BEGINNING this week, February 19, and continuing each Wednesday, Pastor Jean will hold office hours at St. Paul from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. She may be reached at 301-963-2185 or 443-487-7404.

 

EVERY FRIDAY at 11:00 am, starting this Friday, February 21st, come and have a fresh cup of coffee with Pastor Lee in the St. Paul fellowship hall. Bring your personal concerns, social concerns and issues that you would like to talk about with Pastor Lee. We may resolve your concerns or issues, but Coffee with the Pastor is a time to learn about one another through faith conversations.

 

NEXT SUNDAY, February 23, is Chili Day at St. Paul! Please join us following worship for a warm delicious bowl of Chili on a cold winter day! If you would like to contribute a pot of Chili or other fixings, please contact Susan Brooks (301-869-8798 or nedb2000@aol.com) or Sandy Walter (301-651-9080, 301-926-3341 or sandralwalter@aol.com).

 

OUR PANCAKE/WAFFLE SUPPER will kick off the Lenten season at St. Paul, and you’re invited! Festivities will begin at 6:30 pm on Shrove Tuesday, February 25, in the social hall. Our infamous Bingo game, coin search, and pancake races will again take place for all who want to join us. There might even be prizes involved!!! Don't want to race? We always need an audience to encourage those who play! Please see Melanie Shullenbarger or Leslie Hinkle for further information or to volunteer your help in preparing the meal.

AN ASH WEDNESDAY service with imposition of ashes will be held at Salem UM Church, Brookeville, on Wednesday, February 26, at 7:30 pm. We invite you to join us for this meaningful service.

 

A LENTEN BIBLE STUDY will begin Thursday, February 27, 7:00 pm, at St. Paul under the leadership of Pastor Jean. The six-week study is entitled Jesus The God Who Knows Your Name, written by Max Lucado.

For thirty-three years Jesus felt everything you have ever felt: weakness. weariness. sadness. rejection. He was tempted and his strength was tested. In becoming human, Jesus made it possible for us to see God. Bestselling author Max Lucado takes us further on the journey to know the life and character of the Savior, the person Jesus was on earth and how to live in a personal relationship with him.

        To defray costs, there will be a $13 fee to cover the study book. Those who plan to attend are asked to sign the Bible Study sheet on the St. Paul narthex bulletin board. Please indicate if you want the office to order your study book. You may also RSVP to Pastor Jean (301-330-0539 or jeanhlee5@gmail.com) or the St. Paul Church office (301-963-2185 or stpaul208@aol.com.

 

A SPRING BAZAAR is planned for Saturday, April 18, at St. Paul. We will feature furniture, baby needs, toys, puzzles, books, Christmas decorations as well as your treasures. We invite you to take a home inventory and see what treasures you would like to pass on. Plants, arts and crafts and food are additional possibilities to be offered.

 

THE NEW outdoor sign attractively announces services and events at St. Paul and serves to enhance our outreach ministry. We are still in need of a couple more volunteers to keep it up. It takes about 20 minutes to take the letters off, re-alphabetize them and put up the new text on both sides of the sign. This can be done after church on Sunday or anytime during the week. We will be glad to train you. All letters are housed in the church office. We will be glad to give you the text. Please contact Tina Burke (tinaburke73@icloud.com or 301-253-1719) if you are interested.

 

IT’S NOT TOO LATE to submit a 2020 financial pledge to St. Paul. Commitment cards may be mailed to the church, placed in the offering on Sunday mornings, or given to Kitty Mancuso, Financial Secretary. These cards are available in the narthex and may be used by both members and constituents of the church.
