The hallway which runs along the Chapel and Parish Hall which John Murphy, Ken Keefer and the all the Property Committee have been working on for months removing the bulletin boards and repaint, will in the near future become the “History Hall” of St. Paul’s. The Archive has worked in conjunction with the Worship and Music Committee to make additions to this project. A “Clergy Plaque” which is nearing completion which will include all the Clergy of St. Paul’s who had a call to St. Paul’s and selected Assistant, Vicars and Associated. This work is part of our preparation for St. Paul’s 150th Anniversary which will occur in the fall of 2020.

Focusing on Our Time after Epiphany
The Epiphany Season will draw to a close March 5th with Shrove Tuesday which will mark the beginning of Lent. So the beginnings of Jesus’ Ministry here on earth occurs between Epiphany and the 7 Sundays that lead up to Shrove Tuesday and the beginning of Lent.
We are about to enter the 4th week after Epiphany. To re-cap
Jan 13th—”The Baptism of Our Lord” (Jesus Baptized by John in the river Jordan.)
Jan 20th-”The Wedding in Cana” (Jesus’ changes water into wine and performs his first miracle beginning His Ministry.)
Jan 27th-”Jesus reading in the synagogue in his home town” (There He reveals the mission of His Ministry.)
Going forward we will be focusing on:
February 3rd- “No prophet is accepted in his own country.” (Not everyone was pleased by Jesus reading in the temple with authority and announcing these “words have been fulfilled in your hearing”.)
February 10th-”Fishers of Men”
(Jesus calls Peter, James and John to follow him in His Ministry by performing his 2nd miracle of finding so many fish that two boats begin to sink.)
February 17th-”Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount” (Also known as the “Beatitudes” were Jesus explains to the crowd the Kingdom of Heaven.)
February 24th- “Continuation of the Sermon on the Mount.” (How the Christian should respond to world around them and “building faith” on a firm foundation.)
All this will lead us into the season of Lent. St. Paul’s Social Media Team will again be holding a “Count Down” to Easter journeying through Lent. We will be doing a number of posts in various media focusing on the scriptures that St. Paul’s we be looking at during Lent. Be sure and follow along on the following links:

St. Paul’s 150th Anniversary.
Fall of 2020 is not that far away and St. Paul’s will be celebrating its 150th Anniversary. As was done for the 140th Anniversary I would like to interview and collect the thoughts of some of our long time members and perhaps include some thoughts from our youngest members.
If you would like to contribute to the project or have any thoughts on direction or content, please let me know and get in touch with me?
