Pasta Dinner!
Please join us for our annual Pasta Dinner on Saturday January 23 at 5:30! Due to the COVID-19 situation, this will be a drive-by pickup, with a free will donation. Reservations in advance are required. Details will be in the weekly email, or contact an outreach committee member (see left).

St Paul's
The church congregation will again be serving take-out at St Paul's on January 11 and February 8. Please contact an outreach committee member if you can safely help.

Past Events & Thank You's...
Outreach succeeds when the congregation is involved. Here's some of the amazing things our congregation has done:

St Paul's Soup Kitchen - While the format has changed to a meal pick-up, the need for St Paul's Soup Kitchen remains. Thank you all who have been able to help. Special thanks to the Scout Troop for shouldering much of the burden.

Feast of St Paul's - We raised almost $800 for the St Paul's Soup kitchen! Thank you all for your help and contributions. Our costs for St Paul's have been higher this year because we've had to purchase more food, so this really helps.

Thanksgiving Eve - Every year, members take time from their Thanksgiving holiday to serve a special dinner on Thanksgiving Eve. Thank you! Special thanks to Princeton Station for cheerfully providing the food, despite the hardship COVID-19 has put on the restaurant industry.

Christmas Tree Sales - The annual Christmas tree sales were a huge success, with the bulk of the sales in the opening weekend. Thank you all who helped organize, unload, and sell trees, especially those of you who were there so much that you effused pine scent for a few weeks!

Giving Tree - The congregation once again spread cheer and food security to the communities! The format changed to keep the recipients and congregation safe, but you came through just the same. Special thanks to our new organizer for an outstanding event.
