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.
"For all must carry their own loads."
Galatians 6: 5
Sixth Sunday after Pentecost
July 21, 2019
+ Sunday Morning Bible Study 8:30 am
is taking a summer vacation.
A.S.A.P.: Always Stop and Pray
+ North Kingstown Food Pantry Requests for July: cereal; canned vegetables; canned fruit; soup; crackers like saltines, and cake mix.
+ The AC IS coming, but we looked for and found more energy efficient units (equal tonnage for cooling), in order to lessen the electrical load. So, NEXT week, really :)
Mold and other interior issues need to be resolved before the church can be open. Ice dams and wind driven rain have not helped. There is a 10' x 15' section of the ceiling that is about to fall. No One is allowed to go in until further notice. ONC is the property of the Diocese and the Bishop and Diocesan staff are aware of the issues and have begun addressing them. Church Insurance has been out to inspect, so help is on the way. Be encouraged that "our" beloved ONC will be lovingly restored and back to sacred use. It isn't going to be overnight. You will be kept up to date.
From Inside the Collar
"My friends, if anyone is detected in a transgression, you have received the Spirit should restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness."
The way of Jesus, the path of salvation, The Way; is the way forgiveness. We have to "delight in God's will"=get up and be enthusiastic in God's will. And, "walk in thy ways"= move toward forgiveness, it requires decision and heart and movement. This is a true saying and worthy of all to be received: "Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners."
Fourth of July brought out some political "commentary"? Try this from my cousin Andy: "Let's make America Gracious again".
