New Pianos. Thanks to the enormous generosity of several parishioners, St. Paul’s is blessed with two new acoustical pianos. The Kawai baby grand pianos (acquired from Shuff’s Piano Showroom, Franklin) will be used in the new choir room and in the nave. These fine instruments will provide more variety and fuller accompaniments to our music ministry.

Training Session for New Kitchen. Training session for using the appliances in the new kitchen will be held soon after the July 4th holiday. There will be several times and dates for the training so that everyone who is interested may learn. Please call Kathy Warlick in the church office and give her your name so we can plan accordingly. There is also a sign-up sheet in the nursery hallway.

A Prayer for Discerning the Care of Our Youth. Gracious Father, we praise you for entrusting us with the lives of children and for calling us to faithful stewardship of young persons in this parish. Open our hearts and minds, we pray, to see clearly the path you would have us walk that our youth may come to know you and to see themselves as your beloved sons and daughters. Instill in the parish a heart for this ministry that workers may come forward to labor in it, and fill us with confidence to enter into the work and your grace to accomplish it. We ask this through your own Son, our Savior, Jesus. Amen

Mission Trip Volunteers. We will need individuals, families or church groups to provide a meal for our youth group during our mission trip, July 13-16. Three lunches and one breakfast. Please contact Wesley at if you have can help.

Commemorative Bottles of Wine. The last batch of wine is here. If you have not turned in your payment, and received your order, it is available in the Parish Office during normal office hours. Please pick up your order as soon as possible.

Men's Club Re-Boot! Please join us on Thursday, July 9 at 6:00 pm for the first-ever Men’s Club in the new Parish Hall! Since we aren’t up to speed on the use of the new kitchen yet, we’re making this a Pot Luck dinner – everyone bring a dish to share. (Nothing fancy – we’re men, after all!) After we’ve eaten our fill, we’d like to have an open discussion about the vision for Men’s Club and other ministries involving the men of St. Paul’s. Please contact Don Clayton if you have any questions.
