Hello St. Paul’s Family,
I hope all is well and that the wind and pollen haven’t declared war on your sinuses.
Weather is expected to be warm and bright this weekend, so hang in there!
Some things to note:
Sunday May 21 flowers are offered in loving memory of John and Bea Balint, by the Balint family. Bea was the original recipient of the Busy Bee honor. Thanks to everyone whose efforts keep this church buzzing along week in and week out! You’re all wonderful busy bees doing the “heart work” of the church!
There will be no weekly updates for the next few weeks, so please consult your Sunday bulletin, the posted calendars on campus, or the Parish Hall bulletin board for your latest news. Any updates of names for weekly prayers will need to be entered by hand in the Intercessor’s binders those weeks, as bulletins have already been printed.
In addition, phone messages will be monitored and routed by Father Brian and Barbara M. in my absence. Father Brian’s number will be included on the voice mail line at the church office, should you have an urgent matter requiring a quicker response.
Altar Guild- for Sundays May 21, May 28 and June 4, please feel free to leave the Intercessor’s binder in the sanctuary instead of trying to return it to the office; as the following week’s Guild members may not have a way to retrieve the binder if it’s brought into the Admin building. Simply remove the used prayer sheets from the binder after each week’s services, and return the sheets with the empty basket. Your bulletins through June 4 will be in the sacristy with all supporting documents there as well. Any questions, just call Barbara M.
8 am complete volunteer schedule and PARTIAL 10:30 am schedule are attached. 10:30 volunteers please direct any questions to Carol S. She will be identifying the other Sundays’ assignments soon.
To the Choir: Congrats on a great season of uplifting music. I always looked forward to a “Musical Coffee Break” on Thursdays during your practice sessions. I won’t be at your final Sunday of the season on June 4 to wish you well, but have a wonderful summer, AND CONGRATS ON AN AWESOME SPRING CONCERT as part of the Chorale.
Congratulations to “The Rev. Dr. Brian G. Palmer” on earning his doctorate! I think his textbooks, when stacked, are taller than he is! And he still has his eyesight even after all that reading! Good Job, Father Brian!
A “Clean sweep” of dust and cobwebs on the horizon! We have sometimes heard from folks, that though they would LOVE to help with our garden maintenance, they really aren’t able-bodied or skilled enough to tend to our landscape. Well, here’s an opportunity for anyone who can use a broom or whisk broom! The task, aka The Great Cobweb Caper, is easy, flexible, yet very important this time of year!
Mary Brockman has identified several exterior walls and stairs around our buildings that need to be rid of cobwebs and dust. If you can help us remove them, simply call her and you/she can identify an assigned area that you can then commit to sweeping clean anytime between now and June 2. This one-time task is really that simple! Mary can be reached at 924-1450.
“Seeing red” on June 4- As is our tradition on Pentecost, please consider wearing red on that day!
