Sisters and Brothers, it's that time again as the UMM's NINTH Annual Golf Tournament fast approaches!  This year’s tournament is scheduled for Tuesday, September 18 at Odessa National Golf Club! Over the past eight years, the UMM Golf Tournament has earned $12,400, which in turn has allowed the UMM to sponsor several youth mission trips, sponsor youth rally in Ocean City, MD annually, sponsor mission trips to Nicaragua & purchase PC for Pastors in that area. Your continued help and support is greatly appreciated as we all participate in discipleship through St. Paul's. Golf entry form is linked above and can be found in the Narthex on the table. If you are not a golfer but want to be part of this giving event make your checks payable to St. Pauls UMC with the word "Golf" in the note section and place in the offering plate. Thank you for your continued support and God's Blessings to each of you! Any questions contact Paul Loder (302) 229-0046.


Brothers: Our next scheduled outing is for TUESDAY, September 11 with 9 AM Tee Time at Odessa National. Notice the day and date change! Looking forward to another great day of fellowship as we start to wind down our 2018 season.  Please advise your intentions. SCRIPTURE READ... PSALM 91. Also, if you are playing in church golf tournament I need names as soon as possible especially for the Banquet. Thanks & God Bless, Paul Loder (302) 229-0046

On Saturday, August 25, the UMM held their last breakfast meeting of 2018 and what a glorious morning it was with 23 Brothers in attendance! Hot cakes, sausage, mixed fruit, zucchini bread, OJ and coffee prepared and served by the fabulous UMM kitchen crew!  Lots of good pre-breakfast discussion, old and new business discussed during the meeting and it was a wonderful spiritual gathering of fellowship. Special acknowledgement was given to our brother Mark Holden, who is moving back to Vermont, for his service and faith to St. Paul's. Nothing but blessings and the best to Mark and family! It was also great to have Pastor Bo joining us for the first time allowing him to meet with the men and in his address to us to share with each of us of our responsibilities to God and church and that it was wonderful to feel and see God's presence during this morning’s gathering. The UMM are looking forward to working with Pastor Bo as we continue our journey on the road to Discipleship. The UMM's next meeting will be in April of 2019 and more info will follow.  All men of St. Paul's are welcome to be part of the UMM so please contact me if you are interested! Thanks and God Bless to All...Paul Loder

Well, not enough response to the upcoming Sandy Cove event, so we will have to cancel that also. In November, we usually go to the Everett Theater to see God's Power and Light Company and we'll get more information out on that in October. We are thinking of a social evening in October of going out to dinner. Probably on a Thursday night as most of the restaurants don't want a large group on a busy Friday. We are thinking of Thursday, October 18 and we would meet at 5:30 PM at Pat's Restaurant. If anyone has any ideas for a JOY event, we're open to suggestions.

It is not possible to predict what this coming season will be. The United States experiences annual epidemics of seasonal flu that are most common during the fall and winter months. Activity often begins to increase in October and November and peaks between December and February but can last as long as into May.

Getting vaccinated before flu activity begins helps protect you once flu season starts in our community. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for your immune system to fully respond and for you to be protected. CDC recommends that you should have the flu vaccination by the end of October however if you have not CEC recommends as long as the virus is circulating even into January or later you should receive the vaccine. The vaccine should be administered each year to provide the best protection. Multiple studies over different seasons and across flu vaccines and types of influenza virus have shown that the body’s immunity to influenza virus through natural infection or vaccination may decline over time.               

As we have in the past two years we are again offering flu shots in our Church. On Sunday, October 7, Living Will Pharmacy will be here immediately following the 8:30 AM service until after 12:30 PM. All that is needed is your insurance card and your arm! In an effort to speed up the process I am asking the Pharmacist if she would provide the paper work that needs to be filled out given-to me the week before to offer to those getting the vaccine prior to that Sunday.

Please Remember getting the vaccination not only protects you but those around you.
