St. Paul’s Newsletter – 4 April 2024

Friends –

What a glorious Holy Week it was! Many thanks to those who helped to organize, to those who participated, and to those who attended the various services offered during the special week! Hopefully some traditions have been established which will continue for years to come! I believe this will be a fantastic Eastertide! Alleluia! Christ is risen!

Christian Formation

Last Sunday, Easter Day (3/31), we discussed chapter 8 – The Rung of Change – and the Epilogue in the book Ladder to the Light by Steven Charleston. This concluded our study for the 2024 Lenten season.

​***Sunday, April 7, we will not have formation class.***

Our book study during the season of Eastertide will be A Journey with John, part of the 50 Day Challenge collection from Forward Movement. Our first discussion will take place on Sunday, April 14, and will include Days 1-14. This study will take us through Pentecost.

All are welcome to join us Sundays at 8:30 a.m. as we discuss the Gospel of John and its relevance to us today.

Service for Velma Landley

A service for Velma Landley, Barbara Bajon’s mother, will be held on Saturday, April 13, at 11:00 a.m. in the nave at St. Paul’s. A light lunch will follow in the Parish Hall.

Hospitality Continues

Our friends from First Christian Church are getting closer to being able to use their own space again; but, until then, will continue to utilize the nave at St. Paul’s for a few more weeks for their worship services on Sunday mornings @ 11:00 a.m.
