Grab a cup of coffee, tea or a glass of water and either join us for discussion in Adult Forum or just sit and visit in the Gathering Area while you enjoy some treats. 

 

Thank you to the Worship committee for providing snacks during the month of June.  The Women's Unit will be providing snacks during July and the Business Management and Stewardship committee will be providing snacks during August.

Thank you to Mugs, Ed and Pam, Char and Mark for driving to the Simpson Housing Shelter along with Robyn S., Dorie, Susan and her friends, Phyllis and Gary for serving the supper on Saturday, June 2. These people did an outstanding service with the limited amount of people helping at the shelter. We served a picnic supper which included hamburgers with all the trimmings, potato salad, cole slaw, strawberry shortcake and beverages. Thanks Jennifer P., Millie, and Adele for making all the cakes and grilling 260 hamburgers. We served approximately 100 people. They were very appreciative and we received many thanks from the shelter’s guests. It takes many hands as you can see to do the work. This meal was funded by Adele’s Thrivent Action Teams Grant and the Social Concerns budget. Thanks to Jennifer P. for buying all the personal care items, silverware, glasses and many other items with her Thrivent Action Teams Grant. The Social Concerns committee appreciates all the great help you people did to bring much happiness to these people at the Simpson House Shelter. Our next scheduled time for serving will be Saturday, October 6. If you have not ever served at the Simpson Housing Shelter, please consider joining us in October or talk with a member of our Social Concerns Committee.

JOSEPH'S COAT UPDATE

Because of the recent car accident that went into Joseph’s Coats facility, Social Concerns has been notified that Joseph's Coat cannot take any donations until further notice.  They have a lot of clean-up and repairs to do.  If you have donations, please deliver them to Dawn’s Closet at Valley Outreach.  We will keep you posted when Joseph’s Coats can receive donations in the future. 

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.

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!

WANTED: PEOPLE WILLING TO PRAY!

Interim Prayer list update for St. Paul’s - Please pray prayers of thanksgiving

1) for Mary Dinesen’s 11 years of serving on our worship/music staff – thanks be to God and God’s blessings on her as she begins her new position at Guarding Angels Catholic Church and   

2) for those recent new additions to various committees – Kevin Urhammer and Jeff Thomsen (Buildings/Grounds), Susan Meyer (Social Concerns), Sabrina Bell (Education), and others soon to be added to this list and

3) for transparent and reoccurring communication by our transition task force as to the current work of leaders of our church during this interim period – making sure that anyone who is interested will be informed of what’s going on these days in our transition period.  (This team has performed skits in worship, led adult forums, and visited with all the committees, the quilters, and the council to ensure that we all know how we can be a healthy congregation in the present and for the long term).  The growth opportunity to pray for is for all of us at St. Paul’s to keep an eye on the ways we operate in this community of faith – making sure that we do not “over-function”, crossing over role and responsibility boundaries, or speak and act in ways that cause discord among us.  This is a great congregation to be celebrated and we intend to continue to grow in Christ-centered ways.
