"From the President's Corner"

Stephen Schmidt is President of the Church Council

From the President’s corner...

It's cold and winter has finally arrived in February. Covid infections are down, vaccinations are in process and everyone is anticipating the end of this long winter of isolation. The pandemic, however, is not over. There are new more dangerous strains of the virus and while we are all tired of the restrictions, now is not the time to let down our guard. Continue to be faithful to one another by wearing masks and maintaining social distancing.

We are anticipating in person services again some time in March, but there will be restrictions on numbers as before and precautions will be taken. With Spring coming we hope to restart outside evening service when the weather permits.

Church projects being looked into include restoring the bells and making them more functional. The building team is also looking into updating the lighting, sound system and audiovisuals in the sanctuary. All of this, of course, requires money. Some of it is in the budget, but we may need special fund raisers for the rest. More later as we firm up plans and needs.

Be safe. Be hopeful (confident expectation) and continue to walk in the light of God's love.

In Christ,
Stephen Schmidt
St. Paul Council President 2021
