Our council met for the annual retreat on March 9, 2019.
Pastor Harvey presented a power point focusing on Change. Critical points that were discussed were:
- Fluid vs. Flexibility
- Be organizationally agile
- Must be faithful to:
- Evangelical Lutheranism
- Small Congregation
ELCA strengths: traditions, reforming, liturgy and music, sacraments.
Pastor Harvey discussed our strengths at St. Paul to be commitment to Mission, care for others, and the laity involvement.
As we continue forward into this next chapter in our lives (as a church congregation) we must remember that we are a strong church family with community commitment.
The transition team was unable to meet with Pastor Sarah due to the blizzard so another meeting will be set. The transition team will meet with each of you, either after church on Sunday or at some other time that will be set to get your input into our mission and see where you might see our church going in the next few years.
We still need a person or two who would like to go to the Synod Assembly. If you are interested, please let a council member or Andrea know.
Again, if you ever have any questions please feel free to ask any council member. If we don’t know the answer, we will find it out for you.
Thanks for your continued gifts and offerings to St. Paul.
Yours in Christ,
