OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD SHOEBOX COLLECTION is well underway.  Our goal is 100 boxes.  If you are packing a shoebox for a girl, please stop by the table located in the upper fellowship room and pick up a fabric tote bag (hand made by the women of St. Paul’s) to place in your shoebox.  Reminder:  Monetary donations are due Sunday, October 13th.  

Checks should be made out to “St. Paul’s Lutheran Church” with a designation to Samaritan’s Purse on the memo line.  The Mission Board members will use these donations to purchase items that the Sunday school students will pack on October 20th.  The last day for you to bring your shoebox in is October 27th.  Travis or Emily Poudin will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

DAUGHTERS OF FAITH will be having their first meeting on November 2nd from 2:00 – 3:30pm. We’ll begin a study on the Fruit of the Spirit along with prayer and fellowship and enjoy snacks and beverages too.  Please invite a friend to join us.

LCMS DISTRICT PRESIDENTS meeting at St. Paul’s…..Every year on a bi-annual basis, the Presidents of the East Coast Districts of the LCMS gather for a time of study, fellowship, and sharing of ideas. These seven District Presidents and a few special guests will be meeting at St. Paul’s on Wednesday and Thursday this week. We’re thankful for the opportunity to have these special guests on our campus!

A/V WORSHIP ASSISTANCE …Each Sunday we are blessed to be able to project our worship services for people to follow along. We currently have a very small core of people that operate the computers to serve the church family in this way. If you are interested in learning how to do this simple, but important task during worship, we’d love to train you and have you serve! Assistance is especially needed for the 9:45 am service. Adults and Youth are invited to learn. Please contact Pastor Manor or Dave Yoreo if you have any questions or are interested in being trained.

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 as an individual, a couple, or a family.
