Hunger, back-to-school weekend at St. Paul

News | August 17, 2017

Back-to-school blessing
The anticipation of a new school year is in the air: school supplies, back packs, and the eagerness of learning new things. On Sunday, Aug. 20, St. Paul will hold its annual back-to-school blessing.

Students of all ages can bring backpacks and laptop bags to worship at 9:20 and 11 a.m. for a special blessing. Just bring your bags up to the front of the Sanctuary near the altar. The blessing will be during the children’s message. Children will receive a small item to remind them God is with them as they return to school. Sunday morning learning at St. Paul begins again on Sunday, Sept. 10.

Hunger awareness weekend
On Hunger Awareness Weekend, food expresses love for our neighbors.

Food Pantry gathering: Stock a paper bag with nonperishable food items and bring it to worship that weekend. The food gathered will be used to fill the shelves at the Friendly House Food Pantry.

Garden Share: Too many tomatoes? Not enough squash? St. Paul people can bring bounty from their gardens and take what they can use or share with others. The harvest left over will be donated to Café on Vine.
