May 27th - Announcements

SUMMER SCHEDULE  This weekend we begin the summer worship schedule.  The late service moves to 10:00 a.m. with the other services remaining the same:  8 a.m. on Sunday, 6:30 p.m. Saturdays and Mondays. This summer schedule continues through Labor Day weekend.

PARISH ED SURVEY  The goal of our Parish Ed board is to help you and your family keep growing in God’s Word. We organize things like our Sunday School, adult Bible studies, and our youth group. Many of our members have been asking if we could start more small group Bible studies, which we're looking into for this fall. To plan for all that, we're asking you to give your input in a survey we're distributing this week. You should have already received a link to the online survey if you're on our church email newsletter list. If you aren't able to fill out the survey online, there are paper copies available in the gathering area. 

SUMMER FAMILY BIBLE HOUR  On Sundays from 9:15-9:45am throughout the summer, we're excited to have "Family Bible Hour," beginning on Sunday, June 3rd. People of all ages - from families with little children to senior citizens - are invited to meet together in the half classroom. Our Family Bible Hours this summer will focus on "Christ in the Family". Each week, we'll pick up a different topic about growing families rooted in Jesus Christ. The course we’re using is written to be multi-generational, with kids, teens, parents, and grandparents all talking through family issues together.

ST. PAUL WORK DAY  Join us for a work day on Saturday, June 2nd from 8:00am - noon. Our tentative plans are to do some interior painting, wash the windows, clean up the flower gardens, and complete other small tasks to make our facility look great for the summer.

THE PICTURE DIRECTORY IS HERE!  Our 2018 church directory from LifeTouch has arrived! If you had your photo taken for the directory, you get a free copy. Pick yours up in the gathering area by finding the one with your name on it. If you didn't have your photo taken, there are directories available without pictures. You're welcome to take one of those. Or, stop by the church office sometime during the week to buy one for $5 from Terri Happel.
