Kid's Super Summer Sunday School
On June 22, our topic was FAITHFULNESS “The fig tree with no fruit.” Luke 13:6-9. Being faithful means, when you know what to do you follow through. As you complete each day’s tasks pray, “God, help me to be an example of your faithfulness in ever area of my life.”
This summer, we’ll squeeze every ounce of wisdom from the Fruit of the Spirit as found in the Book of Galatians. We’re not talking your garden variety fruit here, friends. We’re talking about Love, Patience, Goodness, Faithfulness and Self Control. Sweet! Hope to see your kids in Super Summer Sunday School!
Summer Sunday School ~ June 1- August 31 ~ 9:45-10:45am

Soul Food ~ A Ministry to the Homeless
A new mission ministry has started this winter called Soul Food, a monthly distribution of food and warm clothing the last Saturday of each month. Items are collected throughout the month in the church office or bins in Sanders Hall. Trucks are loaded with your donations and delivered across the lake to the homeless community. To contribute, please bring coats, gloves, socks, hats, and scarves for clothing... and pull-tab individual pack food items i.e., 4 oz. fruit cups/applesauce, pudding cups, peanut butter (comes in a 3 pack) “Jif to Go”, Individual boxes raisins, Granola bars, Fruit bars, Vienna sausage, Crackers-cheese or peanut butter, Pretzels, Tuna/chicken salad/crackers, etc. To serve on this team, please contact Belinda McClellan through our church office, 385-5146.
Churches Working Together to Feed our Neighbors
Manna on Meridian is a joint ministry of congregations on Meridian Road in Tallahassee. The idea is simple: to give nutritionally balanced bags of groceries to anyone who comes to our monthly distributions. No questions to answer, no forms to fill out – just sharing the gifts that God has given us.
Each week, congregation members bring whatever nonperishable food items they can to church, and those items are added to the Manna pantry. During the month, volunteers go shopping with donated funds to supplement food donations. Volunteers also get the bags of groceries ready for distribution. Then, on the third Saturday of each month, people who need grocery assistance come by the Manna pantry at Faith. (So far, we’ve relied on word of mouth, and it has worked well.) Each household is allowed one bag of groceries. The doors stay open from 9 a.m. until 10 a.m. We generally distribute 200 bags of groceries. Those who volunteer for Manna say these activities acquaint them with a host of new people, whether those people are bagging groceries, distributing them or taking those groceries home.
Our target foods: Peanut butter, spaghetti sauce, pasta, dried beans, cereal, canned chicken/tuna/fruits/ vegetables/soup. (No glass containers, please.) Donations of food items may be placed in the shopping cart in Sanders Hall or money donations earmarked for Manna through the offering plate.
To serve in this ministry, please contact Stephanie Coughlin through the church office. Thank you for supporting this ministry and praying for those we serve.

Spiritual Gifts Discovery
"Now concerning spiritual gifts, brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed. --- Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of services, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who activates all of them in everyone. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good." (1 Corinthians 12:1, 4-7)
Saint Paul's has a way for you to take a Spiritual Gifts inventory online. If you would like to take this 80 questions survey and receive immediate results of the ways God has shaped you, please click here. The survey takes about 15 to 20 minutes and you will be presented with your top three to five gifts as soon as you are done.
