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; the 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.
Playground: Workgroup met Sunday 9/17; plans are underway for a new playset and sprucing up of the existing playground equipment
Website: Workgroup met on 9/19; ideas were gathered for changes to the homepage and the rest of the website!
