Welcome to St. Paul's!
If you are looking for a church community, you may have just found it! St Paul’s has a long tradition of superb music, an inviting Sunday School, active youth group and effective outreach. This is a place where God is first and you can make a difference.
"When the people saw it, they fell on their faces and said, 'The Lord indeed is God; the Lord indeed is God'."
I Kings 18: 39

Second Sunday after Pentecost
+ It is Memorial Day weekend. (Next weekend will be our first weekend in ONC.) We will have infant and toddler care during the 9:30 service throughout the summer. While summer brings a different pace for some of us, God does not go on vacation- Thank God. He continues to provide, comfort, strengthen and inspire. See and celebrate the "coincidences" of his miracles (tiny and great, alike). He is all around us and whispering into us. How did you see God this week? Share your experiences and spread a contagion of thankfulness and joy.
+ Scripture with the Rector at 8:45 in the chapel: Who says you can't put God to the test? (certainly not Elijah).
+ May Food Pantry requests are: Spam (canned meat), crackers, Condiments: (ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise and relish), jelly and cereal. Hunger and need do not go on vacation.
+ The Food Pantry sends a beautiful Thank You to all of you. We donated 265 lbs. of food from January through March! (And together we gave over $3,000) Bring your can to church, and a friend's can, if you can...oh and your food also.
+ May Parish Prayer Cycle is Youth.
+ We are collecting craft supply items in preparation for the Christmas Bazaar: glue guns & glue sticks, florist tape & floral wire, and hotel complimentary sewing kits.
+ If you have misplaced a special prayer book, please call the office and describe it to reclaim it.
From Inside the Collar
The Season after Pentecost ("Ordinary Time") helps us to recognize God. Most of our life is made up, not of meaningful moments, but of daily routines, challenges, pressures, waiting, working, grieving and hoping. We live through and between the highs and lows, in ordinary time.
God chose to be born into that ordinary time and space in order to be with us, so that we might be in Him.
Practice looking for God: he longs for you. You will see him in nature, in coincidences, in scripture, on the news, in laundry, at work, in your children, in your spouse, in the books you are reading and the knitting you have to rip out and re-do. He is everywhere you are, making himself known. His presence changes everything. Life will never be ordinary again.
Mobile, Loaves and Fishes
The men at Harrington Hall are truly thankful for each generous contribution of time, food, and money from the people of St.Paul's and all of MLF-RI. Most of all they appreciate your prayers and love.
The next Mobile Loaves and Fishes run will be on June 14, 2016
