WE WELCOME THOSE who are baptized into Christ and who believe that Christ’s body and blood are truly present when we eat the bread and drink the wine to join us for Holy Communion.  Grape juice is available in the middle section of each Communion tray for those who wish it.  Children who do not yet commune are welcome to receive a blessing from the pastor.

BRING A FRIEND/GOD’S WORK, OUR HANDS SUNDAY!

Everyone bring a friend to church on September 8. Our St. Paul children will show us how they fill “essentials bags” for our Mason Food Pantry. Cookies and punch will be served outside following worship.  “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” (Proverbs 27:17)

COOKIES are needed for next Sunday, Friendship Sunday.  Please put them in the Fellowship Hall kitchen Sunday morning.

Thank you for your help!
