Good morning all.  Martha’s Mission has a big day coming up on Wednesday when they anticipate a big new influx of those in need–so let’s help them meet the needs of people in our community who are experiencing food insecurity.
The list this week of needs include:
  • sandwich material
  • margarine
  • sugar
…and of course any other food, paper goods or cleaning products you are able to contribute.
Thank you as always for your continued and quite extraordinary support.

Monetary donations are also being accepted. You may make a donation online at the St. Paul’s website,, or by dropping a check off at the church.  Please be sure to indicate on your donation that it is for the Food Pantry collection.

**Please remember to maintain social distance and safe practices, including wearing your face mask, while dropping off your donations.** 

At its last meeting the Vestry discussed in detail what it would take to return to in person worship in the church. One of the metrics for returning indoors for worship is the percentage of those among us who are vaccinated. We believe that most of our congregation is vaccinated and would like to confirm that assumption with some concrete data.  If you are willing to share that information, kindly respond the survey below. Your information will be kept in the strictest of confidences. We appreciate your cooperation.

A New Day Has Dawned …
In celebration of the season of Easter, and in thanksgiving for the coming of Covid 19 vaccines and the season of Spring, it’s time to come together for a six-week class on Mindfulness, Movement, and Meditation led by Cindy Cash. The one-hour class will be outdoors (weather permitting) behind the St. Paul’s church office on Wednesdays at 5:30 pm on April 14, 21, and 28, and continuing on May 5, 12, and 19.
Participants are invited to come for a time of gentle movement and stretching, and to practice gratitude and mindfulness. If you don’t know the first thing about mindfulness, or if you have never prayerfully  meditated, this is the perfect class for you. No experience is required.
Our first class will be a chair class, and subsequent classes will include the use of a yoga mat. We will focus only on gentle movements and everything can be modified to suit everybody – and every body. Men and women are invited, and guests are encouraged. Just wear loose fitting comfortable clothes.
Please RSVP to the church office if you are interested (252-728-3324 or There is no cost for the class, but at the conclusion of the course, a donation to the Rector’s Discretionary Fund, or the charity of your choice is appropriate.
If you have any questions, email Cindy Cash at

Sunday Servants Schedules
As we start to have regular outdoors services, we will be returning to the Sunday Servants schedules that we used pre-pandemic. We will be using the teams which were set up in 2020 based on the Time and Talent surveys that were returned then.  We will be using the 8:00 schedules for the 9:00 services and the 10/10:45 schedules for the 11:00 services.  Emails will be forthcoming when a start date has been determined.

Please complete the 2021 Time and Talent survey and return to the office by May 15, 2021 so that the schedules can be updated.  The 2021 Time and Talent surveys will be in the Sunday Service Bulletins, and are available at the office.  If you would like one mailed to you, please let us know and we will be happy to do so.  The office number is 252-728-3324 and our email is
