St. Paul’s has two ongoing ministries in the community:
*Supporting the Youth Shelter with Halloween and Easter Baskets. *Supporting the Center for Lay Ministries Food Pantry with food contributions.
We believe every person has gifts to be used for the betterment of God’s World. Yes, these are our ministries. We are thankful for Debbie’s ministry benefiting children in broken home situations.

Collect for Sunday, November 6 (Proper 27)
O God, whose blessed Son came into the world that he might destroy the works of the devil and make us children of God and heirs of eternal life: Grant that, having this hope, we may purify ourselves as he is pure; that, when he comes
again with power and great glory, we may be made like him in his eternal and

glorious kingdom; where he lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

O When the Saints Go Marching In
 St. Paul’s will observe All Saints Day Next Sunday, November 6, during the Morning Eucharist.
1. 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!
2. Our Bible Study group is doing a study of the Gospel According to Mark. It’s a great way to meet the scriptural Jesus. It’s not too late to join us. Our next meeting is Wednesday, November 9, 6:30 in the Ed. Wing.
3. Our UNCHOIR is for anyone who likes to praise God through singing. No experience necessary. See Mariane or Jim about our rehearsal and singing schedule!

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!
Q. What is prayer?
A. Prayer is responding to God, by thought and by deeds, with or without words.
Q. What are different kinds of prayer?
A. Some different kinds of prayer are adoration, praise, thanksgiving, penitence, oblation, intercession, and petition.

Q. What is Christian Prayer?
A. Christian Prayer is response to God the Father, through Jesus Christ, in the power of the Holy Spirit.
What a thing it is to be part of the Body of Christ!
