St. Paul's served 300 lunches over three days and took campers on a field trip to Farrington Nature Linc. Campers wanted to know if we could cook lunch every week, because they liked our pasta with meatballs so much! Thank you to the congregation for making this possible through a Ministry Outside the Parish grant, and a special thank you to everyone who donated toys or time this year!  
Welcome Back James and thanks to Ben and Walter!
Our Sexton, James Santagati, is back from vacation...welcome back James! We all missed your presence at St. Paul's while you were overseas!Our buildings and grounds were kept in good hands while James was away thanks to Ben Norton and Walter Mucha. Please thank Ben and Walter when you see them as there were many tasks they attended to behind the scenes (i.e., overseeing concert events, worship service set-up, coffee hour set-up, building maintenance and cleanliness, outdoor grounds work, etc.) We are ever so thankful to you both!   
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. 
Traveling "FLAT ST. PAUL"...Where are You?

Please remember to take FLAT ST. PAUL with you during your travels this summer. He's available at the ushers table in the back of the sanctuary.
