IT’S TIME FOR AN OLD-FASHIONED CHURCH PICNIC!!!!

 

Gather ‘round after church (@ 12:00) on September 12 for a rip-roarin’ good time playing games and eating delicious potluck picnic foods, just like our ancestors did!

 

Our church grounds will be converted into an area of old-fashioned fun and games for ALL AGES! Bring your favorite picnic food to share. Beverages and paper products will be provided.

 

Let’s make this a Rally Day we will all remember!!! 

FRIDAY OCTOBER 1st – St. Paul’s (52nd) Bazaar!

 

Important update - The church committee that monitors Covid-19 trends and advises on best practices feels it would be safest if we did takeout only instead of in-person dining for this year's Bazaar. Masks will be required at all times, for everyone inside the church. Our Kitchen Team will be making pot pie and perhaps some other items to be sold To Go.

 

Bazaar (Crafts, Bake/Canned Goods sale & Flea Market) 9am - 7pm. Chicken Pot Pie Quarts & Pints served 10:00am - until gone; no pre-sales or hold requests please! 

 

Help us get the word out about the Bazaar!   Copies of the Bazaar poster are available on the table in the common area. Ask your local stores and businesses if you can put one up on their bulletin board or windows! It helps a lot.  Be sure and tell your Family and Friends about it.  

GENERAL CHAIRPERSONS: contact Kathy Williams and Jenn Martek with any questions or comments.

KITCHEN: Patty & Dave Scott and Brenda & Tim Kern

Pot Pie Quart Making: Thu., Sep. 30, 8am-? Please join us--sign-up sheets are on the bulletin board in the Commons.  No experience necessary--we provide "on-the-job" training!
