Do you attend the 11:00 a.m. Sunday service? Do you live in the
northwest part of town? A long-time St. Paul's member is looking for a
ride from her home in River Park Plaza (on an occasional basis) to the
second Sunday service. If you are able to provide assistance, please see or call (241-3466) Judie Wiseman. Thank you for considering another way that you may be able to help your Christian neighbor.

Mary Martha's prayer quilt ministry is pleased to say that two St.
Paul's prayer quilts are now with Abby and Sue P. Prayers have been
said, knots tied, and our love and faith in the Lord's power to comfort,
strengthen, and heal have been shared. The ladies are working on a pair of quilts for two other individuals. Those quilts will be out as soon as they are finished, but in the interim there will be a quilt for you to continue praying and tying knots in our same spot in the third and smallest area of Fellowship Hall. When we have information on who will be receiving the quilts, it will be posted. Thank you, your help is greatly appreciated by the Mary Martha Circle.

The ladies of Mary Martha who are interested in sewing on prayer quilts #3 and #4 will be gathering from 2:00 pm to dinner time on Wednesday afternoon, September 27th. Also those that are available will continue working on Thursday morning, September 28th at 9:30 am until noon. We are working on getting permission to do quilts for two new individuals. Those interested in the fellowship more than the sewing, bring your chosen craft project and keep the others company.
College students addresses are needed in the church office so we can keep in touch. Outreach committee is planning to send care packages in October.

The NOAH Project operates a community center in Central UM Church in Detroit for people living on the streets. It offers lunch 4 days a week, one-on-one social services, physical health counseling, empowerment based programming, and emergency needs. For the next four weeks St. Paul’s Outreach will be collecting warm socks for these men and women that are homeless. If you are interested in participating in this service, please bring new adult warm socks and put them in the bin in Fellowship Hall.
