STEWARDSHIP is part of all we do, including self-care. Your Stewardship Team has chosen June to be the month in which to focus attention on the importance of leisure in each of our lives. And what better way to encourage self-care but to play and eat together in a park! So, let’s do A Potluck at Martineztown Park on Edith at Hannett, right across the street from the cemetery. The date is June 23rd, right after the service. Bring a chair for each person in your group (or a blanket to share) AND food to contribute to the potluck. We will provide paper plates, napkins, plastic utensils and bottled water. Maybe you have a frisbee or football you want to bring along. This is another chance for fellowship with our SORCC friends. Come have fun!   -Paula Eglinton

THE NEXT QUARTERLY MINISTRY AND MISSION MEETING originally scheduled for June 15th has been rescheduled for June 29th at 9:00 a.m. We will receive activity reports from out active congregation committees and teams; start our “bottom-up” budgeting process; and, continue discussions for our organization to meet our mission needs. I look forward to seeing you there and hearing all the great things Saint Paul is doing.   -Roger Hein

A HEARTFELT THANK YOU to Ross Hanold, without whom we would not have had a float in the Pride Parade; also, thanks to Ross for driving so well and safely. Hoping I did not miss any person , there were 12 people. They were involved with walking, communicating, holding our banner and giving our business card with the candy stapled to it. Close to 3000 cards were hand delivered to the people on the sidewalks. In addition, St. Oscar Romero Catholic Community (SORCC) walked with its Banner; this was the first time some Catholics participated in the Pride Parade!!    -Else Tasseron, Outreach Committee

THE VISUAL CHOIR NEEDS YOUR HELP with their new banner project. We are looking for recyclables in earth tones, blue tones, and green tones. The materials can be paper, plastic, cardboard - metal cans, whatever you are throwing away. I have saved wrappers from fast food, toilet paper wrappers, a box from my favorite tea, wrapping paper, you name it! Much of the material will be cut up for this project and we are hoping that it will be transformed into something meaningful. There is a bin in the Friendship Corner that is labeled for the Visual Choir for all your contributions. We will, also, check the regular recycling bins for usable items for this project. As always, your help with this project is greatly appreciated!!!    -Jo Browning, Visual Choir

“YOUR STEWARDSHIP TOOLKIT FOR June 16, 2019”, written by Rev. Rob Blezard, Assistant to the Bishop, Lower Susquehanna Synod: Psalm 8:3-4When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars that you have established; what are human beings that you are mindful of them, mortals that you care for them? Cultivating a sense of wonder about God’s amazing creation helps nurture a spirit of generosity. Look at the world around you; signs of God’s lavish goodness abound. Now look in the mirror and see the wonder that you are. The Creator entrusts YOU to care for this abundance.   -Jan Krakow, Stewardship Team
