New Members

New Members will be received on Sunday, August 5. If you would like to join at this time, or if you have questions about the membership process at St. Paul's, please contact Pastor Scott Anderson.

Summer Pop-Up Choir continues! We will meet at 10:30 am on August 5 & 26 in Trinity Hall. Pop-Up Choir is a fun way to get into singing at church without any commitment other than showing up on Sunday morning 30 minutes before the late service. We learn an easy tune or special hymn verse to sing either during a hymn, psalm, or the offertory at the late service. No experience necessary, singers of all levels and ages are welcome to join us. If you are interested in learning more, or would like to get on the email list, please contact Jackie Nappi .


Book Club
Read a good book and then join the St. Paul's book group to discuss it. The August 16 selection is The Book of Joy, by the Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu, with Douglas Abrams. Questions can be directed to Barb Shade. A heads up for all -- in September -- we will continue to meet on the third Thursday in the library, but we are changing our meeting time to 3:00 pm. Our September book selection is A Man Called Ove, by Frederik Backman.
