This Week at St. Paul’s Advent 1 – Hope
All attendees must remain masked inside the building.
Sponsorship of Radio Broadcasts and Bulletins may be done at any time as memorials or to honour a special occasion or for no specific reason at all. Each week expense is $80 to cover the cost of a radio broadcast but any contribution is gratefully received.
A donation has been received in memory of Jim Wynter and Alex & Helen Hastings from the family.
Our Christmas Newsletter will be ready to be picked up at the office this week or will be mailed on Thursday. If you are able to deliver some to friends or neighbours without direct contact, please pick up the extras. Several people will have already received your letter via email.
Any e-transfers for contributions to any of the funds at St. Paul’s, including for purchase of Gift Cards, should be sent to a separate email – email@example.com. Transfers to the office email will not be processed as quickly.
Anyone who addressed Christmas cards, they need to be returned to the office in order to be mailed this week. Thank you to everyone who stepped in to help with this.
The Salvation Army has asked us to help with their Kettle Campaign on Saturday, Dec. 5 at Sobeys. We still need to fill the hours of 5 – 8 pm. If you can help for some of that time, contact the church office.

In the event of a storm on Sunday, a decision will be made by 8 am whether to hold a service in person. If there will not be a service in the Sanctuary, an announcement will be placed on Facebook and the message on the phone will be changed. Tune in to Zoom as outlined below for a virtual service at 10 am.
Reminder: Grocery Gift Cards are available at the office. If you purchase a gift card through St. Paul’s, 4-5% of your purchase is given to the church while you get full value of the card. With your cards for Sobeys or SuperStore, you can not only buy your groceries but almost anything else the store sells. Also, they can be gifts to your family or others, near or far. They can be used across Canada at any of the affiliated stores. Cards are available in denominations of $100, $50, $25, or $10.
