ST. PAUL IS A WELCOMING CHURCH FREE DRYER  - A survey of spiritual “seekers” found that the top motivators for considering a church are knowing that everyone will be welcomed (32%), making friends and nurturing friendship (29%), support during difficult times (28%), and learning more about God (27%). “The findings point to a desire for genuine community,” said Dan Krause, General Secretary, United Methodist Communications. The survey, conducted by the Barna Group on behalf of United Methodist Communications, included people 25-49 who consider themselves spiritual, socially conscious, and seeking meaning in their lives, but who are not affiliated with a church. It was conducted in November 2017.

FREE DRYER- Mike and Nancy Sorensen are currently giving away their thirteen year old G.E. Electric Clothes Dryer, in excellent condition.  The dryer is free, but it will need to be picked up. If you are interested  or would like any further information please contact them at the numbers provided below.

CHURCH PICNIC - SAVE THE DATE The church picnic will be on Sunday, September 29, 2019. We will be eating and celebrating at Locust Shade Park near Quantico. We have found a lovely setting with 1) plenty of parking, 2) easy access to the pavilion and extra picnic tables, 3) lots of shade, 4) a playground very close, 5) restrooms nearby, we will be very close to 6) a volleyball net, and 7) a horseshoe pit. If you would like to take advantage of the park's additional opportunities, some at a nominal cost, there are batting cages, a driving range, mini-golf, tennis courts, hiking trails, and fishing all available. So mark your calendar for Sunday September 29 & plan on joining us. Sign ups will begin September 8.

UMW Collecting School Supplies:  The UMW will be collecting school supplies again this year.  We are requesting that you limit your donations to four specific items: 1-subject spiral composition notebooks (regular ruled), 24-count crayons, pencils, and pocket folders.  These are the items needed year-round by the elementary schools in our area.  We will be collecting items until the end of August.  Please leave donated items in the designated container in the extended narthex.  Thank you for your support. 

HELLO ST.PAUL FAMILY -   I'm writing this to share with the members and guests of St Paul that Cub Scout pack 1149 is looking for new scouts and families. We are accepting applications for both scouts and adult volunteers to help with the growth and development of our fine boys and girls who wish to join our pack. We are looking for school age kids from kindergarten to 4th grade. We recruit from Occoquan, Kilby, and Belmont Elementary schools. We meet on Monday nights from 7pm to 8pm at St Paul in various rooms or the Social Hall. We are currently enjoying a little summer break and our first meeting back will be Monday August 26 in the Social Hall. Please feel free to contact me for more details.
