Mid-Week Service

Mid-Week service will be held at noon tomorrow.  All are welcome and invited to join us for a time of prayer and for Holy Eucharist.

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” – Matthew 7:7

Christmas Eve Sunday

Just a reminder that tomorrow is both the 4th Sunday of Advent and Christmas Eve.

As Christmas Eve begins at noon, we’ll combine our two morning services into one 9:30am service to celebrate the 4th Sunday of Advent.

At 5:00 pm there will be Holy Eucharist with Carols and Candlelight.

At 10:00pm there will be Choral Eucharist with Brass, Carols and Candlelight.  Carols begin at 9:45pm.

Join us!

Wednesday Service

Every Wednesday at noon our doors are open to all who would like to join us for prayer and Holy Eucharist.

“Hear my prayer, O Lord;
Let my cry come to you.
Do not hide your face from me
in the day of my distress.
Incline your ear to me;
answer me speedily in the day
when I call.

Psalm 102

Announcements & Prayers

December 17, 2017

 

Welcome to St. Paul’s! We hope you enjoyed worshiping with us this morning. Take a moment to say “hello” to Father. Shawn, sign our guest book if you would, and please join us for Hospitality Hour next door!

During the season of Advent, evergreens are traditionally used to decorate the Altar in place of flowers in keeping with a more solemn tone of the Season.

The evergreens on the Altar are given to the Glory of God and in memory of Edward P. Butt by his parents Ed & Barbara Butt. May he rest in peace and rise in glory.

The Sanctuary Candle is given to the glory of God and in memory of Jim Norton by Judy Norton. Rest eternal grant to him, O Lord: And let light perpetual shine upon him.

Today is our annual “Greening of the Church” after the 10am service. Everyone is invited to stay and help decorate the church for Christmas. Hospitality hour will be served in the Narthex. Thank you, as always, to the Ritchie family for hosting hospitality today.

The Christmas Letter & Flower Dedication Form were mailed last week. If you did not receive one, please contact the office. There are also additional flower donation forms and envelopes in the Narthex which you can put in the offering plate.

Next Sunday morning, December 24 is the Fourth Sunday in Advent. After 12 Noon, it is Christmas Eve. SO, there will be one service at 9:30am to celebrate Advent 4 and the Christmas Eve and day services are as listed in your inserts. Bring a friend!

There will be a Mid-Week Healing Service this Wednesday, December 20 at 12 Noon.

If you would, please take a moment and look at the Hospitality Sheet. We particularly need someone to host Hospitality Hour on the 31st of December.
