We are rebuilding the St. Paul’s United Prayer Team. This is a group of people who will receive prayer requests from members of the congregation and commit to pray for the people and situations named. If you would be interested in being a part of this ministry please let Gord know.

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.
*** $544.70 has been brought in since January 1, 2018***

Beginner Bells Have you ever wondered about playing hand bells?  If so, this is the time to try them out.  You can try them without committing to being in our choir, but please come and try!  Beginner Bells meet every Sunday after Church (with the exception of other church events on a Sunday, or School holidays) from 11:20 until noon.  Hope to see you enjoying the beautiful sound of hand bells!

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.
