President's Message

MAY 2019


“With God all things are possible!” Matthew 19:26 KJV



April 28, 2019         Many Thanks!

Greetings and best wishes to all members and friends.  When I take the time to write these words, it is also a time to reflect on what makes St. Paul's special.  It is the diversity of our members, the fact that we have decided that St. Paul's should be our church home and church family, and St. Paul's helps to meet our spiritual needs.  Like any large family, some of us are enjoying successes and others are facing challenges and difficulties. I have said before, that if you are facing challenges, please be sure that one of our pastors is aware.  Each of us should pray daily for the St. Paul's family and our future.

     This is my last column.  Sometimes challenging, other times a little easier to write, I have enjoyed sharing thoughts here monthly.  I want to thank all of you who have supported the congregation, the events, and each other as we have journeyed together these past two years.  I want to especially thank those of you who met the request to serve as members of Council- your commitment of time to help lead and guide the rest of us makes the many facets of church life possible at St. Paul's.  I also want to thank the leaders of committees and organizations for your leadership, time, and energy.  Finally, thanks to our pastors for their devotion and commitment to St. Paul's.

   On May 19th we will meet again for a semi-annual congregational meeting.  Please plan to attend as your participation is important.  I ask that you consider serving in an open role on Council.  And finally, I ask that you support your new Council and leadership at least as well as you have supported me.

  


Peace,


Erik
