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.
School is back in session and high school students are looking for volunteer hours. We are very
fortunate to have some students working with our program, they bring energy, enthusiasm and
have great questions – not only about the program but also about the other volunteers. And, at
least one volunteer plans to continue with us even when he has served his 40 hours. We give
thanks for their help and all the St. Jude’s members who faithfully give of their time to provide a
safe and welcoming space for those in need.
Our next breakfast is this Saturday September 30th from 9 – 10:30 am. All are welcome to
share or come and see your team in action!
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 ,
canned soup, etc., but they would also like shopping bags, plastic or other, since they are running
out, and now they need egg cartons again.
Nearly New Shop. Fall clothing is now available, go check out the bargains!
FundScrip Rick will be in the Narthex this Sunday, 1st October (!), after the services to take
your card orders.
A Weekly Bible Study will be offered via Zoom on Thursday evenings at 7:00 p.m. beginning
tomorrow, 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
