COMMUNITY OUTREACH

From The Outreach Committee/Missions

 

Thank you!  Through your generosity we were able to send $447 to Church World Service from our Blanket Sunday collection.  A check for $2,659 was also provided to Hope for NH Recovery from our spaghetti supper and art auction event.

The spirit of giving is alive at St. Paul's.

Mission Projects at St. Paul’s

Faith in Action

 St. Paul’s faith family is involved in a variety of missions, matching gifts with needs.  When a worshipper makes us aware of a need, we assess our ability to match it with the gifts among us.  Please let us know if there is another ministry we can join.  Also, does your life have room to be matched?  Here is a listing of what we are involved with:

Working With  Webster House

  St. Paul's Mission Team  is preparing a ministry for the Webster House - a home where children between the ages of 8 and 18 come to live for a period of time, away from their families.  There are times when a child deserves a 2nd chance – a chance to experience the joys of childhood and a chance to live in a structure, yet supportive and nurturing environment for children 8-18 years of age. 

We plan to provide birthday cakes and a present to each child.  If you'd like to bake a cake or would shop for a gift, please speak with Jan Loos.

News from the SAK Team

(Simple Acts of Kindness)

  We are looking for those who knit and crochet to help make lap robes, prayer shawls and baby hats.  These items go to Frisbie Memorial Hospital in Rochester, the Elliot Hospital, St. Paul’s ill and shut-ins, the Veterans Home in Tilton and Liberty House (homeless veterans) in Manchester.  Yarns are supplied.

 

  Our group is still meeting the 2nd Thursday of the month and will continue throughout the rest of the year in Fellowship Hall from 10 AM to Noon.  The group is growing and there is always room for more who want to join us or to just come for Fellowship!

 

The more the merrier!

 

  Last but not least thanks to all of you for your continued support for the SAK group and letting us meet at the church and the space we have to keep our yarn, etc.

 

FOOD BANK FOCUS
 

 

Thank you to everyone who's been so generously donating non perishable, protein dense food items each week to the Food Pantry.  Please be reminded that when you're sorting through clothing (children and adult) items, (indoor as well as outerwear), bag them up and bring them to church. These clothing items will be greatly appreciated by our clients who come to the Food Pantry. Monetary donations are also gratefully received.

 

Thank you so much, Al & Diane Innocent
