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



October 2018 Giving Thanks!


Greetings!   As you read this we are now well into the Autumn season , and St. Paul's will have again sponsored Trunk or Treat as a community event.  This is usually a fun event for the kids and adults, and our youth have stepped up to sponsor games  this year.  I hope that it was a successful event!  We pause on All Saints Sunday to remember  those who have passed ahead of us- and then we look forward to beginning of the holiday season- before long it will be Thanksgiving.


I think back and we have so much to be thankful for.  We are part of a long time congregation here in Fulton.  God has a plan for St. Paul's, and He has a plan for each of us in this church family.  Our vision that began years ago to grow the size of  this church property was re-energized to finally complete the expansion of the cemetery.  Through the generosity of many of you, the cemetery expansion was quickly completed.  There were some other capital improvements that were also completed this year-the choir room renovation, the roof was repaired and the gutters improved to help mitigate the water collecting in the basement,  the gas heat conversion was begun, and  the parsonage porch was repaired.  We have two more years to collect funds to offset these projects and to complete many more.  I ask that each of you join me in helping to reach our 3-year goal of $316,000.  


That work and so much more only happens when you and your fellow members decide to commit your time to the work of St. Paul's.  I send a heartfelt thank you to all of you  who were able and willing to give your time to the many events and activities that we enjoyed together this year.  It takes the talents of many people to make this a living congregation.  Please consider giving more of your time to this wonderful community of Christ.  I am thankful that each of you has made St. Paul's part of your life.


 


Peace,


Erik
