As you are reading this, I hope you are enjoying the beautiful sunny days we have been having. !! If you are a summer traveler, please drive safely and enjoy your time away, but please remember to come back!
We are busy even in transition.
Our summer worship schedule continues with services at 8:00 and 10:00AM. This is done each year to help everyone have a few extra hours out in the beautiful creation that God has given us to relax, renew, and revive. The sanctuary is also cooler in the early morning! Isn't it strange, in the winter months we grumble because we are often chilly at 8:00AM and in the summer months we all appreciate that coolness! We are human indeed!
The Nominating Committee has met and will soon be asking you if you would be willing to serve on the Church Council. There are many leaving Council this September so there are many spots to fill. Even if you have been on Council in the past, you could serve again! If you have never sat on Council, maybe the time is now right. Please prayerfully consider serving when you are asked.
The Call Committee is ready and waiting for the Synod to send a candidate's name. If you are not on the Call Committee and have some thoughts, please talk to one of those serving and let your thoughts be heard. The members are: Francine Archer, Jewel Goodsell, Sherry Morse, Clem Nielsen, Deb Sitzman, and Elaine Gleason, Your opinions are important as you are a member of St. Paul's.
Mark your calendars and join together in fellowship on Sunday July 22. Chef Terry Jensen will once again light the grill and cook hot dogs for our Annual Church picnic. We will worship together at 10:00AM in the Sanctuary and then have lunch in the Christian Education room. Please sign up to bring a favorite summer treat to round out our lunch. Take time to relax and enjoy the company of your fellow church-goers.
Enjoy the summer months in God's beautiful creation. We are a blessed people! Elaine Gleason, Worship Deacon

From Our Social Ministry Deacon
Lots of behind the scenes work has been done at St. Pauls.
* A total of 43 hand-written invitations were sent to parishioners that we miss on Sundays.
* Sixteen pairs of shorts were sewn for little boys in Haiti. Kits with fifteen more pairs are being prepared.
* A group of concerned folks met to discuss how we can extend our opportunity to feed our local community. After talking to Sandi Perl of the Living Well, it was decided to table this plan until August. Most summer programs are in full swing and would be difficult to collaborate given the late date.
*Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday dear Jesus! Happy Birthday to you! We will celebrate Christmas in July on July 8th with a coffee hour celebration. We will also collect baby items for CareNet. Donations can also be made to this vital organization. CareNet provides prenatal care, testing and postnatal care for mothers and infants in need. Below are the items they need:
Baby oil, wash, shampoo
Infant disposable diapers
Onesies (one piece rompers)
Rattles, small infant toys
Gently used items also welcome!
St. Pauls is a generous, compassionate community. I give thanks daily for each of you.
Many thanks, Cindy Covert, Social Ministry Deacon

When we love others, our love grows
Rev. Jim Dugan Presiding
During this month we hear familiar themes of sin, light, darkness, love and community. We hear them not only in the lesson of the day, but also in the hymns chosen, the litany, the prayers, and in the words of the offering hymn. It is the hopes of the Worship and Music committee that this helps us all take a piece of the WORD home with us to carry us through the week.
