Coming Up At St. Paul

Goal Setting for St. Paul 2017 and Beyond!
Thank you to each of you who are participating!
Church Council last Sunday concurred with the Goal Setting proposal and also blessed the workgroups as we embark on our journey of seeing the short-term goals accomplished.  Workgroups will also come together to discuss the plans for the medium and long-term goals for Church Council consideration.
Contact Marianne Ward with any questions.
