Have you ever wanted to read the Old Testament but never got to it? Want to know more about the book of Genesis? How do we today, as Christians read the Old Testament?

The renovation of the Parish Hall is just about complete and the space looks great! Back to school night is Wednesday, September 3rd and all will be impressed! Many thanks to Alex Antonelli, John Rivell, Carlos Guzman, the Renovation Committee of the Day School Board and vestry, and all others who worked to make this project a success!
Youth Group In Transition
Over the summer, we heard from Wes Clarkson that he had a good chance to return to Charlottesville. While he regretted to leave his work here with us, he could not turn down this opportunity. Obviously, this leaves us with Youth Group in transition. As the staff reconvenes, we will endeavor to find just the right combination of leaders to resume the program.
St Paul's Book Group – September 24th and 28th
St Paul's book group had a lively discussion in July, attended by 10 book lovers. The book group offers two meeting times in September: Wednesday, Sept. 24th at 7:30pm and Sunday, Sept. 28th after the 10am service. Everyone is welcome and invited. All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr is a novel set in Europe in World War II, which can appeal to men and women readers. It's a long book, but reads quickly and you won't want it to end.
September Outreach Donations
This month our donations will be given to St. Albans Episcopal Church in New Brunswick. It is a mission church and was also the discernment parish of our own parishioner and postulant, Casey Woodruff. St. Albans operates a thrift shop and is in need of electronics and small kitchen appliances. The shop provides much-needed items to the community at a low cost and its income is also used to help St. Albans continue its other mission work. This is a great opportunity to recycle those unused electronics and small appliances. Questions or transporting needed to St. Paul's, please contact Casey 908-868-4915 or email@example.com. As always, thank you for your generosity as we help our neighbors!
We have 2 openings on the bread team to pick up on Sunday mornings at Stop & Shop and deliver to another location in Westfield. Interested? Please contact Sara Clarkson firstname.lastname@example.org or 908-612-3962. Great service project for our teens (w/ some help from their parents)
