Announcements:


 

St. Paul's is going to begin fundraising for our second year of support for the Camp of the Cross Capital Campaign as we work with the Camp to raise donations to build a multi-purpose building that includes a new kitchen and dining hall. Our church would like to raise and donate to the Camp Capital Campaign $16,500 each year for three years. We met our goal last year and we would like to meet our goal for the next two years. We are designating October as Camp Capital Campaign Month.  We will be asking for donations and again this year we are going to have a Silent Auction as a fundraiser. If you have items that you would be willing to donate to a Silent Auction, please bring them to the church by September 21st. We will begin the Silent Auction at the Fleischkuechle Supper which is September 27th. We will end the Silent Auction at 11:00 am on Sunday, October 26th. Items will be on display in the Fellowship Hall throughout October. Again, if you have items that you would be willing to donate to a Silent Auction, please bring them to the church by September 21st. Thanks for your support.

Box Tops for Education - With school starting, it's time to bring in your Box Tops for Education. Drop them in the container in the church entry. We'll get them to the right place for you. In 2013/2014 the goal was $1,500; $1,317.58 was raised. That's a lot of pieces of paper at ten cents a box top.  Since the start of the program, $13,519 has been raised. This money adds so much to the programs offered at Bob Callies Elementary. Please watch your packaging and save the box tops. It's simple, easy and painless. Bring them to church anytime throughout the year. You matter so much for the success of this program. Goal for this year is $1,000. Let's surprise the coordinator and exceed that amount!
