MONTHLY DEVOTIONALS: “Welcoming in Christ” is the discipleship-stewardship emphasis linking St. Paul’s 60th Anniversary and the Anniversary Capital Campaign. To supplement this, each month a special devotional reflection will be offered. The theme for July is “appreciation for lay leadership.” You can find these devotionals on our St. Paul’s website (www.stpaulscary.org). If you’d like to share your thoughts on a theme, you may email them to email@example.com.
Welcoming in Christ – The Anniversary Capital Campaign, Volunteers Needed: We are looking for volunteers to stuff envelopes for the campaign, help set up a tour of our campus, tour facilitators, and volunteers to hand out sealed packets for the capital campaign on our anniversary. All volunteer sessions will occur at different times and for about an hour each. Thank you for all that you do for St. Paul’s!
