St. Paul's this weekend

There is a lot going on this weekend at St. Paul's, so today's posting is a bulletin board (and if you haven't seen yesterday's, do please scroll down):

Today (Saturday) 10:00 am to 2:00 pm: you are invited to help make artful posters and banners for the 350 Bell Ringing Event on Sunday Oct. 25. This is the second year we have rung the bell to draw attention to the issue of global warming.

It will be a great rainy day activity! Please join the artists in the 3rd, 4th, & 5th grade room at the end of the second floor hall in the Church School Wing. For more information about the cause, clicking HERE.

Sunday, October 18 at the 10:00 am service: The Rev. Dr. James A. Forbes, Jr., Senior Minister Emeritus of The Riverside Church in New York City, will be our guest preacher. A reception honoring the Rev. Forbes will be held in the Parish Hall following the service.
The Rev. Forbes will also be the speaker for the local United Nation Association Chapter Meeting later in the day at 3:00 p.m. at the Thomas Jefferson Memorial Church, Unitarian Universalist, 717 Rugby Rd.

Monday, Oct 19 at 6:30 pm: IMPACT Annual Assembly at St. Thomas Aquinas Church. This is a coalition of 31 congregations, including St. Paul's, working on social justice issues. We will be voting an issue to focus our energies for the year. The issues under consideration are: (1) availability of interpretation / translation services; (2) Pedestrian safety; (3) Jobs and wages. The pre-school education is being carried over from last year. Songs, prayer, democracy, justice! For more information clicking HERE.
