IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT! The Offertory during our worship service is much more than just ‘taking up the collection.’ The Offertory is the time to prepare for communion by celebrating our Oneness in Christ and with that in mind we will observe the Offertory by singing our favorite hymns! Do you have a favorite? Let us know!
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT! Please sign up for coffee hour. Episcopalians are famous for our conversations and coffee! The signup sheet is in the Parish Hall. Help us extend our hospitality after the service!
Special Thanks to Dennis & Charlene McAndrews and to Larry Hall for providing for the Coffee Hour yesterday!
A Giving Opportunity! St. Paul’s supports the Center for Lay Ministries’ Food Pantry serving the food insecure in Clark County. Look for the Little Red Wagon in the side door vestibule to leave your food contributions. When in doubt – PEANUT BUTTER!!

Q & A from the BCP
Our Book of Common Prayer contains an Outline of the Faith (P.845-62) that
forms a framework for the way Episcopalians look at God and God’s work in the
World. Each week we will feature a couple of these questions and answers!
       3

Q; Why do we live apart from God and out of harmony with creation?
A. From the beginning, human beings have misused their freedom and made wrong choices
Q. How did God first help us?
A. God first helped us by revealing himself and his will, through nature and history, through many seers and saints, and especially through the prophets of Israe
