Cesar Noble created this 12-minute video of the activities of God's Gardeners, a vitally important ministry of the church. Anyone can join the men and women who take care of the buildings and grounds by showing up at 7:30 (or so) on Thursday mornings. If you can't partake, give a nod of gratitude to your fellow parishioners who keep our campus spiffy.
Happy Easter!! Thank you for supporting last Sunday’s Easter Egg Hunt which was held in the church courtyard. Special thanks to Sophia Carter for putting candy in plastic eggs, for setup and cleaning up. Thank you to Meggie Guerrier and three Pearson grandchildren from Macon Georgia who have helped us for several years. Thank you to ECW for the books that 27 vendor children received on Saturday with Easter bags full of candy, writing supplies, and small toys. St. Paul’s congregation is very generous and loving.

While the last market day for this season is April 26, we will be having three big yard sales in the summer: May 31, Sept. 27 and Oct. 25, the last Saturdays of the month. Have stuff to sell but not enough to hold your own garage sale? This is your opportunity to get space for a small fee and join lots of your neighbors in displaying your goods. More information will be posted here in coming weeks. More on the market here.

Ladies of the church and friends gathered for an afternoon of fashion and tea, featuring the gently used fashion designer clothing that is for sale at the Unique Boutique at the Farmers' Market on Saturday mornings. The event combined fun and a good cause!
