Please Note: After 10:30 a.m. during Sunday worship

If you are visiting with us, we hope you enjoy your stay!
Welcome to Worship at St. Paul's. May you experience the enlivening presence of God as you gather with God's family to celebrate God's amazing grace.
Friends, help enrich our worship experience by signing up to assist with refreshments after worship. Guidance and help are available if you are uncertain of the how to's. There is a sign up sheet on the information table.
With the approach of winter, leaving the spaces on Lot Street for those with mobility challenges is even more critical. (Also looks better for visitors). So plan to arrive a couple of minutes early and use other parking spaces. (At 10:25 a.m. take any space available). Thanks.

"Spring Cleaning" in the Library - and we'd LOVE to share some books with you, permanently. During this month, watch for books out on the rolling cart that are no longer needed on our shelves. They have a pink heart on them - if you want to toss a coin in the jar, that would be nice - but not necessary.
In and Out of Africa!
On March 6, 2015 Lauren will be travelling across the world to Tanzania with Tumaini Children's Foundation! I will be working in an orphanage: teaching swimming lessons and helping the children prepare for final exams! I am planning several fundraising opportunities for St. Paul's to take part in such as a Date Night Daycare event, this Friday (see bulletin board) and a donation based coffee hour [Feb.15].
On Feb.15 & 22 you can support this mission by using the 'Other' slot on your offering envelopes. Mark Orphanage. Gifts over $10.00 will be receipted.
I wanted to say "Asante" (Thank you) in advance for how supportive you, as a congregation, always are and can't wait to come back with lots of amazing stories to tell! All money raised will be used to support the orphanage.
Tumaini Children's Foundation
Gifts marked 'orphanage' in the other space will be receipted and given to support the orphanage Lauren Fulton will be working in next month. Information brochures are in the library.
