With Bulletin For June 19 Service

June 18, 2022

Dear St. Paul’s Church Family,
  What an extraordinarily productive and festive week it has been for our parish! We had our usual committee meetings, Joe Hammer’s Music Monday, Sam Baker’s Lunchbox Series, St. Paul’s Suppers delivered to over ninety people, and our upbeat Thursday Bible study. In addition, we hosted a pizza and cupcake party for kindergartners, a luncheon for the Fairwinds counseling center staff, and enjoyed a fabulous Ships Inn fundraiser dinner - a gift from Chef Mark Gottwald and his staff. Wow!
   Thank you to all who organized and participated in all these efforts, especially our Mission Committee, and also Christine and Olly for organizing our dinner so magnificently. Thank you too for your condolences and prayers with the death of my sister Joanne last weekend. It is at times like these that I so appreciate being part of such a loving parish family. 
See you at church!
A message from Mission Committee Co-Chair and Ready, Set, Read coordinator Dorothy Baker:
"This week, we celebrated the conclusion of our reading program, 'Ready, Set, Read' with kindergarten students at the Community School. Our volunteers, teachers, and students enjoyed pizza and cupcakes as we laughed, sang, and Father Max read aloud to 24 students. 
Thank you to Peter and Cheryl for donating "Nat, Nat, the Nantucket Cat" to each student, to Father Max and Olly for the pizzas, and to Leslie for the cupcakes. A big thanks, also, to our reading volunteers: Dottie, Libby, Lindsley, Lucy, Father Max, Olly, and Randy. 
Our Tuesday reading put books in the hands of these fabulous boys and girls, and smiles on their faces! Thank you, thank you. Dorothy"

Nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee! E'en though it be a cross that raiseth me, still all my song shall be, nearer, my God, to thee; nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee! W Though like the wanderer, the sun gone down, darkness be over me, my rest a stone; yet in my dreams I'd be nearer, my God, to thee; nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee! W Now on joyful wing cleaving the sky, sun, moon, and stars forgot, upward I fly, still all my song shall be, nearer, my God, to thee; nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee!
