Outreach for September
St. Jude’s Breakfast Program. Cash donations go toward provision of a nutritious breakfast
for guests here two or three Saturdays per month. There have been over 100 people served by a
wonderful group of volunteers.
Well, we continue to be surprised by the numbers who come to the Breakfast Program. We
served 112 meals last Saturday morning. This does not mean 112 people came through our
doors. We pack up breakfasts to go for 4 or 5 families who have difficulties coming to the
church – whether because of illness, age, or other issues. Some who come into the line pick up a
meal to go for a spouse or a shut-in neighbour. And still, we have many who eat with us,
enjoying a bowl of hot oatmeal or two, checking out the clothing, books and toiletries on hand,
and visiting with friends. This past Saturday, we met 3 new men who had been told about our
meal by others – one taking 3 buses to reach us. The need in our community is great – we are so
thankful to our faithful donors for your continued support and belief in what we are doing –
Our next breakfast is Saturday September 30th. Please consider coming out to see your team in
St. Paul’s Food Bank
Our next Food Bank Sunday is Sunday, 8th October.
They always appreciate Spaghetti Sauce , canned meat , mac & cheese , peanut butter , cereals ,

Nearly New Shop. Fall clothing is now available, go check out the bargains!
A Weekly Bible Study will be offered via Zoom on Thursday evenings at 7:00 p.m. beginning
September 28th. Everyone is welcome. You can attend every week or just occasionally if that
is what your schedule allows. We will hear a passage of scripture read a number of times. Each
time the passage is read participants will be asked to reflect on a different question. Following
each reading of the passage participants will be invited to share their thoughts and reflections on
the question they were asked to think about. This is a very informal approach to reading and
talking about scripture and again everyone is welcome.
Here is the link for the study which again will be held each Thursday at 7:00 p.m. beginning on
