United Thank Offering

The Episcopal Church Women’s United Thank Offering spring ingathering will be held at all services on Sunday, May 7.

St. Paul’s will also recognize and honor the ministry of the ECW that Sunday.

There will be envelopes in the pews and chapel chairs that day for your contributions, which you can then place in the offering plate or basket. Your offering may be made in cash or by check, payable to St. Paul’s ECW with “UTO” indicated in the memo line. You may also mail your offering to the church.

The United Thank Offering is an Episcopal Church Women’s ministry that is more than 100 years old. It directly supports our goal to be a missionary diocese. Twice a year, St. Paul’s ECW collects our offerings and sends them to the UTO diocesan chairman. A presentation is then made to the National Church where a select committee considers the many requests that have been received from both at home and abroad. We are especially proud that St. Paul’s is consistently among the largest UTO contributors in our diocese.

Let us show our thankfulness for all God has done for us by sharing our blessings with others. Please return the blue envelope with your gift on Sunday, May 7, or consider making a donation by mail.

Bazaar Chairs Needed

St. Paul’s Episcopal Church Women are looking for volunteers to chair the 71st Annual Bazaar and Luncheon, scheduled for November 8, 2017.

This event offers fellowship, food, treasures and crafts to appeal to our whole community. Many experienced volunteers have already signed up to help make this year’s event a success.

If you are interested in playing a leadership role in one of the longest-standing traditions of our parish, contact ECW President Christine Storch at
