September Penny Wars
During the month of September we will be collecting change during the penny wars. We will have four jugs labeled in age groups of 0-18, 19-35, 36-66,and 67-99. Put your pennies in the appropriate jug, Each penny equals 1 point. Any other coins create negative points (nickel = -5 points, dime = -10 points, quarter = -25 points, and for a dollar = -100 points). The Growing in Grace Group will count each Sunday the money in each jug and report points for each age group. The group having the most positive points and the least amount of negative points wins.

New Ministry at St Paul!
St. Paul has started a new ministry to help with communication between members. This is something we all can do to help “Share the Joy of Christ” in the lives of our members. We are asking each of you to take time, whenever you are in the church for worship, coffee hour, a meeting of one of our ministries or just stopping in for a minute, to write a note to someone in our church. It might be a “get well”, a “quick hello”, a “thanks for the work you do” (i.e, mowing, decorating, coffee hour, cleaning, planning, etc.)
Look for the plastic tub with the dark pink top. There are all kinds of cards with envelopes available. We have different lists of our members in the large plastic bag; homebound, kids, inactive, grieving, etc. There are pens in the bag as well as updated directories for the addresses. There is everything you need, including stamps. Just drop your completed notes off at the office and we will send them out snail mail for you.
It will only take a few minutes of your time to support our friends. When you write a note to someone, just put the date and your initials on the list beside their name, then all will know who still needs a note. All of the supplies; notes and stamps have been paid for by Thrivent Financial. With this project, we can actively “Share the Joy”.
A mail box has been installed at the entrance of the labyrinth. It will contain prayer cloths and a “Let Go and Let God” prayer card. As you walk the labyrinth you might consider any cares and concerns you may have. In the center there will be a device in which to tie your prayer cloths to and leave them there. Your thoughts as you walk out of the labyrinth could be of thanksgiving. There are many ways to walk the Labyrinth this is just one of them.
