Help make a difference by putting your Faith in Action
Faith in Action Suggestion for the Month of July:
We are called to pray, AND we are called to put our faith into action. We are called to follow Jesus which means we need to love and serve our neighbors in the name of Christ. It’s also our job to stand up to injustice and respect the dignity of every human being.
This month we suggest you explore the Facebook site for Episcopalians United Against Gun Violence. Go there each week this month and find something you can do. Like, follow, read, share, explore the resources. You can also check out Bishops United Against Gun Violence online. And Remember – all you need to do start somewhere. Then Keep going. You can do it. You can make a difference!
Help serve the world in the name of Christ...
Outreach Project for June & July
It's time to fill up the red REACH bags, again!
This time we're REACHING for Back-to-School Supplies for Children in Foster Care
We invite you to take a red REACH bag and fill it with school supplies, and/or offer your prayers for this project and the people we are reaching out to serve. REACH bags are available for your convenience. Take one with you when you go shopping and bring it back with your gifts of love and care to help support God’s children. Kids in foster care need to feel loved and supported. They deserve to go back to school with all the supplies they’ll need to succeed. Thank you so much for your support!
Do your part to help spread the Good News...
As followers of Jesus, we are called to share the Good News and spread the love of Christ throughout the world. There are lots of ways to do this. Through E-vangelism many of us can reach out to far more people than we ever could have without the technology that both enhances and challenges our lives. Let's use this blessing for good and share love, hope and joy all over the place!
This month's suggestion is to find us on Instagram. Visiting us on Instagram is a great way to get inspired, and when you "like" what you see and comment on it, you're helping that message of Good News spread even further. It's that easy! Who knew that evangelism could be so simple? Thanks for helping!

Here's what you can Look Forward to Next Sunday:
This Sunday, July 31st at 10:15am
What good is it to store up treasure on earth and hoard the abundance that results from your many blessings? Blessings are meant to be shared, and every day is a gift. No one knows how long we each will have on this earth. While we're here, we need to be generous and kind. We need to be a blessing to others. Come hear inspiring scripture, beautiful music and an uplifting message of hope and love. Come get inspired!
Lots of great things are happening!
Keeping Up with Everything Offered at St. Paul's:

Finally, I welcome you to reach out to share your spiritual journey. Next week, we’ll have new ideas and resources for you. And week after week we’ll get stronger, go deeper and offer ourselves to be transformed more and more into the people God is calling us to be.
God bless you this week and always,
