Thoughts From The Pastor
Dear St. Paul Family,
Greetings to you on this June weekend!
At 9:00 East and 11:00 Downtown services we will observe Father's Day by focusing on what it means to "know the Father's heart," Luke 15: 1-3, 11-32. At 9:00 Downtown Betty Weaver will take up the theme of "Father of All," 1 Samuel 16: 1-13. Our Lay Delegates to Annual Conference (Gerda Leek at Downtown, Terry Fordemwalt at East) will give a brief report from last week. And at "Live at 11:11" (East), Greg Arnold will be doing the preaching honors for this Sunday.
We had a great Vacation Bible School week here at St. Paul A special shout-out goes to all our volunteers who helped with this year's "Power Up! VBS! A kids VBS dance party will close it all down on Sunday at East campus after 11:11 service.
June 23 will be Rev. Betty Weaver's last Sunday as Associate Pastor at St. Paul, as she is "retiring" (again) from pastoring (we'll see!). There will be a reception at Downtown Campus on that day at 10:00 a.m. in the parlor, honoring Betty for her service this last year!
Looking ahead, another important note is that during July and August at Downtown campus there will be one service of worship at 10:30 a.m. Please help get the word out about this schedule change. It begins on July 7.
Have a blessed weekend, and see you Sunday!
