ANNOUNCEMENTS

P&M Breakfast/ Work meeting Saturday, January 26 at 8:00 a.m.

Please note – UCW Unit #1 will now be meeting on the first Wednesday of the month at 1:15 pm in the friendship room.

2018 Narrative Report are due February 4th.  But earlier is better 🙂

Stories Wanted.  For the month of February we need stories about why the church is important to you or what the church means to you. These will be read either by you or by Gord  (your choice) during the sermon. Gord will add in some Theological Reflection to go with the story (so he will need to know what you are going to say beforehand). If you want to share your story talk to Gord. Otherwise he will be hunting for people to share their stories.

The first Sunday of each month there is a second offering that is dedicated to local outreach.  This past month from December 1 -31 we gave out 9 food/ gas vouchers for a total of $650.00 from our local outreach fund.  Please consider donating “in good used condition” warm clothing such as mitts, gloves, socks, toques and bath towels for the Saint Lawrence Center. Thank you for your continued support.

The 102nd Street Stitchers – (one Friday a month – watch here for next date)
Quilters and Crafters plan to meet once a month, bring a project, work together on a project, do a community or outreach project, whatever you choose! The Friendship Room is booked 10-3. Bring your lunch or coffee and goodies to share. Conversation and advice is free! If you want more info call Carla at the office or Gail Schau or Sherry Alstad.

St. Paul’s Council is seeking a Treasurer and a Member at Large. The current secretary would be happy to step aside too. So if you are interested, would be willing to join us in any one of these roles on council please contact Karen Scott or Rev. Gord.

Voice Enhancement Choir – Tuesdays – 10:30 am at Grande Prairie Care Centre 9705 – 94 Ave
The main goal of this choir is singing to maintain and improve vocal heath. As we age, we need to work to keep our voices strong. We just happen to have a lot of fun singing together while we do it!
Free to join & everyone welcome!

St. Paul’s has an easy fund raiser to help with the Church renovations. All you need to do is bag up all your empty bottles, cans and milk jugs and put our church id # 1468-2415 visible on each bag and drop them off at the bottle depot on Resources Road and before you leave, check in with the cashier and let them know how many bags/boxes or bottles/cans you dropped off.
*** $671..15 has been brought in since January 1, 2018***

The Communications Committee is always looking for photographs! If you have any photos of recent St. Paul’s events, please forward them to Carla for use in newsletters, narrative reports etc.  Please let us know how we are doing with our messaging on the LED sign; in the Newsletter; on Facebook; and/or on the St. Paul’s website.

Would you like to put an announcement in the Sunday bulletin? Please have them to Carla in the Church office by Thursday’s at noon in order to have them in for the current week’s bulletin.

New to the church? Want a photo directory? See Carla in the church office to buy your copy for $15.00

Offering Envelopes – Making your donation using a set of offering envelopes is the easiest way to ensure you receive a tax receipt for your givings. If you don’t have a set of offering envelopes, and would like some, please contact Carla in the church office.

We are in need of Scripture Readers and Door Greeters every Sunday. Please sign the lists in the foyer if you would like to volunteer to help during the worship services. 

PLEASE be sure to check with Carla in the church office before you expect a room to be free for your use. Rooms booked with Carla in the office will have first priority.
