In keeping with the themes, over the last few weeks, of small ways of furthering the gospel, if you shop at Amazon, consider making your purchases through smile.amazon.com and selecting St. Paul’s Episcopal Church as your favorite charity.
We are thrilled to be hosting our neighborhood’s Night Out on August 1st in the labyrinth! Join us outside from 5-8pm for food, live music, and a chance to meet local business owners and neighbors in Uptown. This is a great opportunity to celebrate our neighborhood and our lovely labyrinth!
Do you like to camp? What could be better than camping with other friends from St. Paul’s?! We picked a spot that is within an hour’s drive from Seattle, which makes for an easy day trip for those not inclined to camp for the full weekend. Sunday services will happen as scheduled. To learn more, contact Jeffrey Batstone at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s summertime and our labyrinth needs some TLC before we host Uptown’s Night Out on August 1 (see above). Join Prue Kluckhohn and her garden gang for a labyrinth work party on Saturday, July 29 at 9:30am. We hope to finish in a couple hours, before it gets too hot outside. Gloves, tools, and guidance are provided.

A Non-event Fundraiser
Saturday, August 5 from 6 to 11 p.m.
Save the date for the easiest and potentially the most fun fundraiser you’ve ever attended: stay home! Simply write a check to St. Paul’s for the amount you might have spent at a gala auction for your favorite charity, or some other summer weekend activity you might have spent money on, but didn’t. Stay tuned for information about how to give and stay-at-home donation prizes! Proceeds will support all of our parish ministries, including programs such as the Fatted Calf, the Karen Korn Project, and the Yes Fund.
Susanne Hutchinson leads a community yoga class each Wednesday from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. in the Parish Hall featuring both Gentle Yoga and guided meditation. The class is suitable for all ages and abilities: no special equipment or clothes are needed, and all experience levels are welcome.
2016-2017 Adult formation schedule is now available. Classes are open to everyone: visitors, newcomers, long-timers, and anyone who wants to connect with others, understand the Christian way of life, and nurture practices which enrich their lives in the world.
