Goal Setting for St. Paul 2017 and Beyond!
We’ve made significant progress addressing the short-term goals: Bible Study is happening; Contemporary music is being incorporated into the Sunday worship service; Sermons are on the website; VBS was successful; participation continues at the Northgate Park Food Truck Rodeo; We’ve cleaned the Nursery; this Bulletin now contains all church events on one side; the items in Hannah’s Closet have been donated to TROSA and Urban Ministries; and Wednesday Community Worship is happening in the Coffeehouse! What’s next?
ALL OF US: Let’s get the Workgroups together to discuss the plans for the medium and long-term goals for Church Council consideration.
We are transforming our community!!
