The Sunday Lunch Bunch returns THIS Sunday
Yes, it's officially summer (!!!) and the Sunday Lunch Bunch (SLB) is ready to celebrate it. If you haven't yet heard of the SLB, we are a friendly group of
St. Paul's parishioners who gather on the FOURTH Sunday of the month at some local restaurant purely for the enjoyment of coming together around a simple meal. This Sunday after the 10 O'clock service, we'll convene during coffee hour in order to mutually determine our destination. All are welcome and invited and transportation is always available, if needed. If you'd like to know  more, please see Ed Jacobson, Maryann Kurkjian; or speak with an usher or greeter. We'd love to have you join us.

Summer Hymn Sing
During our summer Sunday services (June through Labor Day weekend), we have an ongoing "hymn-sing," where we sing hymns selected by members of the congregation. If you have a favorite hymn or two (or more), please let us know by submitting them in the hymn box located at the rear door of the church on the ushers table (there are slips of paper there for you to write on). We can't promise that all suggested hymns make it into a service, but we will do our best to include all of your suggestions.
