It’s donut driveup Sunday!
Miss St. Paul donuts and coffee? On Sunday, Sept. 13, 8-11:30 a.m., St. Paul pastors and staff will be outside in the south parking lot for a donut driveup event. We will have your favorite donuts, a special St. Paul blend of coffee, a Connections flyer, and a small back-to-school gift for the kids.
Enter through High Street. Staff will guide each car through the parking lot. As a bonus, the forecast is for beautiful weather.
Learning also is starting up, with options for adults, youth, and kids. Here’s a sampling of the offerings:
Jesse’s Stump: The Pandemic from Inside Public Health | Sunday, Sept. 13, 4 p.m., South Lawn
St. Paul members Amy Thoreson and Brooke Barnes will provide a view of the pandemic from their work at the Scott County Health Department, where Amy is deputy director and Brooke is public information officer. As the Scott County office for reviewing plans and protocols related to pandemic response and control, the Health Department works with the most up-to-date information and best practices. That doesn’t mean they have “all the answers,” but Amy and Brooke will be willing to tell us what they know and what they don’t know, and to take “all the questions.” Bring your own lawn chair, refreshment, mask, and interest, and meet on the South Lawn – at High and Main streets.
Sunday Night Live (SNL) – New Time! | Sundays, 3:45-5 p.m., starting Sept. 13, North Lawn
SNL is a strong framework for high school youth, a fun place to get recharged before school on Monday morning. Live, grow, and serve. Jump into supersized life experiences. SNL has something for everyone. Contact: Andy Langdon, firstname.lastname@example.org.
