Wow! I hope all you are enjoying the beautiful weather! What a treat!
We have another wonderfully busy weekend at St. Paul’s! On Saturday Pre-EYC is volunteering at the Food Bank from 2-4pm (we have spots open if you would like to attend-see below) and on Sunday we have Communion Class, Parenting Through the Stages Class, Children’s Chapel and Sunday School (Children’s Formation).
Food Bank Volunteering-This Saturday 2/9/19
We have a few open spaces if you and your children (ages 5 and up) would like to volunteer at the Food Bank in Raleigh from 2-4pm on Saturday (Feb. 9). This is a great family activity and a great way to introduce your children to participating in Outreach activities! Please email me if you would like to join us so I can get you registered. You don’t have to be in Pre-EYC to participate…all are welcome!
Many of you have asked for 2019 VBS Dates. We are waiting on two things before we confirm VBS: 1) 2019 Operating Budget Funding 2) The Summer Repair schedule of the Education Building. The tentative date is June 17-21 and I will let you know as soon as the date is confirmed.
