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.
Ministry of Hospitality
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.
Our next ZOOM Book Club will be on Monday, July 27 at 7:00 pm.
Many thanks to Miranda for leading our discussion of the book YEAR OF WONDERS. It took us back to the history of difficult times in the 1600’s in dealing with a plague giving much insight on how the individuals struggled to survive.
Our next meeting will be on July 27th at 7:00 P.M. We have chosen THE BOOK OF LONGING by Sue Monk Kidd. The book was published in April of this year and is a novel taking place during the life of Jesus as told by Ana, the wife of Jesus ben Joseph of Nazareth. Looks to be a good read! Joanne F. will be leading the study.
We also decided on THE TIME OF OUR SINGING by Richard Powers for September. This is the story of a German Jewish e’migre’ scientist who meets and falls in love with a young Philadelphia Negro studying to be a singer at Marian Anderson’s epochal concert on the Washington Mall on Easter Day in 1939. It is a bit long—but we have two months to read it! We’ve read THE OVERSTORY by Powers and had some great discussions. Having started THE TIME OF OUR SINGING I think this will also be one to remember.
Please contact Pastor Maxine for a copy of the book, and to let her know if you will be attending.
We will most probably be zooming once again in July. Wishing all a safe and blessed Summer.
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!
