On June 20, 2018 the nation marks World Refugee Day, a day when we stop and celebrate “the strength, resilience and courage of refugees worldwide.” This year’s national day of recognition comes in the midst of the ongoing U.S. immigration conversation regarding the separation of children from parents.

Dear Parishioners – I hope you are having a wonderful summer! We normally don’t write a Warden’s Corner update during the summer, but I want to update you on current stewardship and upcoming events. Stewardship contributions traditionally lag a little during summer, but this summer, for some reason, is more of an exception than the rule. Please prayerfully consider bringing your 2018 stewardship pledge payments up to date. This will help us keep the lights on, clergy and clerical staff paid, and infrastructure like air conditioners etc. working.
Sunday September 16th is the 60th celebration of St. Paul’s and the official kick-off for the Welcoming in Christ – The Anniversary Capital Campaign. To date we have received over $1,000,000 in capital campaign pledges, but we have a long way to go to reach our goal of $3,250,000.
In Peace – Jeff Kager, Senior Warden
As of July 30, 2018, we have enough volunteers. Thank You! We are looking for volunteers for our 60th anniversary capital campaign. We need people to stuff envelopes for the campaign, help set up a tour of our campus, or be tour facilitators and volunteers to hand out sealed packets. All volunteer sessions will occur at different times and will be for about an hour each. Thank you for all you do for St. Paul’s!

Welcoming in Christ – The Anniversary Capital Campaign: On Sunday, June 24, 2018 architectural renderings of our Parish goals for the capital campaign will be on display in the narthex. The plans include significant repairs, a new Parish Hall, renovated kitchen, Education building, and Chapel and a location change to Kids Club. These improvements will create space for spiritual development, fellowship, and service. In early fall, we will celebrate our 60th anniversary – please take a moment to review our plans for our next 60 years!
