Lenten Book Discussions
This book study will be in conjunction with our Wednesday Lenten Series. The book discussions will be after the 10:00am service on the Sundays of Lent beginning February 21.
In Being Mortal, bestselling author Atul Gawande tackles the hardest challenge of his profession: how medicine can not only improve life but also the process of its ending.
Undie Sundays through Lent
The Undie Sunday drive for Communities Together begins next Sunday, February 14th and continues through Lent. Please consider donating diapers, pull ups, undies, and socks. There will be a marked collection box in the vestibule.
The People’s Pantry
For the month of February St. Paul’s will be collecting personal care items such as lotion, chapstick, shampoo, and deodorant, as well as soups and hot chocolate packets for the People’s Pantry. We would like to focus specifically on these items so that there will be enough of them for all guests to receive them. The People’s Pantry is open to anyone in need, no questions asked, and is run 100 percent by volunteers…there are no salaries, no overhead, etc. Every penny is used for foods and other necessities for their clients. The pantry cannot accept expired or previously opened items and prefers regular sized items. Donations may be left in the church vestibule in the bin marked “The People’s Pantry.” If you would prefer to make a monetary donation checks are also accepted and should be made payable to: People’s Pantry. Should you have any questions please contact Stacey Cameron at 978-374-7057.
