Compassionate Card Ministry

The Compassionate Card Ministry is made up of 20 dedicated members of our congregation who create hand-made cards and encouraging messages to those in our directory, within our congregation, those on our prayer lists and others who are brought to our attention. Our purpose is to spread kindness and love to others through uplifting and personalized sentiments on hand-made cards. If you are not in our directory and would like to be added to our list, or if you know someone who would benefit from the blessing of a card, please contact Nancee Bleistine, nbleistine@yahoo.com.
 
PRAYER & PRAISE TEAM
 
Carole Harmon hosts a prayer circle, currently Thursday mornings at
10 AM - in person.  Please contact Carole if you are interested in joining the group or have a special prayer request. You can also find prayer request cards on the table in the Narthex.
 
 
 
HEALTH MINISTRY  
 
Seven years ago, St. Paul’s received an AED, (automated external defibrillator), from the State of Delaware. At the time I wrote several articles about the equipment and demonstrations for use. However, it has been a long time since we acquired this equipment and the loss of years with Covid brings the concern a review is perhaps needed again and perhaps even the location of the equipment has been forgotten.
 

The AED device is available in Fellowship Hall directly next to the bulletin board. It is attached to the wall in a glass enclosed box. It is easily activated once open with voice prompts giving the person administering it, directions of use, step by step.The AED is a sophisticated yet easy to use medical device which sends electrical shocks to restore the normal rhythm of the heart of those in cardiac arrest which could save a life. It can and does save lives when moments of action are few! Please familiarize yourself with the location. In the future, we will be offering certification
 
classes in AED/CPR/First Aid as soon as we have a certified instructor in-place. More information will follow as soon as we can get this organized.
 
Thank you, Ann
