Every year Episcopal churches in the South Bend Deanery hold an Ascension Day service with local ELCA churches. This year's service will be at First English Lutheran Church, 16495 Ireland Rd., Mishawaka. Bishop Bill Gafkjen will preside and Bishop Edward S. Little will preach.
Bishop Little's last official visit to St. Paul's before he retires will be on Sunday, June 7. He will preside and preach at both services and will confirm four individuals that day.
Join us on Saturday, June 6 at 5:30 pm for a farewell potluck dinner in honor of Bishop Ed and Sylvia.
Every year area churches join together to fund and build a Habitat for Humanity house. It is called the Matthew 25 house! This year's house will be at 120 W. Marion, Mishawaka - right next door to last year's house. Join a team from St. Paul's on Saturday, June 27 from 9:00 am to noon to work on this house. That day the schedule includes installing siding on the garage and indoor painting. St. Paul's will also provide lunch that day. If you are interested in working at the site that day or helping with lunch, please sign up on the sheet at the back of the church.
Adult Education During May: We will be studying the book Listening for God, V. 1-- specifically looking at three short stories by Flannery O'Connor, Alice Walker, and Raymond Carver and one essay by Frederich Buechner. The dates for the study will be Wednesdays, May 6, 13, 20, & 27 beginning with Evening Prayer at 6 pm and the study at 7 pm. If you wish for a book to be purchased for you, please sign up in church on Sunday.
St. Paul's has planned a fund raiser to "Boost the Budget" for Saturday, June 13th at 6:00 P.M. in the undercroft.
Please mark your Calendars!
We have an old fashioned Box Social planned and we would love to have each and every one of you join in on the fun and at the same time, help out with our church expenses.
Here is how it works. Couples prepare a boxed meal with food for two people. If you are single, please feel free to invite someone to join you, team up with another person from church or come alone. Just pack a boxed meal for two people.
Please use your imagination and decorate your food box. Be creative as there will be a prize for the best one. (There will be a decorated box in the back of the church just to give you some ideas.)
We will have an auction, one box at a time and the highest bidder will win that particular meal until all of them have been sold. You will eat your meal with the person that prepared the box. What a nice way to get better acquainted with all the faithful at St. Paul's!
Beverages and dessert will be available for you to choose from for only a $1.00 donation.
