TRANSGENDER DAY OF REMEMBRANCE
Saturday, November 20, 2021 @ 7:00 PM
In a spirit of inclusion and acceptance that is core to the mission of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, we are observing a Transgender Day of Remembrance.  Put on hold during the pandemic, this solemn ceremony will be observed again in 2021.  Please join us as we honor the memory of trans people that have lost their lives in the last year. Transgender individuals suffer on the edges of society and lose their lives at rates higher than cisgender people.

ANGEL GIVING TREE

Christmas is approaching quickly and our Angel Tree outreach to children in need is ready-to-go. Our Crossover partners provided us with the names, ages, and suggestions for 20 children. Each child will receive two gifts, one of clothing and one of a toy, game or gift card.  Monetary guideline is approximately $50.00 per gift.  Our “Angel Tree” will be set up in the church parlor beginning Sunday, November 14, where you can select a child’s name on a special ornament.
Monetary donations are also very welcome. Please send your donationons to the church to the attention of George Gibson. Be sure to note “Angel Tree” on your check.
If you have any questions, please contact the Angel Tree chairperson Carole Davis, phone/text 810-410-7789, email: mauderose@comcast.net.

TREES, TREES, and MORE ADVENT TREES
Starting Sunday, November 29, 2021
In celebration of Advent and the season that follows Advent, we will be placing “Thanksgiving/Advent” trees in the narthex and parlor beginning the Sunday after Thanksgiving. Each church group is asked to decorate a tree (the tree and lights will be provided). We hope to have an Altar Guild tree, Outreach Tree, Music Tree (more), Lay readers Tree, Vestry Tree and on and on. What your group puts on the tree tells its story, and we can all bask in the light and give thanks for the people that make our parish thrive.
