Exploring the Topic of Grief. Sooner or later we all experience the grief that comes with change and loss.

Norman Wright’s small book “Experiencing Grief” as a guide. Books are available for purchase for $10. The group will begin on Thursday, April 12 at 2:30pm and meet each Thursday until the last session on May 10. Please let Dale know if you would like to participate or pick up a book in advance. Enrollment is limited to ten participants. A similar group will be offered at a later time and date for those unable to attend this one.
Calling All People with Time and Talent! We are very blessed to have a very talented ‘Church Family’ at St. Paul’s, who are willing to give their time! We need to strengthen our Church Council with new members willing to serve the church community. Come on board and help us and our new minister, Rev. Dr. Dale Skinner, chart our course for our exciting future. Council is developing a revised constitution that will allow for a more effective and modern governance structure for our church and has formed a committee for this purpose. Therefore, we are only seeking a commitment for one year to the present church council structure. We need you all! If you are interested in sharing your talents in this manner, or nominating someone for a role on church council, please express your interest to Sue Butson or to any other member of the Nominating Committee (Wayne Heath, Bob McDonald, Jennifer Cummings, Rick Rye, Caroline Brodie, Theo Wolder). Let us support and rally around our new minister by joining our leadership team.
St Paul’s Annual General Meeting – Save the Date! The AGM is scheduled for Sunday, April 22, 2018. After worship, we will have a “potluck” lunch, followed by the AGM. Please bring “finger food” ONLY (eg. sandwiches, cookies, etc., no hot dishes). Please bring the food plated, wrapped well, and ready to serve. There are/will be sign-up sheets in the atrium. Come and support your council and learn more about the life and work of your church. Nominated volunteers will be presented for election. All are welcome!

Easter Bake Sale, Sunday March 25 during service. Bakers needed! Please contact Kim or Lesley for details.
Save the Date! St Paul’s Awesome Yard Sale! Saturday September 8, 2018. This is just a “heads up” for our planned Yard Sale, to take place on Saturday September 8, 2018. The sale will take place on the east lawn of the church, times to be determined, but during the Farmer’s Market hours. If the weather is inclement, we will move the sale into the main level hall. Perhaps there will be so many items for sale the hall will have to be our overflow area, anyway? Please begin setting aside your “gently used, in good repair, treasures”, for the sale. The church cannot be used to store your items! There will be further updates throughout the next 6 months.
Information on the Rose Window Memorial plaque, which gives a place to recognize and remember individuals who were important in their lives, is available here.
Donation baskets are in the atrium for the Food Bank and for new toiletries, clothing and toys for women and children at Halton Women’s Place. These are ongoing outreach projects of St Paul’s recommended by the Mission & Outreach Committee. Thank you for your support!
