President's Message

October 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

November 2019

Happy autumn!  Fall is one of my favorite times of year.  I enjoy the cool evenings and taking walks gazing at God’s creation and how the trees change from bright green full leaves to vast beautiful colors of red, orange and yellow.  It reminds me how great our God is and how truly blessed I am to be his child.


Along with the change of the scenery, November is our annual congregational meeting, which will be held on November 17th in the Parish Hall, between services at 9:45am.  The council has gone line by line looking at the budget, most items are staying the same, others higher, and a few lower.  We are thankful to have such a generous congregation, dedicated staff and a beautiful building to come together in faith to worship our Lord. 


Thanks to Men’s Brotherhood and Eric Knoernschild, the area that will be the community garden has been plowed and a fence is around the perimeter.  The LEAD Team has met with Fulton Elementary, Grassroots and the Day Resource Center to help St. Paul’s connect with community and find new ways to serve others in need.    


St. Paul’s is a great place to worship, study, serve and I am very grateful to be a part of it. I pray that everyone has a blessed Thanksgiving with family and friends.  Hope to see you at the Thanksgiving Eve service, Thursday evening or Sunday morning service soon.


Peace and Blessings.
