at St. Paul’s! >>>  

Monday, July 9th – Friday, July 13th ~ 9am – 11:45am

At VBS this year, strap on your life jacket and get ready to be swept away by God’s promises in Jesus on this rip-roaring river ride with Splash Canyon: God’s Promise on Life’s Wild Ride. Come along as we sing fun songs, do crazy crafts, eat yummy snacks, play awesome games, and more! Registration for participants and volunteers is at www.StPaulsNewHartford.org.

>>>ALTAR GUILD…is in need of volunteers to care for the Lord’s altar by setting up Holy Communion before worship and cleaning the communion ware after worship.  Training is provided.  Please contact Cynthia Boyle or Sally Wabrek if you are interested in serving.

PASTOR MANOR ON VACATION….I will be away from Sunday, April 15th through Wednesday, May 2nd as Deaconess and I are blessed to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary that is coming in June.  I am grateful to Pastor Mongeau for leading all the worship services and Bible studies while I am away, and to the Church Council for granting me this time away.  If you are in need of pastoral care during my vacation time, please contact Pastor Mongeau at 860-480-5357.  You can also contact the church office at 860-379-3172, or Elder Travis Lowman at 860-806-1285 and they will assist you.  In Christ, Pastor Manor

PHOTO WALL UPDATES…What a blessing it is to look at the photo wall in the narthex and get to know your brothers and sisters in Christ by name!  But some of you may look a little different now, or perhaps you’ve added to your family.  We’re looking for someone to lead the charge of updating our photo wall with current pictures.  This would include encouraging members to submit photos or to have them taken here at church for us to print, labeling those photos, and positing them on the photo wall.  If you are interested in serving in this way, contact Pastor Manor.

HAVE YOU EVER needed to inquire about a household repair problem or decision and wondered if someone in our church family could give you advice or a needed service?  Have you ever wondered if someone at St. Paul’s is a carpenter, babysitter, notary, lawyer, welder, cleaning person, caterer, etc…?   Stewardship Board would like to establish an OCCUPATIONS BULLETIN BOARD displaying business cards, flyers or typed information regarding our members who are self-employed or business owners.  Please leave your cards, flyers, printed information in Janice’s office and we will arrange the new bulletin board once collected.  This is one more way to connect with our church family and, if needed, ask advice or hire for needed services they provide.  Thank you, Stewardship Board

IF YOU gave a donation to Altar Guild for an Easter flower please take it home today.
