The Welcoming in Christ Capital Campaign committee is happy to announce one more vision tour on Sunday, September 2. The Tour will take place between the 9:00 and 10:45 services. Tour guides will lead you through our current facilities to honor the memories of our spaces and to help you envision what the new spaces will look like after our capital campaign. There’s no need to sign up ahead of time, just meet in the Narthex near the Choir Room at approximately 10:00 to start the tour.
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
