Pies, Ice Cream & Sloppy Joes
Wednesday, July 4th, 2018
Fireman’s Park- Waterloo
On the Fourth of July, St. Paul’s will be selling pies, ice cream and sloppy joes down at the park. Last year, as a fundraiser for our youth trip, we added sloppy joes, a variety of chips, and bottled water to the menu. It was a huge success so we plan to do that again. The council has not decided where the funds will be used this year. We are asking for donations for the above items, as well as 4 workers per 2 hour shifts from 11am until 9pm. Sign-up sheets are on the table in the narthex. We are requesting a certain number of FRUIT PIES so that we have a variety for our customers, and pans of uncut brownies as we prefer to cut the serving size based on our prices. Please note, we do not have the facilities to keep cream pies cold.
Thank you in advance for your donations and time; it’s greatly appreciated!

The calendar is on the bulletin board. Members can sign up to support the work of Pastor Rod Nordby and Nancy Anderson who are working in Papua New Guinea (see information on the board in the narthex), by signing up on the poster for one day or a group of days, and donating $5 per day. Please mark your donation for “Missionary Support.”
Each week we have some members who are assigned to intentionally pray for our congregation during the week. A new schedule, running through the summer, will soon be posted in the narthex. If you would like to be added to this ministry, or would like your name removed, please let the church office now, or make a note on the current schedule in the narthex.
St. Paul’s Wants Your Input
The church council members would like to hear about your questions, concerns, and praise regarding the programs, facilities, and personnel at St. Paul’s. The people to talk to about these things are the committee chairpersons or the council reps on the various committees. A list of information regarding who to call is found in the Leadership Directory. If you would like a copy, they are in the information rack in the narthex or contact the church office.
Through “Simply Giving”, your gift payment is made through a pre-authorized withdrawal from your bank account. You determine the frequency of your automatic gift—weekly, semi-monthly or monthly—the option is yours. It allows you to share your gifts through planned giving and activates your generosity into ongoing stewardship. Because your gift is given consistently, you won’t need to play “catch-up” at year-end or worry about forgotten checkbooks or missed Sunday offerings. “Simply Giving” forms are available in the narthex or call the church office and we can mail one to you.
