Rejoice in Hope
St. Paul’s is an open church, an inclusive Christian community in the Episcopal tradition. We welcome everyone wherever they are on their spiritual journey. We welcome especially all who may have particular reason to think they may not be welcome because of ethnic, racial or religious background, age, sexual orientation, financial circumstance, physical appearance, physical or mental ability, or past or present sins. We confess that we are not a community already perfect in love, but we want to become more fully loving and we welcome into our community all who wish to join us. We are together as children of God.

You may also email Ferne your plant list and she will print out pictures and information. This is just an option. Thanks, Ferne! It will be exciting to see all the variety!
For the yard sale, bring items to the Church before by 5 pm on Friday, May 6. If you want to bring things earlier than that, you can put yard sale items in the back hall of the parish house. Can't wait to see what comes! The proceeds of the sales will go to purchasing new clear protective window covers so that the beautiful colors of the Church's stained glass windows can be seen.
