Thank you ….a huge THANK YOU to everyone who took the opportunity to be a part of our Easter Breakfast here at St Paul. It takes many hands to make our breakfast a success year after year. Hands to make decorations, crack eggs, cut up fruit, to serve and to clean up, all working together, to make Easter morning special for all. A special thank you to Phil Voge and his crew for donating and then cooking the sausage and ham Easter morning. He is Risen, He is Risen Indeed!!!

Ladies: On Saturday, April 7, at 12 pm, the Women’s Ministry will be holding a luncheon in the fellowship hall with guest inspirational mission speaker, Nancy Cohen. She will share her interesting story of mission work in Russia, France and Israel. Come join us as she encourages us and equips us to “Join Jesus On His Mission”. RSVP to the church office. Cost is $5 to the office or at the door.
