Week of Sunday, September 8, 2019

Service Opportunity: Our Middle School and High School Youth and their families are going on a Service trip to the River Bend Food Pantry. We will be packing backpacks to be shipped out across the Quad Cities. We will have limited space available if anyone in the congregation would like to join. If interested, please see Jeff Bernhardt for more details.


Reminder: Our first Middle School Outing: Sunday, September 15 from 5-7 PM for dinner and game night here at St. Paul. Looking forward to meeting everyone and kicking off a great Sunday School year!

Flower chart for 2019: Has been posted in the narthex. You may sign up to provide flowers for one or two vases for our worship services. Flowers may be given in honor or memory of loved ones. The cost of flowers is $20 per vase. Please pay for your flowers at the time you sign up to provide them. There is a box for this purpose located directly beneath the flower sign-up chart. If you want to pay by cash, please enclose your payment in an envelope with your name on it, so our secretary knows who has made the payment. There are a lot of dates open for flowers.

St. Paul’s 150th Anniversary:
We will be planning St. Paul’s 150th Anniversary on Sunday, April 26, 2020. The Committee for the 150th Anniversary of the church has been formed. We’ve got lots of ideas and would like more. If you can, join us on Wednesday, August 28th at 7 PM at church to share thoughts and start firming up our thoughts. Any Swedish speakers out there? Any Swedish artifacts you’d be willing to share for an event during the anniversary year? Share your ideas with any of these ladies: Janet Boney, Wilma Carroll, Teresa Carlson, Lori Dhabalt, Jeannine Filler, Judy Frenell, Diane Gainey, Gloria Grafton, Jane Helke, Joyce Hepner, or Mary Lindgren.

Orion Schools Breakfast Program: With school beginning in a couple of weeks, our congregation would like to once again supply the Orion school district with breakfast items for those youth and children who are in need. Items suggested are; individual cereal boxes, pop-tarts, rice krispy bars, granola bars, and fruit cups. A basket is available in the courtyard hallway for your donations. Thank you for your support!


Sunday, September 15th: First day of Sunday School at 9:00 AM!! Please also mark your calendar as a reminder that we will go back to TWO worship services, 8:00 AM and 10:30 AM.

College Care Packages: Family Life Committee will once again be sending College Care Packages to our College Youth. We currently have 35+ college kids who would love to get a box of goodies right before Winter Finals. We will be collecting items from November 3rd – November 24th with the boxes being packaged and shipped that following week. We would love donations of items for the youth – popcorn, snack-packs, candy, pencils, highlighters, note cards, post-its, chapsticks, hand sanitizers, small Kleenex packs, and Starbuck’s gift cards. Or donate any other item you think they would enjoy receiving this time of year! Thank you!
