Stewardship Sunday – October 22 – Next Sunday. As we have learned from the Vision 150 initiatives for St. Paul’s and discussed at our small-group wine and cheese gatherings across our community over the past few weeks, our plans for future initiatives depend on the pledged giving of every parishioner. Please bring your pledge card to church next Sunday, so we all may offer a visible sign of our commitment to move from gratitude to generosity in the coming year. If you are unable to be with us next Sunday, please either mail your pledge card to the office (116 N. Academy St., M’boro TN 37130), or complete your pledge on the parish website: Thank you for your support of St. Paul’s!

Vestry Nominations. Vestry Nominations continue today.

Absentee Ballot. Information about applying for an absentee ballot can be found in the eBlast or on the website.

Choir Crosses. St. Paul’s choir has grown and needs additional crosses to wear with vestments. Crosses similar to the no-longer-available ones we wear now have been designed by the same Tennessee jeweler who makes our Cursillo crosses. You can help defray the cost by donating old silver pieces to be melted down and cast (this needs to be sterling, not plate). A check to St. Paul’s for “choir crosses” would also help. For more information, please contact Carol or Richard Detmer.
