News & Information Fenruary 2018
FEBRUARY 13, ---before we make our resolutions and commit to change our lives over the next 40 days we will come together for one last "party." We will have our traditional, "FAT TUESDAY PANCAKE SUPPER" in the parish hall. Invite your friends and neighbors, no tickets will be sold but donations will be gladly received. ALL are welcome. Pancakes and sausage will be served from 5:00-7:00 p.m. The "men of St. Paul's" will do the cooking and female volunteers will act as "wait-staff."
The Lenten season will formally begin with the traditional evening service of ASH WEDNESDAY SERVICE WITH IMPOSITION OF ASHES AND EUCHARIST on FEBRUARY 14TH at 7:00 p.m.
On WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 21ST, and every Wednesday thereafter, we will have our weekly SOUP SUPPER and LENTEN STUDY. There will be a simple meal of soup and bread/crackers. There will be a Sign-Up sheet for the soups. Please note on the sign-up sheet what kind of soup you plan to bring so that we may have a variety! We will need at least 3-4 soups each evening (you should prepare enough soup for 10-15 persons). The meal will begin at 5:30.
The LENTEN STUDY will begin at 6:30 p.m. and continue to 7:30-7:45 p.m. The study will be Rowan Williams (immediate past Archbishop of Canterbury) book BEING DISCIPLES, ESSENTIALS OF THE CHRISTIAN LIFE. It is a beautifully written little instruction book in Christian Discipleship. "Discipleship" Williams says is a state of being. It is about how we live; not just the decisions we make, not just the things we believe, but a state of being. In 6 succinct chapters he talks about what is required for us to continue following Jesus and grow in faith. The chapters are: 1. Being Disciples 2. Faith, Hope, and Love 3. Forgiveness 4. Holiness 5. Faith in Society 6. Life in the Spirit. Each week we will discuss a chapter. Books will be available in the parish hall beginning February 4th with a basket for donations to defray the expense of the books. ($ 7.00)
HOLY WEEK, the last week of March, there will be numerous
special services which I will talk about next month.
