Thoughts From The Pastor

Dear St. Paul Family,

The St. Paul Administrative Council will convene on Sunday, August 5, at 5:30 p.m., at East campus. This is a called meeting to receive a recommendation from Finance Committee, in response to the Board of Trustees, to obtain a loan to pay for roof replacement of both campuses

You should have received your quarterly giving statement by now. If you haven’t, please let us know. Enclosed with the statement is some information about various ministries and areas that we will continue to lift up. Please look over this information, as well other church media and announcements, as you join me in prayer for the intentional ministries of our congregation. Most of all in this regard, we want to be faithful to the call of God for St. Paul in this place and time.

As you will see in the pane below, St. Paul is in the process of verifying and updating member information. This is so very important. As you receive mailed correspondence about this, we thank you in advance for your assistance. Among the faithful workers on this project are Gerda Leek (hours and hours!), Russ Bayne, Terry Fordemwalt, and Doug Somerville.

Thanks so much to the demo crew who worked at the parsonage in the formidable heat while we were away on vacation, taking down the old privacy fence in the backyard: James Freeman, Mona Loper, Tommy Fairfield, Milton Seymour, George Duffee-Braun, Terry Fordemwalt, John Kendall, and Bobby Etzold.

This Sunday, 9:00 Downtown and 11:00 Downtown services will hear from Rev. Betty Weaver, who will be preaching on “Heart Dis-ease: Old Treatment vs. New Method 2,” with a focus on Matthew 5: 27-37.

At East 9:00 and “Live at 11:11” services, M.J. Kirby will wind up the “Make Summer Count” series, preaching on “Jesus Christ: 607.”

Have a great weekend and see you Sunday! Rick
