November 25

The United Thank Offering
There's a useful spiritual discipline to just counting your blessings.  Its value is compounded when we then respond with acts of gratitude.  The Episcopal Church Women have been encouraging the use of Blue Boxes, cardboard banks, as a way to build on this spiritual discipline.   When you feel blessed dropped a coin to bill in the box knowing that your gift will be a blessing to someone else.   During the service on November 25th we will collect the offering.   The money received will be pooled with similar offerings from around the Episcopal Church and used for special mission projects.

 Quiet Day
As we anticipate the coming busyness of the Christmas season, it's well to take some time to ground yourself, to come quiet in the presence of God.  The Way of Love is a spiritual discipline that could help you order your liife and bring you a measure of peace.  Register by calling the parish office, 989-426-9943, or add your name to the signup sheet in the narthex.  That's December 1, 10:00 -- 2:00 pm.

December 1
 Gladwin Christmas Parade
Each year the parade passes in front of St. Paul's.  This year, together with our covenant parish, Christ the King Lutheran Church, we will offer free popcorn and invite parade goers to our respective seasonal Services.  The Christmas Parade begins at 6:00 pm.
