Taste of St. Paul's: May 21, 6:30-9:30 pm
For all those that are planning to attend Taste of St. Paul's this Saturday, please find a preview of the silent auction catalog by clicking HERE.  For those that can't make it, we hope you will take a look through the catalog and consider making bids via proxy.  You will be assigned an anonymous bidder who will place your requested bid amounts on each item during the silent auction on Saturday; you set the maximum bid and they will take care of the rest.  More instructions are described in the catalog.
We hope to see everyone for a fun-filled evening!  
Astonished and Amazed
An enormous thanks to all of our readers, too numerous to name (but you know who you are!), who participated in last Sunday's Pentecost service. Thirty four of you "astonished and amazed" us by reading in thirteen different languages. We heard the story of the coming of the Holy Spirit in  Dutch, Farsi, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Latin, Mandarin Chinese, Spanish, Russian, Zulu, and King James' English. Together, your contributions created a wonderfully powerful and meaningful representation of the diversity of God's people as we celebrated the birthday of the church. Thank you!
Welcome to our new Childcare Provider, Lola!
 
 
Our new Childcare Provider will begin this Sunday!
Lola Adeosun is a junior at Boston University, studying English and Political Science. She is originally from London, U.K, but resides in Atlanta, Georgia, with her mom and younger brother. Lola started babysitting at 11 years old and lead a small group of kids at her church in Georgia for four years, which really spurred her passion for children. Lola states, "I have sorely missed child interactions in college, and cannot wait to meet all the families at St.Pauls!" 

We are excited to welcome Lola to the St. Paul's Family!
