THE GIVING TREE…Over the years here at St. Paul’s, we’ve had the joy of designating our sanctuary Christmas Tree to be a Giving Tree for church family members to contribute towards the needs of others. This year, the Board of Missions is asking for donations that will support the work of the Orphan Grain Train Branch as they help with disaster relief efforts in Florida, North Carolina, and Texas. The needed items are: Diapers (sizes Newborn, 1, 4, 5); Diaper rash ointment; New Blankets; Towels & washcloths; Coloring books & Crayons. If you prefer to make a financial donation that will be used by OGT to purchase supplies and cover transportation costs to send out supplies, you may give a check payable to “OGT New England Branch” (please do not address the check to St. Paul’s). Please bring your items, or your monetary donation in an envelope, and place them under/in the Giving Tree. We will be collecting items and monetary donations until Epiphany, January 6th. Any questions?  Please contact Denise Yoreo or Pastor Manor.

SAMARITAN’S PURSE OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD SHOEBOXES…..are on their way. I found out that the ones I registered on “track your box” went to Kenya and Malawi! Where did your box go?  Please let us know!  It will be fun to see how far St. Paul’s boxes have traveled.  Please continue to pray for the child who will open your box, and that they will be touched with the message of Jesus’ love.  Such joy to share the Gospel of Jesus in the world!  To God be praise!  Denise Yoreo, Mission Board Chairman

PLEASE CHECK your church mailbox.  

REMINDER:  please enjoy snacks and beverages in the coffee hour area and lower fellowship room.  Thank you, St. Paul’s Trustees
