What's New at St. Paul's?
COMING EVENTS At St. PAUL'S
EVERYONE IS WELCOME to experience the fellowship we offer by joining us for coffee/tea & occasional snack before or after the 10 a.m. Church Service in the lobby of the educational building each week. A sign up is available for those who can help provide goodies.
CONGREGATION MEETING AND VOTE There will be a congregation meeting and vote to approve the repaving of the church parking lot off Locust Street. St. Paul’s Property Committee recommends that we contract to repair and resurface the church parking lot for a total cost of not more than $68,000. The last time the lot was repaired was in the early 2000’s. The Licking County Board of Education, which operates the Phoenix School on Church Street and uses our lot, has agreed to contribute $22,000 toward the project as well as pay St. Paul’s an annual rent of $4,500 moving forward. The remaining funds will be from the Ponser Designated Property Fund and any donations from the congregation. The Congregation vote will be held after the services on the weekend of July 8th and 9th .
SHUT-INS – If you are in need of pastoral care, a friendly visit, or would like communion brought to your home, please contact the office and leave a message with Jodie between the hours of 10 and 2. Thanks!
FOOD PANTRY NEWS! The food pantry collection barrel is currently located across from the office. The needs for this month are any foods that can be prepared by a child. Peanut butter and jelly, ramen noodles, mac and cheese cups, etc. With school out many children are fixing their own meals. Please no clothing items. As always, all donations are welcome. If you wish to give a monetary donation, mark your offering envelope designated to the “Food Pantry”.
Three Church Farm-Our Own Outdoor Campground
Do you need a place for a family reunion, overnight camping,
weekend camping or just a family picnic?
Then The Three Church Farm is the place for you!
This is a beautiful hilltop area on Flint Ridge which was donated to St. Paul’s, St. John’s, Trinity and Christ Lutheran Churches by the late judge, Virginia Weiss. We at St. Paul’s help maintain this area during the year with mowing, cleanup and overall maintenance. Shelter House, picnic area, restroom facilities, water and sporting equipment is available with your reservation. Last year, the farm was only used 40 times with a lot of open dates. This facility is more than the October Ox Roast and needs to be used. No cost involved.
For reservations, check the calendar on Christ Lutheran Church web page. Click on Four Church Farm for the calendar, then call the church secretary at Christ Lutheran, 740-522-4505, for your reservation.
