Upcoming Events.

LABOR DAY BOOTH AND PARADE Mark your calendars! Labor Day weekend this year is from September 1st-September 3rd. We all know Labor Day weekend is a very busy time for families, but we really need volunteers to help make the Labor Day food booth a success. Helping with this fundraiser is a great way to get to know fellow worshipers better and working the booth is a fun way to interact with family and friends and with people attending the Labor Day Celebration. Let’s hit the ball out of the park! It takes all of the team working together to be successful. Signup sheets are on the table in the back.

St. Paul's Committee Chairs: please review Aug. 2017 through July 2018 expenses and provide 2019 budget number and any changes to Finance & Mission Committee on or before Aug. 12th by email mailto:Lnshep@iowatelecom.net or written request to Norma Shepard. Thank you.

Heart of Iowa Habitat for Humanity is extending a helping hand to existing homeowners by offering home repair services across Boone County in 2019. If you or someone you know could use some help with repairs such as a new roof, scrape and paint, new windows or doors, landscape renewal, or most anything on the outside of the house, the Helping Hands program could be a great solution. If internal home repairs are needed, Habitat has resources available for that, too. Contact Habitat for Humanity for details at 515-432-1168, email director@heartofiowahabitat.org, or stop in the office at 720 Story Street in Boone. There will be some exciting transformations when Habitat’s Helping Hands are on the job in 2019
