With Bulletin For November 21 Service

November 20, 2021

Dear St. Paul’s Church Family,
  We’re back! Olly, Meatball and the kitties and I returned late Thursday after a peaceful, relaxing two-week vacation on Block Island. We are grateful for the time away, and we are thankful to return home to a community and natural surroundings that we cherish. 
  Already the holidays are approaching, and we have plans for several events for which I hope you are able to participate. We are broadcasting Nantucket Interfaith Council’s Thanksgiving service on Tuesday evening at 7:00, please see the information below. On Thanksgiving Day, please join us if on island for Eucharist at 9:30 a.m. The season of Advent begins next Sunday, with Advent Lessons & Carols planned for our Sunday Eucharist on December 5. Celebrate the Christmas Stroll weekend at St. Paul’s with a Concert & Reception on Friday evening, December 3 at 7:00. See you at church!
The following YouTube link is the same to watch Tuesday’s Interfaith Thanksgiving broadcast live and to watch it after the fact:
Dear Fellow Parishioners,
  We have reached $335,000 in pledges from more than 100 parishioners for our 2022 stewardship campaign. That is 70% of our goal of $475,000 (from 200 parishioners), thanks to your generous support. We are working on our 2022 budget now. As we have said, a priority is funding our expanded work to help our fellow parishioners and island residents in these challenging times: St. Paul’s Suppers for families in need, snacks for island school children, support for the island food bank and more, along with important pastoral care provided by Father Max and our staff. From the testimonials in our brochure, we know this work is having an important, positive impact in our island home; this is what we mean in our 2022 campaign theme of "Love, Serve, Thrive.” So far, the average pledge is more than $3,000, up 18% from 2021. There are many ways to pledge for 2022: You can mail your pledge card back to us, drop it off at the church office or drop it in the collection plate at any Sunday service. You can also pledge and make pledge payments securely on line at our website here: https://stpaulschurchnantucket.org/give/give-treasure-pledge-donate-or-gift/, where you can also download a pledge card and brochure. Also try our new app — go to your app store and download the Ministry One app, which is purple with a white cross in it--just follow the instructions to get started. 
Thank you! 
Peter and Patsy

Widely yet his mercy flows. ♦ Angels, help us to adore him; ye behold him face to face; sun and moon, bow down before him, dwellers all in time and space.
Alleluia, alleluia! Praise with us the God of grace.
