French toast made from an old southern recipe; a casserole made of sausage, eggs, cheese, and mild chili peppers served with salsa; creamed chipped beef served over muffins; bagels with cream cheese and fresh fruit – all possibilities that might await you if you join us for breakfast at St. Paul’s! In addition to the obvious benefits of having breakfast served to you without your having to prepare, clean up or wash dishes, you might have time to sit down over a cup of coffee and catch up with someone you haven’t seen in a while. You do not have to be a chef to serve on a team (ongoing training is part of the plan) and the time commitment is for a short time, just once every six weeks.
We are a small but mighty group and manage to cover a wide variety of topics, from fiction to truth and reality, from sadness to joy, the environment – our world and what we are doing to make it better, current issues, theology, and what is the Sacred. It is a time to be in community with fellow Christians, to share our thoughts and beliefs in the sharing of what has been written by others. It is a place to increase our knowledge and strengthen our beliefs.
Monday, January 27th at 7 PM in the library.
For this meeting, the Book Club will be starting a study of THE OVERSTORY by Richard Powers. Written in 2018, it was rated one of the ten top books of the year and winner of the Pulitzer prize. It is a novel about trees and people. It is a story of characters from antebellum New York to the late twentieth century. Each character has his/her story which is intertwined to the world alongside side ours which is vast, slow, interconnected, resourceful, magnificently incentive and almost invisible to ours. Bill McKibben said, “It is a beautifully written story of the problems of our times – “It is a kind of breakthrough in the ways we think about and understand the world around us, at a moment that is desperately needed.” Due to the length and importance of the book, we will study it January and February, covering the chapters ROOTS through OLIVIA VANDERGRIFF this month. Sandi Detweiler will be facilitating the study. We will meet at 7:00 pm in the Library and all are welcome.
Golden Girls is a ministry designed to foster fellowship and community with our “Golden Ladies”. We have a monthly luncheon which meets the third Monday of the month at 12:30. Golden Girls provides an opportunity to touch base and commiserate over wine and fabulous food provided by our committee of dedicated volunteers.
Frizzled Hens is a group formed and designed to provide fellowship and support to Mothers with children aged 0-5 years. We have a monthly meeting the third Wednesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. The goal of the group is to form a foundation and network as Mothers face the trials and tribulations of raising very small children. The meeting provides an outlet for Mothers to get together and exchange information, perspective, and support. There is a monthly topic and discussion each meeting reflective of an aspect of parenthood.
The Prayer Chain is a way for all members to request prayers for their family or friends for a period of 30 days. Requests can be made by e-mail or phone. If you wish, we will also post these requests in our Sunday bulletin so all members can pray for those in need. If you would like to join the prayer chain, we welcome you.
Please contact Peggy LaGarde at 610-458- 7125 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our office volunteers are essential to the smooth running of the church’s office. Not only do these wonderful individuals accomplish the necessary tasks associated with the office administration, such as answering phones, making worship support reminder calls, organizing the Sunday School outreach, assembling the weekly bulletin, and other administrative tasks as needed, they proudly represent St. Paul’s to the public, both on the phone and in person. If you have a few hours that you would like to volunteer in our church office (on a regular basis or as needed), we welcome you!
