Beat The Heat

With A Root Beer Float

“Soles for Souls”

Shoe Collection

The Outreach MAT is collecting gently used or new adult or children’s shoes.  During July, we would like you to hunt through and clean out your closets of gently used or never worn shoes, sandals, tennis shoes, and even boots and donate them to St. Paul’s.  Our collection will end on Sunday, August 6th.  Donations will be given to Salem Lutheran AGAPE program, Mosaic Ministry, or DART where the shoes will be passed out to struggling families and children.  Bring in your donations of gently used or new shoes begging next week.  Just look in the Gathering Space for the SHOE BOX.  If you have questions, contact any of the Outreach MAT members.


500 Years

Mark Your Calendars

This year is the 500 year celebration of Martin Luther’s Reformation and, for that reason, we want to make Reformation Sunday (October 29th) an extra special day of celebration with our church.  There will be one service only, at 10:30 am, with a special visitor… Pastor Melvin (Bud) Miller who was Senior Pastor here at St. Paul’s from 1972 to 1984!  We will have a communion service, full choir, and a reception immediately following, where Pastor Miller can greet old friends and meet our current members.  Watch the weekly issues of the “Messenger” and monthly issues of the “Communicator” for more information as it becomes available.

Needed

School Supplies

The Outreach MAT and St. Paul’s members are partnering with Maumee Schools this year to promote basic school supplies for some of their students.  The bagged supplies are collected by St. Paul’s then distributed by the school counselors to the students to help them begin the school year.  The collection will begin on Sunday, July 9th and the deadline for school supplies will be on Sunday, August 6th.  Look for the display in the Gathering Space on July 9th to pick up your bag and directions.  We thank you for your support if you can help us!


Wanted

Bargain Hunters

Each year, the Outreach MAT and Volunteers team together to help needy children in the surrounding area purchase clothing to begin the school year.  Struggling families with school-age children are referred by pastors, members of St. Paul’s and the counselors at the Maumee elementary schools.  Lists are made, and volunteers go shopping with the selected families to help purchase clothing for the new school year.  We are in need of about 12 volunteers to go shopping with a family.  Funds will be given to the volunteers to help the family purchase the items.  If you are a shopping wiz and love the challenge of finding the most clothes for the best prices, then this might be the ministry for you. Contact Sue Schad at 419-893-2330 BEFORE July 9th to volunteer.

Sunday Morning

New Schedule

This Sunday is the start of our new Sunday morning schedule.  At 8:00 am we will have our Traditional Worship service.  Following that service at 9:15 am we will have a new dedicated time of Bible Study & Fellowship.  Be on the look out for exciting Bible studies & Fellowship opportunities!  The morning will wrap up with our new Modern Worship service at 10:00 am. The staff has worked hard and prayerfully to make the new service worshipful.  This new service is designed to honor the heart of our Lutheran traditions with modern style.  The musical worship is led by a full band with new songs and some older ones in a contemporary style, while the message remains the same.


Movie Night

Come Join Us!

Join us next Friday, June 23rd at 7:00 pm for our Monthly Movie Night.  Come early & enjoy “Food Truck Friday’s” and the Farmer’s Market in the parking lot next to St. Paul’s at 5:00 pm. This month we will be showing “A Dog’s Purpose” which is rated PG. The movie is about a dog looking to discover his purpose in life by showing humans how to laugh and love over the course of several lifetimes and owners.  Childcare and an age appropriate movie will be provided in the nursery for younger children.  Any questions contact Sarah Howard at 440-503-8755 or sarah.j.howard5@gmail.com


“Undie Sunday”

Bring Your “Undies”

We all take so much for granted, but for many struggling individuals and families, underwear is a luxury.  On “Undie Sunday”, you can bring NEW packages of underwear (boxers for boys and men & panties for women and girls, larger sizes really needed) and put them in the labeled wooden bin in the Gathering Space.  The donations will be given to families and individuals at Salam AGAPE meals, Mosaic Ministries, and the DART ministry.
