Dear Church Family,
Well, Fall is certainly here! The air is crisp, the leaves falling, and even a little rain fell recently to bless the earth.
In this season of thanksgiving, there is much to celebrate and be grateful for!
Here are your updates for Thursday, November 12, 2015:
Sunday, November 15th- Stewardship Sunday! One service at 9:30 a.m. followed by our Annual Pie Social.
Many thanks to Joni Michel for heading our Stewardship effort and organizing the Pie Social.
Trivia Quiz: Name two nursery rhyme characters who had their eyes on the pies. Keep reading for the answers.
Cookie Outreach Time! Referrals are now being collected! If you know of someone in our community who needs a little extra cheer and a message of love from St. Paul’s this holiday season, please contact Michelle Costa in the church office: 927-3239, or Lou Ann Carter: 927-5583 by December 3rd. Recipients might be new to the community, someone who has recently experienced loss, or someone who is a shut-in. Drivers also needed. Please let us know if you’re willing to drive, by the December 3rd deadline. And everyone, dust off those cookie sheets and rolling pins! As Elvis would say, let’s hope there’s a “whole lotta bakin’ going on”! (Thankya, thankya very much!)
Bulletin Correction Page 5 Re: Stewardship pledge return date- OOPS! The End-of-Season Stewardship Gathering / Brunch will be held Sunday, December 6th; not December 1 as noted in your November 15th bulletin. We ask that all pledges be returned no later than Sunday the 6th. Thanks!

Kudos to Doug Wong for his latest relief work! He can fill in the details.
Note of Thanks to St. Paul’s from CAN:
Thank you all for your donations of money, food, and time to the Cambria Anonymous Neighbor monthly food distribution program. The monthly check allows us to buy 2 Mac & Cheese packages for each of the 84 households per month The food donation is used to restock the pantry at the Santa Rosa Catholic Church as we use the pantry to give groceries to households that come in after we give out all of our commodities.
[During] our fiscal year we served just over 1,000 households/3,500 residents in Cambria with commodities from the USDA, North County Food Bank, Cambria Anonymous Neighbor, and St. Paul’s contributions.
Again, thank you all for your support.
Douglas B. Spelts, President
And with that, “Have a great weekend!” The ground should be perfect these next few days for planting deer-proof bulbs for spring blooming!
