NEWS AND NOTES


HOUSEWARMING FOR THE MCKENNEYS - A box for your housewarming gifts for our new pastor and his family is in the entryway of church.  Gift cards are welcome.  The box will be available through September 25.  They plan to move in their new home in early October.  Please volunteer to help them.  

INSTALLATION SERVICE FOR PASTOR MCKENNEY - We will install Rev. Joel McKenney as pastor at St. Paul's in a worship service on October 9, 2016 at 3pm.  We invite everyone to come and worship with us.  We will have a meal afterwards as an opportunity for fellowship with Pastor McKenney and his family. 

ST. PAUL’S STUDENT ASSISTANCE ENDOWMENT FUND— Applications are available in the school office.  Student Assistance Endowment Fund is for any member of St. Paul’s that is continuing their education at a Synod school or beyond high school.  The applications must be turned in by November 1st to one of the Pastors or school office.

WORSHIP ENCOURAGEMENT – The Board of Elders is seeking friendly members for a Worship Encouragement Committee.  It would consist of 8-20 members who would meet regularly and focus only on encouraging members who are not coming to worship.  A general goal would be to contact members who were not at worship for the month by email, text, phone call, letter, or a home visit.  The goal is to be encouragers for one another.  “Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another…”  (Hebrews 10:25) Please sign up on the list at the communication center or talk with pastor.

COLLEGE STUDENTS – Please call the school office (487-5712) with your new address.  We would love to stay in touch with you while you are away at school.  We would also like to have your email address so we can email the monthly newsletter to you so you can stay up to date with what is happening at your church.
