Our featured donation for the month of October will be cans of "meal soups".   Product donations can be dropped off at the church.  If you prefer to make a monetary donation and want to get credit for it on your contribution statement, please make the check out to St. Paul Lutheran Church and mark in the memo that it is for the Food Shelf.  We will deposit the check into our Food Shelf line item and write one larger check to cover the donations to the Food Shelf on a regular basis. 

Volunteers are being sought for PowerPoint creators and clickers. Peter Conery has offered to train people to learn how to create the worship PowerPoints. Please contact him at 763.607.0599 to schedule a training time.

A Simpson House thank you to Dollis, Jan, Mugs, Paula, Robyn S. and Adele for making the apple crisp on Saturday morning. Char F., Ron, Dorie, Keith, Mugs, Paula, Sue, Millie, and Adele for helping prepare and serve the meal at the Simpson House Shelter in Minneapolis on Sunday, October 15.  Thanks to Char F., Mugs, Keith, and Adele for driving.  We served about 130 people.  They were very appreciative and we received many thanks for our supper which included meatball stew, cole slaw, apple crisp, buns, and beverages.  It takes many hands as you can see to do the work.  This meal was funded by Thrivent Action Teams and the Social Concerns budget.  The Social Concerns committee appreciates all the great help you people did to serve this meal at the Simpson House Shelter.

You don’t have to make a firm commitment right now, as things can change between now and April.  I would just like to get some idea of how many might be interested in being a part of the trip.  There will be more information and at least one meeting of the mission trip participants as the date gets closer.   Thank you!  Carol

NOT A CHURCH SPONSORED VOLUNTEER ACTIVITY, BUT SOMETHING RELATED TO HABITAT FOR HUMANITY AND IT COULD BE A VOLUNTEER PROJECT!

ReStore Outlet Benefits Habitat for Humanity

Are you thinking of adding a workbench to your garage, need a sofa for a college student’s room, have a need for a special light fixture, looking for a one of a kind window for the cabin?  If you answered yes to any of these questions, I would encourage you to pay a visit to the Habitat for Humanity ReStore, a Home Improvement Outlet.  Reasonable priced items are available for purchase and donations of items are also accepted from individuals and companies.

This Outlet is located on Co Rd D one block off of 35W in New Brighton.  My visit was out of curiosity to see what is available and learn how it is operated for the benefit of Habitat for Humanity.  If you have items, new or used, that are in good condition left from a building or remodeling project these items are acceptable for donation.  Volunteers donate their time to sort and organize all the donations.  It is neatly organized by type of object so if you need electrical for example that is all in one place.  There are many new items in their original package.  Among items available were sofas, chairs, lamps, sinks, bathtubs, doors, windows, boxes and boxes of tile, lumber, entire sets of kitchen cabinets, just to name a few.

All proceeds are for the benefit of Habitat for Humanity in the Twin Cities.  Check out their website, retore.tchabitat.org.  If you didn’t find anything you needed, you maybe need to look again.

Funeral Lunch Volunteers

Would you be willing to help with funeral lunches?  The funeral lunch crews need more helpers.  If you are able to be a volunteer for funeral lunches, please add your name to the sign-up sheet in the Gathering Area or call the church office.  You don't have to help with every funeral.  If you can only work weekends or specific days of the week, indicate that on the sign-up sheet.  There are more details on the sign-up sheet.  Thank you for prayerfully considering this opportunity to serve. 

A warm handshake and smile goes a long way during this winter season!  Please check the Greeters sign-up sheet located in the green 3-ring binder located in the Gathering Area and see if you could fill an open spot.  All it takes is 15 minutes before services and a friendly personality!
