Updating St. Paul's Education Building
The June 23 congregational meeting has been postponed. After repeated assurances from three vendors that they would have their proposals for us in plenty of time for our review, only one has sent in a proposal, and that arrived only yesterday. It was impossible, therefore, for the church council to make an informed decision without the other proposals, as well as not enough time to carefully look them over. Hence the wise decision to postpone. A new date has not been set, but my personal hope is that it will be sometime this summer.
Collecting Donations for Toiletry Kits!
The following items are needed for each kit. We ask you to please give only new items:

- Two bath-size bars of soap (4 to 5 oz.) in their original packaging. Any brand is acceptable.
- One adult-size toothbrush in its original packaging.
- One sturdy comb, no packaging required.
- One set of metal nail clippers, no packaging required.
