From the bulletin Jan. 25, 2015

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.

Coffee +++
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.

Parking Protocol
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.

Church Family Celebration
Saturday, January 31, from 4 - 9:00 p.m. Everyone is invited to come for games/cards/activities and a "planned" pot-luck supper. This will be a great opportunity to play with your church family (all ages) and share a meal. We will be "playing" before and after supper (5:30 p.m.) And you are invited to come for all of the party or just part of it. It is important that you sign-up on the table in the library. You can bring friends too!

The Thistle Club Challenge
The Thistle Club is making a donation of $500.00 to Presbyterian World Service and Development to support our church's work with partners overseas and Canadians to make positive changes in our global village. PWS and D has a wide variety of programs that work to help communities overcome poverty, recover from emergency situations and provide new futures of hope for vulnerable people. Often their projects are matched by the Canadian Government and always the overhead is extremely low. Next Sunday, February 1 is PWS and D Sunday. Let's see if the congregation can match the generosity of the Thistle Club!

Jambo St. Paul's! Lauren here! On March 6, 2015, I 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 the church to take part in such as a Date Night Daycare event and a donation based coffee hour. 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!
