Light Along the Path - Oct. 4

Ladies, please join us for the return of our Annual Light Along the Path event  on Tuesday, October 4, from 6-8pm in the Atrium. Scripture tells us, “The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective” (James 5:16). Why, then, do so many believers feel as though their prayers are powerless and ineffective? Join us as Sherry Schumann delves into Scripture to uncover the things that hinder our prayer life. Topics include our propensity to be busy, feel inadequate, talk without listening, hold grudges and forget to delight in our Savior.

Ladies with last names A-S please bring a salad, and ladies with last names T-Z please bring a dessert.  The event is free. Please contact jojokingilagan@gmail.com with any questions.

Our Mission & Vision

Biblically minded – Christ centered – Holy Spirit driven

Our core values at St. Paul’s are the unwavering foundations upon which we seek to build Christ’s church.

Altar Guild - Invitation to Serve

Healthy liturgy doesn’t just happen – it depends on a hidden network of preparation by many people:  priests, musicians, lectors, acolytes, ushers and – Altar Guilds.  Altar Guild members work in teams to prepare the altar with linens, candles, silver, wine and altar hangings.  We prepare the church for the Holy Eucharist, Baptisms, Confirmations, Marriages and Funerals. St. Paul’s Altar Guild consists of teams of people who serve on a scheduled basis. You may serve on the Altar Set-up team, the Linen Care team and/or the Flower team. We are always looking for new members, both ladies and gentlemen.  If you feel called to serve in this way, it would be our privilege and delight to welcome you to a uniquely special sacramental ministry to the Lord Jesus and for His people. If you are interested in serving St. Paul’s Altar Guild/Linen Team/Flower Team or just want more information, please contact Corey Lutynski (clutynski@yahoo.com) or Nancy Harrison (nghdeh@yahoo.com).

St. Paul’s Flower Guild

We need you! Some people may never notice the flowers in our worship spaces weekly, but most would notice if they were NOT there to adorn our altars! And at this time, we need your help! No prior experience is necessary and there is no right or wrong way to participate in this vibrant ministry. We work in teams of 2 or 3 members. If there are enough participants, a team may only arrange once every two months or less. Please consider being a part of the Flower Guild, to the glory of God and St. Paul’s Summerville! If interested, please contact Beth Szostak at bethfszostak@gmail.com.

Acts 1:8 - September Minute for Mission

This month, we are highlighting Rivers and Becky Camp, missionaries in the Republic of Chad in North-Central Africa.  They are an example of the vision and mission of St. Paul’s Acts 1:8 Outreach Ministry to encourage the parish to answer the call of Jesus to be His witnesses to the uttermost parts of the earth, whether those parts are next door, in Summerville, our diocese, national or on the other side of the world.

Hearing Aid Donations Needed

Might you have some unused hearing aids around your house? We have seniors who desperately need them. If you have an old pair of working hearing aids please consider donating them to St Paul’s. We will ensure that they are cleaned, packaged, and presented to someone who has no insurance benefit or funds to afford them. Just put them in an envelope, or the original container, and place them in the Pastoral Care mailbox in Skardon Hall. God bless you for supporting a sister or brother in need!

Historic Churchyard Restoration & Preservation

Pick Your Day, Pick Your Hours, Pick Your Spot! We need volunteers to help do yard work to clean up and maintain our beautiful historic Churchyard. If you can donate a few hours, we need you! Email Fr. John to sign up!

Companions for the Journey - St. Paul's Staff Book Recommendations

Are you looking for a book or resource to help you live out your faith or a particular aspect of your spiritual life? We’re beginning a new feature on our social media, called “Companions for the Journey,” where our staff will share some of their personal recommendations. Maybe they will bless you, too!

This month’s pick is from Fr. Tripp:

“The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self” by Carl R. Truman. Want to understand our culture? I highly recommend this book’s intellectual engagements our modern Western societies; including extreme individualism, cultural amnesia, and the radical sexualizing of our culture. 

Food Pantry Volunteers Needed

We need volunteers for our Food Pantry. Volunteers needed Monday & Wednesday evenings from 5:00-7:30 P.M. Email April McLean at IMFD@StPaulsSummerville.org to learn more!
