Dear St. Paul’s family, we will be suspending in person worship until at least after Thanksgiving Day due to the rapid increase in COVID-19 cases in our county and around the nation. Please be as cautious and careful as you were in March and April. Wear masks and keep social distance in public. Stay home as much as possible. And always hold all in prayer.

Music and Magic
December 13 from 12:00-1:00 PM

Once a month, Emily and Jessa will be leading a new children’s music group called Music and Magic, in which kids learn to play hymns on the ukulele. All children will be given their own uke to use in class and take home. The group will meet in-person once a month. The next meeting is December 13 from 12:00-1:00 PM in the sanctuary. They’ll end their time together by learning a magic trick! All ages are welcome, although the group is geared toward the elementary age level.

Demand for Children’s Winter Clothing:

The Cornell Farmworker Program has been receiving many requests for children’s winter clothing this year. If you or anyone you know has lightly used children’s clothing (especially boots, winter coats, hats, mittens, and clothes of all kinds in the 18 month – 2T range), they would be greatly appreciated! Please contact Amy Stoll (scottamy@gotsky.com) or Kristen Brennan (kmb.ithaca@gmail.com) to arrange a drop-off or pick-up.
