There are many ways of giving to St. Paul’s.  Giving envelopes are distributed to each member/family in December for the following year for Current Expenses, Special Holy Days, Theological Education, and ELCA World Hunger.  There are special  envelopes for the Capital Campaign and an envelope which can be used for miscellaneous giving:  Food Pantry, Altar Flowers, Easter Flowers, or Poinsettias for Christmas.  Thrivent Choice and Amazon Smile are two other ways we receive donations and explained in the webpage.  You can give electronically through your bank and now electronic giving “Donate Now” from the webpage.  Just remember to get credit for your donation when using one of the miscellaneous envelopes, you need to write your name and envelope number if you know it on the envelope.

There are several fundraisers going on this fall to help cover renovation expenses of the Pantry and proceeds will go directly to the Capital Campaign.  They are:

Harvest Wine Dinner and Auction, Saturday, October 19, 5:30 p.m.  This event is the first of its kind at St. Paul’s.  The meal is being prepared by Brandon Hufnagel, chef of the Glen Rock Mill Inn.  The menu features locally sourced ingredients from his family farm and from other farms in the Glen Rock area.  Each course features a carefully selected wine to enhance the flavor of the food.  This is a five course meal designed to take us through the evening.  Click here for information on the auction to follow dinner. 

A calendar for 2020 “Italian Holiday”, featuring 12 watercolor paintings by Pastor Reep.  The images were painted on location in Italy.  The price for the Calendar is $20 and is available now and proceeds will be earmarked for the renovation expenses associated with St. Paul’s Food Pantry and Preschool. See the dropdown under Giving for information on purchasing the calendar!

A 3rd option to help defray renovation expenses is to buy “Cooking with Clyde”, a 230-page cookbook of recipes collected over 60 years by Sue Welsh Cassidy.  She loved to be in the kitchen as a child with her mother, Toni Welsh, and later her cat Clyde, for whom the book is named.  The cookbook is available at the church and all proceeds will go to the Capital Campaign.  Donation $20.
