  • Sunday Lunch Bunch: The Sunday Lunch Bunch (SLB) returns this Sunday.  The SLB is a genial group of St. Paul's parishioners who like to gather every FOURTH Sunday of the month for a casual meal and conversation. We select one of the area restaurants, then travel together by foot or carpool to our chosen destination. Transportation is always available when needed and all are welcome. No advance notice required, however, if you'd like to join us this Sunday, please look for the SLB sign-up sheet at coffee hour following the 10 O'Clock service. To learn more about the SLB, please speak with Ed Jacobson or Maryann Kurkjian, or you may ask any Usher or Greeter to direct you.
