Changes to Services/Coffee Hour Due to COVID  We currently have members who have confirmed cases or suspected cases of COVID and others who are in quarantine due to exposure.  In light of this, and in order to keep everyone safe, we have made the decision to suspend coffee hour until further notice.  We will also be requiring masks and social distancing for the services.   Please note:  Even though we are not having coffee hour, you are still welcome to socialize after the service as long as you wear a mask and social distance. 

Annual Meeting January 30  The annual meeting will be held following the 11:00 a.m. service on Sunday, January 30.  Please plan to attend this very important meeting, which will include an update on St. Paul’s finances, plans for the future, and election of the next Vestry.  This will be an in-person event. 

Worship Leaders/Acolytes Needed  Did you know that Worship Leaders enjoy special benefits?  They have the best seat in the church (with its own fan in the summer), an inside look and preview of what each week’s service will entail, and most important, have an intimate and important role in the celebration of the Holy Eucharist.  St. Paul’s is looking for more people to take part in this rewarding vocation – training will be provided.  If you are interested, please see Mary or a vestry member.

Bulletin Help Needed  St. Paul’s is looking for someone to help prepare the weekly bulletin that is handed out at the services each week.  This work can be done remotely and involves updating the readings, hymns, and announcements that go in the bulletin.  If you are interested in this important ministry, please see a vestry member.
