October 14th Blessing of the Animals

Sunday afternoon OCTOBER 14TH at 3:30 pm on the church lawn. we will honor and bless those special beloved members of our families who have fur, feathers, fins, or scales,---and more often than not---more than two legs! Yes, it is that day that we celebrate and give thanks for our pets. It is always great fun and sometimes even a little chaotic. There will be non-allergenic treats for the pets. Each pet and human companion will be individually blessed and each animal will receive their own special medal and certificate. All you need to do is bring your pet on a leash or in a crate and join the fun. If you don't have your own pet, come and enjoy those of others---and yes---we have even been known to bless special Teddy Bears and favorite stuffed animals. Please invite your neighbors and friends and their pets and come to be a part of this joyous occasion.

Looking for Something to Do?
We can always use help; there are many opportunities to serve:
Altar Guild - Ushers -- Readers - Crucifer - LEM -- Hospitality
Yard/Grounds workers

Come and Sing with Us:
Tuesday, October 9th at 7:00 p.m. we will continue our favorite hymn night. We will be singing songs that are familiar and easy to sing, as well as occasionally going over songs scheduled for the upcoming Sundays. We sing for about an hour and then have refreshments in the parish hall with great fellowship. Hope you can join us and bring a friend or two.

Coffee Hour
Following worship service, we have a wonderful time of fellowship with our friends and a great opportunity to greet visitors.
A special thanks to all who make this happen by volunteering to serve as coffee hostess. There is a sign-up sheet in the parish hall every month giving you the opportunity to serve. Coffee is always served. The snack can be a slice of cake, cookies, sandwiches, chip and dip, crackers and cheese, etc—and recently root beer floats were a big hit. This was never intended to be an entire meal, just a snack; some wish to serve more and that is fine. That is their gift to you, so just say “thanks.” If you are not able to serve, you might consider buying coffee, creamer, sugar, small plates, cups, napkins etc.
Please join us each Sunday for this fellowship. If you have questions, feel free to ask one of the ECW officers: Paula, Joyce or Carol.

MONTHLY VESTRY MEETINGS
The vestry meets at 7:00 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of each month. Meetings are open to all members of St. Paul’s.
