President's Message

August 2019

He (Jesus) said to them "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all you soul, and with all your mind.  This is the greatest and most important command.  The second is like it:  Love your neighbor as yourself."

Matthew 22:37-39

August 2019

Greetings to all! I hope you are enjoying the hot and humid summer! As you are reading this our church has been transformed into a galaxy of adventure for children of the congregation and community to embark on a “Miraculous Mission”, this year’s VBS Theme. The Key Theme of the week is “JESUS SAVES THE WORLD” and the Key Bible Verse is John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.” The excitement of the children is exhilarating and exhausting, but what a wonderful opportunity to share the word of God. Many thanks to the volunteers that share their time and talents to make this week such a huge success!

St. Paul’s is also here to share the good news of Jesus with adults too. Please check the weekly bulletin for information on Bible Studies, groups, committees or choir(s) that meet weekly or monthly. If you have a question or are interested in starting another group, please talk to the Pastors or anyone on council.

The LEAD Team will be attending their Fifth Seminar the weekend of August 16th as we continue our three-year journey of transformation to deepen discipleship, inspire relationships with God, each other and our neighbors. The primary focus of this seminar will be Generosity and Decision-making. The group will have more explanation in the September Newsletter.

Many other fellowship opportunities are happening in August. They are located throughout this newsletter and in the weekly bulletin. I hope to see you at one of them.

As this article comes to a close, I hope to see you in worship soon.
