Good day St. Paul’s,
We have a lot happening this week at St. Paul's. Please see below for more.
Also, for the event on Monday night, we would like to get a rough estimate of how many from St. Paul's will be in attendance. If you plan to attend that event, please let the office know :-)
A Night with the Persecuted Church - Monday, February 24 at 7:00PM in the Sanctuary
Please join Open Doors and St. Paul's as we host A Night with the Persecuted Church. This is an opportunity to hear stories of how people have sacrificed everything to follow Christ. You’ll be challenged to follow the examples of faith lived by those who follow Jesus no matter the cost. You’ll also have the opportunity to connect with your persecuted family through letter writing and prayer. Also, if you are able to run projection for this event, please let RJ know.

Picture Bulletin Board - Is It Missing You?
There are still a few gaps on the congregational picture board. Some of those gaps are just big enough to fit your photo!! If you have not already, please send in a copy of your favourite photo to the office (in person or by email to email@example.com). Feel free to include pets in your photos. If you do not have a photo but would like to have a photo included, please talk to RJ and he will take your photo to be posted.
