This year’s theme for Vacation Bible School is Game On “Gearing up for life’s big game”. VBS will be for children 3 years of age through those entering 5th Grade in the fall. Rising 6th Graders are encouraged to serve as helpers. In a couple of weeks, online registration will be available at St. Paul’s website. Katie Sherman and Sydnor Greene are this year’s co-directors and will soon be asking for your help. Put the dates on your calendar and encourage your children, grandchildren, godchildren, neighbor children and friends to attend. Game on!
The annual summer gathering of the Diocese of East Carolina ECW will be Wednesday, August 15, at Trinity Center. Registration will begin at 9:00 am, and the meeting will end after lunch. An exciting presentation is planned. The speaker will be Barbara Lau, director of the Pauli Murray Project for the Duke Human Rights Center. This project is inspired by the life and legacy of Pauli Murray, a lawyer and activist, raised in Durham, who became the first black woman ordained as an Episcopal priest. The cost is $20 per person, and we need a head count by August 5. Please let Allison DuBuisson know if you plan to come (firstname.lastname@example.org). Checks should be made out to ECW Diocese of East Carolina, and left in the ECW mail slot in the office. Closer to the event, we can arrange carpooling for those who are interested.
