Welcome Summer!

Ice Cream Social!

It’s time to celebrate the end of another successful Sunday school year and welcome in Summer.  Join us next Sunday, May 28th, after the 9:30 service for a good old fashioned Ice Cream Social. We’ll have ice cream and all the toppings.  All we need is YOU! Weather permitting, we’ll be scooping ice cream outside under the parking lot entrance or Gathering Space.

We’re always looking for volunteers to help scoop ice cream.  If you would like to help, see the sign-up sheet in the Gathering Space.  Thanks!  Questions contact Sarah Howard at 440-503-8755 or sarah.j.howard5@gmail.com.


Movie Night!

Come Join Us!

Join us on Friday, May 26th, at 7:00 pm, for Courageous. Courageous is rated PG-13, and is for the more mature audience. An age appropriate movie will be shown in the nursery for younger children with childcare.  Refreshments will be provided and, at the end of the night, we will be raffling off a copy of Courageous to one lucky person in the audience.

Why not make it ‘dinner and a movie’?  Food Truck Fridays will be taking place in the side parking lot beforehand.  Support our local food trucks by grabbing some dinner and then stay for a movie!

“Simply Give”

For God’s Storehouse

This program, that helps stock our “God’s Storehouse” food pantry, is once again being sponsored by Meijers in Maumee on Conant Street and Sunday, May 14th is the last day.  It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3:  1) Pick up a blue/green “Simply Give” slip from the box in the Gathering Space.  2) Take the slip with you when you shop at Meijers and present it to the cashier.  3) He/she will add your $10.00 donation to your shopping total.  That’s it!  Your $10 donation will be tallied.  At the end of the program, St. Paul’s will be given your monetary donations in the form of gift cards which we can use to restock the God’s Storehouse.  The Outreach MAT would like to thank you, in advance, for helping others by your generosity!


4th Annual

Heart Health Month

Blood Pressure Checks

May is Heart Health Month here at St. Paul’s.  RNs will be available to check your blood pressure and provide education regarding hypertension.  That screening will be provided between services in the Gathering Space on Sundays, May 21st & May 28th.


Determination

Determination – Deciding it’s worth it to finish what you started.

Through out the Bible, God has been faithful to His people.  He sent His Son, Jesus, to save us from sin, and He sent the Holy Spirit to empower us.  Paul wrote “So let’s not get tired of doing what is good.  At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.” (Galatians 6:9 – NLT) to the church at Philippi.  He was encouraging them and us to show determination and keep doing good even if we don’t see any results immediately.  In time, God will help us see that finishing what we start is worth all the effort.

Life isn’t always easy, but God will give us what we need to keep going.  Through the help of the Holy Spirit we can push forward instead of giving up.  We can trust God because He knows the end of the story.

FREE Workshop

For Seniors & Caregivers

Everyone ages.  We all experience predictable, natural changes as we age, as well as unanticipated ones.  It is wise to prepare for all stages of life but, especially, for the senior years when we begin to slow down.  Seniors & caregivers of seniors are invited to a special 2-day workshop.  It’ll be a time of sharing concerns and planning for the future.  Explore some of the options and care available to you as you age and learn to navigate your way through those choices.  The first day, Thursday, May 11, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm, has caregiver focus.  The second, Friday, May 12, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm, has a housing options focus.  The workshop is free and open to the public.  Come for both days or just one.  The presenter is our own Joyce Oravecz.  Joyce has a Gerontological Certificate from Lourdes University and brings over a decade of experience sharing her passion for the aging population.

Follow Up

St. Paul’s Easter Egg Hunt

Thank you to all who came out and supported our annual Community Easter Egg Hunt & Pancake Breakfast!  On Saturday, April 15th, St. Paul’s front lawn was covered with almost 3,000 eggs and lots of eager kids ready to hunt for them.  Families filed the fellowship hall after the egg hunt for a pancake breakfast and craft.  We had a wonderful turnout from the community and congregation.  Thanks to everyone who contributed in any way from donations, egg hiding, pancake flipping, and craft teaching.  


See a slide show of the event on St. Paul’s Facebook page!
