Sunday Worship Times
8:30am and 11:00am
This is June, the month of grass and leaves….
Already the aspens are trembling again,and a new summer is offered me. 
– Henry David Thoreau
At St. Paul’s UMC we will not only experience a new summer, but June will also bring us the end of Marianne’s ministry in Helena.  So, though we will welcome a new summer, we will also be welcoming new staff as we face the end of twenty-three years of inspiring sermons from Marianne.
On June 4 Marianne will speak to us explaining the many gifts of the spirit, using the scripture from 1 Corinthians 12: 3-13.  Here we are told we will all be given spiritual gifts according to our abilities.
June 11 is the last day for the Chancel Choir this season, and Jillian has put together a very inspiring cantata using songs of peace, unity and the foundation of faith.  The Chancel choir will be singing at both the 8:30 and 11:00 services.
Marianne will be back with us on June 18 when she will tell us the story from Genesis 18 where Sarah laughs when she is told she will have a son, because she and her husband were very old. 
Marianne’s final Sunday with us will be June 25 and I am sure it will be a most memorable time of worship and farewell.  We are all going to miss Marianne and her ministry, and this is a Sunday you will not want to miss.
As suggested in the quote from Henry David Thoreau, “A new summer is offered us” and at St. Paul’s UMC there will also be many new things offered us.
