Gathering Under the Canopy

I cannot help but to offer a preview of an important new initiative that we will be embarking upon as a community of faith. Although we tried a different version of this idea some time back, this is new and with a huge emphasis on healthy.

Beginning on September 14, Saint Paul’s will open her doors to welcome everyone in our immediate vicinity and beyond for an evening of fellowship over a home-cooked, healthy meal under the Canopy of Love.

(Continue Reading…) The term “canopy” evokes images of shelter, welcome, protection, inclusivity, and compassion. These are values that Saint Paul’s stands for, and I believe a weekly supper open to the entire community will be an extension of our ministry to those who have otherwise not been a part of our common life. More importantly, it will be a tangible affirmation that they, too, are invited to sit under the Canopy of Love over a home-cooked, healthy supper.

We are recruiting volunteers to help make this happen, and so if you are a culinary enthusiast, a fan of making different salads, have a passion for creating all kinds of desserts, or simply enjoy setting up and helping to clean, please reach out to Manny or Zach. You will be welcome to join the team which will make this gathering click.
