WEEKLY NOTES August 7th, 2022

Greetings Saint Paul's Family and Friends!

This has been a week! As Pastor Becky and our youth were away working and having a great time together on the youth mission trip, I was attending a UMC clergy women's conference that energized my spirit and nourished my soul. I laughed. I cried. I was inspired, challenged, and refreshed. I was fully present and ready to experience and receive all that this ministry opportunity had to offer. And God met me there.

NOW, I'm back in Tally and wonderful things are on the horizon at Saint Paul's by the Sea!!! THIS Sunday, August 7th is YOUTH SUNDAY and you don't want to miss it! The youth will be giving the message, sharing about the mission trip, encouraging our hearts, and reminding us all that they are not just the leaders of the FUTURE; they are leading right NOW. And, as is our annual tradition, we will be BLESSING THE BACKPACKS (yaayy) as the students prepare to return to school. 

Friends, this is our last Sunday together in one summer service before moving back to two services on August 14th. Let's plan to SHOW UP and SHOW OUT! I am sooooo looking forward to seeing everyone on Sunday! Y'all have a way of brightening my day!!!! 

With Overflowing Joy,

~ Pastor Latricia

WORSHIP WITH US ON SUNDAY

Join us this Sunday as we continue studying the messages of the prophets.  During the summer we combine our two services into one, and that meets at 9:30 AM in the sanctuary, followed by a Sunday School hour with classes for all ages.  You may also tune into our worship service online through both Facebook and YouTube.  This Sunday we will record the live service and post later in the afternoon so everyone can share in our Youth Sunday.

Manna on Meridian Needs Donations!

Manna on Meridian has continued their food distribution on the third Saturday each month throughout the pandemic, with a slightly different format.  Needs have increased, while food donations have decreased. Saint Paul's is committed to bringing cereal boxes (regular size 10-12 oz.) but they also need canned goods and rice.  Just leave your donations in the office or in room 308.  Thanks!

Children's Ministry Update


There's room for new friends in all our fall programs and we would love to have you join us!  Big plans for our smallest disciples in PMO are being made to share the love of our Lord with them through story, craft and song, please spread the word!  We are also putting a capital A in Art for the Kids@Art this year, we will be exploring African inspired styles of art and will make for a one of a kind experience. 
Of all the places you could go, we are so glad you chose to make our church a place for your children. Praying for all our children and their families as we return to school this week I am writing Jeremiah's words on my heart and need to hear them often,   For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. - Jeremiah 29:11 

Thank you for your faithfulness, 
Bridget

Youth Ministry Updates

Thank you to all who prayed for and supported our youth in their Mission Trip this past week!  We are all safe and home with stories and pictures to share.  
Sunday, August 7th will be YOUTH SUNDAY, with our teens leading us in worship.  That service will be recorded live and published online on Facebook and Youtube later in the day.  On August 7, following Sunday School, the youth are invited to Becky's house (the parsonage at 2914 Woodside Dr) for lunch, games, and our passing of the torch ceremony.
