Midge is an 81 years young widow who lives alone. She is employed as a cashier at a culinary school. Since she is working full time, she does not have much time to volunteer, but she enjoys helping the people of the Co-op pick out their food on Sundays. Helping others gives purpose to her life.
Poppy Rules at Vons!
Thanks to the generous shoppers at Vons’s on Stockdale and California where our very own Poppy Stewart was able to collect several baskets of food last weekend.
Greg Glenn has served as Usher Chair since the formation of Grace Episcopal.
He has done a remarkable job training and scheduling ushers for not only Sunday services, but our special services, funerals, weddings, concerts and for anything and anytime ushers are needed. He always has a smile and a joke to share. Greg is now our Bishop’s Warden and with all the responsibilities that go with this position, he is taking off just one of the many hats he wears. Greg not only serves on the Bishop’s Committee, he started and leads the St. Paul’s Bridge Club, is a member of the Men’s Group, teaches Sunday School and serves on the Child Development Center’s Ad-Hoc Committee and gladly volunteers as needed. His off church time you can find him volunteering as a Docent at the California Living Museum.
Our St. Paul's "Bag Lady", Welcome Bags that it is!!!
Louise Cooper quickly moves from pew to pew, introducing our Sunday Service Visitors to the congregation. Along with the introduction she gives every visitor a welcome bag that contains our Midweek and a treat. This day she was modeling her new hat given to her by Amanda Gaona.
Beginning in May, ushers and greeters will merge and now be under the Welcoming Committee umbrella now chaired by Armida VanWinkle. Armida came to St. Paul’s ready to work. She has chaired the Yellow Bag Committee and currently organizes the donations, does a lot of the shopping and helps fill bags with DOK once a month. She regularly visits resthomes, convalescent hospitals, rehabiltation centers and the homeless on the street offering conversation, prayer and homemade blankets donated by our Janitorial Crew,
Just Johnson. She has been a greeter, an usher and a volunteer in many ministries that have needed an extra set of helping hands. Her crockpot meatballs are always a favorite when she brings them to our events and celebrations. During her off church time you can find her at Regency Lanes. She is the longtime secretary for many of her husband’s and friend’s bowling leagues. A big Thanks to Jerry and Sara Pettiford for bringing Armida to St. Paul’s to visit. She has become one of our many St. Paul’s Treasures. Thank you Armida for your hard work and dedication.
