We will soon welcome our new pastor, Dr. Rick Brooks, his wife Lynn, and son John Wesley, to St. Paul UMC! Sunday, June 26 will be his first Sunday with St. Paul UMC. He will be preaching at all services on both campuses! You will have two other opportunities to welcome Rick, Lynn, and John Wesley to the St. Paul family

On Sunday, July 3rd Rick will be at St. Paul Downtown, where a Red, White and Blue Brunch in the Wesson Building during the Sunday school hour. There will be a welcome and old fashion 'pounding' for The Brooks'. Write a note telling them a little about your family and include it with your "pounding" item. You can even include a picture of your family so he can put a name and face together. If you will be out of town on the 3rd you can drop your "pounding" items and cards at the downtown office or the MRC.

On Sunday, July 10th Rick will be at St. Paul East where there will be a reception in the Fellowship Hall following the 9 a.m. service. Let's help Rick, Lynn and John Wesley become familiar with St. Paul and Ocean Springs by bringing a gift card for their family to your favorite restaurant or business in Ocean Springs. Include a note telling them a little about your family and maybe a menu recommendation for the restaurant you selected. You can even include a picture of your family so he can put a name and face together. If you are going to be out of town on the 10th, you can drop off cards at the MRC or to Jill Taylor.

We are so excited to have The Brooks' and know they will love St. Paul and Ocean Springs as much as we do!
